Scheduled Transfers (compulsory)
In order to limit the impact on the environment, Simbavati Trails Camp can only be reached by scheduled included transfers from Eastgate Airport outside Hoedspruit. Since transfers are limited to one per day, not all flights connect to the transfer and some flights may result in a longer waiting time. Self-drive guests have to park their cars at Hoedspruit's Eastgate Airport at a nominal fee of R 30 per night (subject to change).
Please note that this is a scheduled transfer shared with other guests coming to our lodges and camps. If you are planning to drop a rental car at Eastgate Airport, please ensure that you arrive well before the flight arrival time as unfortunately we cannot wait for late arrivals. The transfer time is approximately 1½ hour of which ½ an hour in open safari vehicle.
