Monkeys in the trees, lush gardens, rooms were clean, bathtub with rose petals and our room had a shared sitting room with I believe 4 other rooms. It was just like a scene from out of Africa. The bartender was excellent, food terrific and...

Had an amazing time at river trees. When I got there I was immediately greeted by their awesome staff. The man that met me, Patrick, made sure I was take care of. He brought my bags to my room, gave me some awesome insight into the resort, and really made me feel welcome. After that my family and I went...

I'm sorry, only just saw this now, so it's probably too late. I don't know for sure but my educated guess is, yes, local transportation is familiar with all flight arrivals, international and domestic, and so I would be very surprised if there aren't cabs waiting. Don't let the hairy hour put you off: Most Africa flights are overnight, and local staff are used to working graveyard shifts. Sorry to have been so tardy in response, but hope that helps.
