Yes, just let them know at African Roots when your plane arrives and they will be waiting with your name on a sign :-) . the hotel is only 10 minutes from the airport and you'll be snug in bed before you know it. They also drove us to the airport for our 11 pm outgoing flight. African Roots staff are extremely helpful.
