Affordable luxury where the Bushveld is your playground

Set amongst the trees on the banks of the Sabi River, just 100 metres from the Kruger National Park, the Protea Hotel Kruger Gate offers fantastic accommodation and an ideal location in which to enjoy the abundant nature and wildlife of this region.

Presenting excellent value for money, the hotel offers spacious rooms and thatched chalets connected by raised walkways designed to give a tree house feel. In the evenings dine under the stars at the open air Lapa Restaurant while enjoying traditional African entertainment and during the day the new pool deck bar overlooking the Sabi River is the perfect place for game viewing!

Outstanding

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The grounds are simply beautiful - completely in the middle of nature, with really clean and well-maintained infrastructure and rooms. Walking through the grounds, you are surrounded by trees and bushes, (sometimes) monkeys and exotic birds. It really is like a haven. The service is 10/10 - the staff are friendly, helpful and always happy to chat. I was here with my partner, and it was simply a wonderful getaway for us both. Additionally, it is literally 100m from the Kruger Gate entrance - we were there by 6am each morning and got into the park very quickly, so I didn't at all feel affected by the fact that we weren't staying inside the park. There are some small renovations happening at the moment, so your view outside your room might be slightly impeded, so might be worth checking ahead of time, however, this did not affect my experience at all - the disruption was very minimal. Really enjoyed my stay, I only wish that I was able to stay longer!

Amazing design that fits the park

Frisco, Texas

A good hotel given the area of a national park. Not much to do in Kruger if your not doing a safari each day sp make sure you only book for the amount of days for which you have the safari. Also make sure you book the hotel with breakfast and dinner included as there is nothing else to eat in the area. The breakfast was great, and the dinner was great as well. Dinner had local meats mixed with the usual beef and etc. A good touch was the noodle station to get something different. The hotels needs to step up the dessert station which we found lacking. Nothing tasted good in that area. It would be nice for the hotel not charge guest for soda with dinner as it is included. I understand charging for beer and liquor, and wine but Soda really? That aside the hotel was as advertised. The staff is great and the hotel is secure. The design is a jungle theme which fits into the Kruger national park. We did see Monkeys during the day but we did not see any touching the plates and all for the meals. The hotel made our visit to Kruger great.
