Myself and my 2 sons had a very enjoyable 4 night stay at Royal Kruger lodge. The Manager and staff were very attentive and did all they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Julia the Head cook was amazing and her 4 course meals were always plentiful and delicious. If we have the opportunity, we will return. Thank... More

My husband surprised me with this trip and wanted a 5 star hotel. However, this lodge was so quaint and right in the middle of the outdoors. It was so fun to be near all of the animals and Kruger Park. The staff were super friendly and tended to your every need. The food was fabulous. We want to take... More

This was complimented with the amazing kitchen /house staff that put on a four course meal every night seemingly from nothing, not to mention the five star lunches and Breakfast. Unfortunately we were not there for as... More

We had a wonderful time at Royal Kruger Lodge. From arrival until we left the staff couldn't do enough for us. The accommodation was clean and well laid out. The food was delightful. They were even able to cater for my gluten free diet. Would highly recommend Royal Kruger to anyone travelling to South Africa.
