We went for the day to the Kruger National Park, and decide to have lunch just outside the Kruger Gate. We sat on the stoep with bold wooden furniture. We enjoyed the quick lunch, typical safari Experience.

Dear Vorsters

If you are looking for a Safari Experience then you definitely came to the right place. Thank you for your positive comments regarding the lunch you had with us.

Situated only minutes from the Paul Kruger Gate, with viewing decks to watch the animals pass by, Protea Hotel Kruger Gate offers a unique bushveld experience.

I will be sure to commend chef & TEAM on their lunch offering.

We hope to welcome you back for a longer stay next time.

Kind Regards
Francois Meyer

As a family with two young children, we really loved the selfcatering chalet at the Hotel. It was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Seeing the animals in close proximity was awesome - right in front of the vewing deck. The children also loved the pools and kids facilities which were clean and well maintained. We made use of the hotel restaurant for dinner. The food was very tasty with lots of dishes to choose from and we loved the open-air atmosphere of it. Kruger Park is right next door and we were able to go in and view lots of animals.

Dear CatloverDurban

Your comments are everything that a General Manager wishes to hear! I am delighted to read such amazing feedback regarding you recent stay at Protea Hotel Kruger Gate.

Our self-catering chalets are ideal for families or those travelling in small groups. I am glad that they were to your liking and provided all the facilities you required.

Ensuring that there are activities to keep the entire family busy is important and your review proves that one can do that with us. Whether it’s the kids playing or swimming in the pool, the adults can enjoy a drink at the viewing deck or treatment at the spa.

Dining in the open air, under the stars is very unique and the delicious food to compliment it makes the experience extra special. I will pass on your positive comments to the Chef, which will only inspire the TEAM to strive for excellence.

Until your next trip to the bushveld, we wish you safe travels.

Kind Regards
Francois Meyer

The original Kruger Gate Lodge, was flooded and ruined. Protea Hotel Group took over this lovely country set Lodge, and renovated it. Throughout the Hotel, there are reminders of the original structures.

The evening bon-fire buffet dinner is a must, as well as sitting on the deck and overlooking the river in all its glory...

A definite return to venue!

Room Tip: Large families should go for the Chalets, private house with plenty of privacy.

Dear Liza V

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for posting a review on TripAdvisor.

We have done our best to ensure that the design and décor fits in with the breathtaking surroundings of the Kruger National Park. The open-air restaurant and viewing decks that overlook the wildlife and bushveld are just some of the features that make Protea Hotel Kruger Gate so special.

You are spot on with the room tips for those travelling with family. The chalets offer a great experience with privacy and all the amenities one needs.

We are thrilled you will be returning and hope you had a safe trip home.

As in real estate, it's location, location and location- in this case this hotel is at the right location- literally within site of a gate into Kruger National Park. The setting is really beautiful and the rooms are large, well equipped- perhaps the most outstanding feature is the shower with a jungle style shower head, something we appreciated after a day of safari. The restaurant and bar were quite good and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.

Dear rothmla

Your title says it all, reinforce by your firs line – location, location, location. The close proximity to the Paul Kruger Gate means we are on minutes away from the home to so much beauty.

We are only too happy to provide a comfortable bed, warm showers, delicious food and friendly STAFF after a long day on safari. I am thrilled that you enjoyed all of these aspects of the hotel.

I hope you had a safe trip back home and that you will visit us again soon.

Kind Regards

Recently stayed at this hotel at the edge of Kruger National Park. It is a wonderful setting, the facilities were very good, the food excellent, and the staff so helpful and friendly. It was just spollt by work going on with refurbishment of certain parts of the hotel. Would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms are in different blocks but try and get a room near the walk way to the restaurant and bar.

Dear angelastocks

I am always intrigued by the unique titles in TripAdvisor reviews and yours really is wonderful. It captures the essence of our location in the heart of the bushveld which is surrounded with such beauty and wildlife.

We are in the process of completing the renovations, which should be done by mid-2013. Thanks you for understanding and when you return they will be done.

It seems as though the majority of your trip was pleasant from the facilities to the food. I will mention your positive comments to the STAFF and congratulate them on their friendly and helpful service which they are offering.

I look forward to your return to experience even more at Protea Hotel Kruger Gate.

Kind Regards
