An oasis of luxury in the Bushveld playground

Set among the trees on the banks of the Sabi River, just 100 metres from  world-renowned 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.

Built with a treehouse-style concept, the hotel offers spacious rooms and thatched chalets connected by raised walkways through the tree canopy. The pool deck overlooks the river, providing a fantastic spot for game viewing in comfort with a chilled cocktail in your hand. 

In the evenings, you'll dine under the stars at the open air Lapa restaurant while enjoying traditional African entertainment – a wonderful way to end a memorable day.

Experience with the Protea Hotel by Marriott Kruger Gate

Vancouver, Canada

The hotel is in a fantastic location. The overall hotel equipment, like the gym, is a bit aged, so are the rooms. The food is good and the hotel has friendly personnel. One can see wildlife from the platforms or the gym, that's remarkable. Also, there are great conference facilities. What is pushing the rating to average is the booking service for tours/safaris. There is no hint on the hotel web site to safari booking. When we got in touch with the contact person for booking, we got a price list and one booking confirmation, but there was no tour description, so we booked a tour that did not go to the Kruger park. The information exchange with the reception/concierge does not really work, so it was difficult to get final info on the tours (pick-up time etc.). Overall the tour booking is not first class and should be improved.
