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. 

  • Swimming pool, deck and bar overlooking the Sabi River
  • 100 metres from Big Five game viewing in Kruger National Park

Very Average

Johannesburg, South Africa

Checked in to what I thought was a newly renovated room which was lovely. Lady at Reception was amazing and she checked me out this morning too 😊 What was disappointing and the same applied to my last stay there was the Food and Beverage side of things. Dinner was very average, sat at a table for 1 in the dark. Breakfast this morning, the service was as bad with even to one of the colleagues referring to them as pillars. And after that it took 3 requests to get a cup of coffee which was very weak. To top it all the kitchen was out of stock with mushrooms 🤦‍♂️

Consistently lovely

London, United Kingdom

We come back year after year for a few days to the Protea Kruger Gate. We love the hotel, the settings and the proximity to the Kruger Gate. The rooms are spacious, clean and the food is great. I don't do many reviews, but the reason I have given this one is I would like to compliment the front desk staff. They are always lovely, but our recent stay deserves mention. At the front desk the staff were approached by a rather unreasonable guest who was not prepared to follow normal protocol on checking in. Lucky, Relax, Charity, Emmaculate and the team handled the situation with respect, smiles and tried their best to help. Well done, Protea on your team.
