Located at the Paul Kruger Gate entrance to the Kruger National Park, the Protea Hotel by Marriott Kruger Gate is ideally situated on the banks of the Sabie River, set among peaceful woodland of African trees. The hotel’s convenient location for game drives within Kruger National Park is matched by its sympathetic décor and emphasis on outdoors living.
All guest rooms have en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning and free wi-fi, as well as the all-important comfortable bed to sink into after a day’s game spotting. A highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be game-viewing from the hotel’s stunning infinity pool; soak up the idyllic views over the Sabie River while watching herds of elephant, buffalo, lion and hyena. Indulge in some self-care at the beautifully appointed Spa and savour sumptuous dining beneath the starry skies accompanied by the crackle of wood fires in the outdoor Lapa; a traditional South African structure crafted from African hardwood poles and finished with a thatched roof.
Enjoy breakfast indoors or al fresco at Kudyela Restaurant, where you’ll be spoilt for choice by a selection of baked goods and fresh fruit, with hot options available for heartier appetites. Follow an adventure-packed morning with lunch at the Pool Bar on the banks of the Sabie River, with its uninterrupted views over Kruger National Park. Dinner at Lapa Restaurant is a splendid affair, with a range of local and international cuisine laid out under a canopy of stars, and there can be no finer way to round off a day at Kruger than by relaxing with a nightcap, with the sounds of an African night around you.
