Making the most of its perfect location in the Greater Kruger Conservancy, right at the Paul Kruger Gate and on the banks of the iconic Sabie River, the Protea Hotel by Marriott Kruger Gate has revealed a complete rebuild and upgrade of its amenities following an investment of R 100 Million. Beloved by generations of South Africans, and on the bucket-list of international travelers, the Kruger National Park is South Africa’s top attraction, world-renowned for its spectacular natural landscapes and exhilarating Big 5 game viewing.
Set in beautiful riverine woodland with immense African trees and rich birdlife all around, this lodge-style hotel is now expanded and enhanced to deliver an upmarket Kruger experience rich in South African hospitality. Visitors want choices, and one of the best options is to experience an authentic Kruger safari with all the comforts of an upmarket hotel.
Soaring wooden walkways and elevated decks radiate from the open-sided reception area, creating the hotel’s special treetop ambiance. New features include a specialty coffee shop where guests can meet and relax while enjoying an excellent espresso or cappuccino. There’s a convenient all-day choice of cakes, muffins, sandwiches, and quiches so that you can grab-and-go as you gather to set off on safari into one of Africa’s greatest wilderness destinations.
