About Protea Hotel Kruger Gate

On the banks of the Sabie River, and situated only 100 meters from the Kruger Gate of the Kruger National Park, the Protea Hotel Kruger Gate provides guests with the ideal situation from which to experience Africa first-hand. Truly the gateway to Nature, the lodge offers arranged game drives through the Kruger National Park, along with open vehicle safaris and organized game trails.


As much of the natural bush has been left in the grounds, and a veranda reminiscent of a tree house takes the guests to bedrooms echoing with the sounds of the night. Each of the 96 luxury air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms will make you feel part of the bushveld environment. The rooms consist of standard 4 star facilities including DSTV, tea/coffee making facilities, aircon, and hairdryer.

Protea Hotel Kruger Gate has 7 six-sleeper fully equipped self catering chalets located in the hotels’ private reserve. Each chalet is fully serviced and has two luxury ensuite bedrooms, one upper - loft bedroom, a spacious lounge area, DSTV, self-contained kitchen, and private outdoor braai area.

The chalets are in close proximity to the hotel’s restaurants. Bushveld dining offers a buffet style breakfast in the Kudyela Restaurant whilst an a’la carte lunch is served on the hotel’s unique wooden sundeck. Dine under diamond bright stars at the open air Lapa restaurant, and sample the sumptuous array of buffet dishes including potjies of fragrant delicacies.
