Amazing views over the Sabie River with a constant array of wildlife, wooden elevated walkways around spectacular jackalberry trees, great food...the list goes on! Its our 4th time to Kruger Gate Hotel, even having gotten married there in February of this year because of its beauty and incredible food and service. We will be back!

What an amazing place this is! We didn't have any expectations beforehand, but totally wished we booked more nights as soon as we got there. If there's anything you could want...... it's available! Or they make it available to you (if possible). The pool has an amazing view, the food is fresh and super tasty! And the staff was super nice and friendly! Want to go back here for sure!

Friendly staff, fantastic food and a wonderful property. We had a full day safari and saw mating lions and a Leopard with her cub! We saw a herd of Elephant and Buffalo from the swimming pool while having cocktails! Cannot wait to return to this wonderful hotel.

What a wonderful experience we've had for our third visit this year. The new management team has made a huge difference, the friendly staff, improved food selections and overall just a lovely place to visit, excellent value for money. The new pizza oven addition is an absolute winner and do yourself a favour and order one for the road home. Thank you once again and see you soon.

The hotel is now known as kruger gate . It has undergone wonderful renovations of the Lapa, the bar area overlooking the kruger national park where you can enjoy your drink while watching elephants swimming in the sabie river below & listening to various birds chirping on the trees above. The gate(entrance)to the world renowned kruger park is less than 5 minutes. The property has a section for timeshares called burchell's to the left of the gate. This is ideal for families. .

We felt welcome and taken care of during every moment of our stay. Clean and beautiful room with comfy bed, aircon and good wifi. Delicious food with a large selection menu that is changing every day. Warm and cosy atmosphere completely infused with nature. The spa was a dream with my massage taking place in the tree house overlooking Kruger park. Shoutout to the following people that really made our trip extra special: Excite (Spa), Excellent, Shepherd and Experience (Lapa dinner), Pelon (restaurant breakfast). They were all so friendly and helpful. All staff were always professional and friendly. Right next to Paul Kruger gate so super easy to enter Kruger park early morning for a drive, come back for breakfast and re-enter the park after breakfast or later in the day. During loadshedding, the generator immediately went on and everything worked as normal. I cannot wait to return! My body and mind feels refreshed after staying at Kruger gate. Highly recommend anyone to stay here!

Kruger National Park, South Africa8 contributions2 helpful votes
Friendly service, excellent location and value. Rooms are very nice, all inclusive plan included a robust breakfast with a cook to order eggs or omelets station. Dinner buffet had several stations including stir-fry and pasta. There was variety of food at both breakfast and dinner. Guests have the option of skipping breakfast and opting for a bag lunch to take away for their game drive. Excellent game viewing deck at the pool bar overlooking the river. We saw herds of elephants, antelope and water buffaloes while enjoying a beverage. Location is just outside the gate and entry to the park was a breeze. If there was any downside it was with the bar mgmt. They were out of several items that we tried to order, Bacardi rum was one of them. They did make a special trip to get some so we were supplied after the first night.

It is a long drive from Gauteng, but worth every km as one enters the property of this hidden gem. This beautiful establishment, with breathtaking views is recommended for any type of event planned. Bring lots of sunscreen!

All was absolutely perfect and we highly recommend this hotel. The location is ideal (just a few meters from Kruger Park's gate). The buffets are amazing. The staff is very kind and professional. Design and decoration are just beautiful. The Spa is exceptional. There is a lot of activities to do (2 swimming pools, tennis courts, safaris etc.). All is done in this hotel for clients' wellness. One only regret : my stay was too short !...
