A real African Experience that is so affordable
My knowledge of this property goes right back to 1987 when we bought time share at this location, and the original Karos Kruger Hotel was pretty basic. After an absence of many years we booked to stay at the now Kruger Gate and one of the new bedroom suites. From check in to our room, to drinks over looking the Kruger Park to dinner to breakfast - in a word. Excellent and the staff are superb. Having stayed in the past at a number of private game lodges in the Sabi Sands area most are outstanding but can cost anything up to $1000 per night per person. The Kruger Gate Hotel offers exceptional value and a great bush experience at a fraction of the cost of private lodges. And they can arrange daily and night drives in the Kruger. I would highly recommend fly in or drive to the Kruger - stay in the hotel and enjoy daily self drives in the Kruger A wonderful way to experience the bush, and African food and hospitality at a really affordably rate

This hotel is amazing! We wish we had more time here. Fortune was our safari guide and he did a great job! The updated hotel room was so nice. And we loved the atmosphere of the grounds of the hotel. It kind of feels like you’re in a tree house. Great food. Great time. Friendly staff! We hope to be back.

It’s beautiful and sophisticated. Enjoy your stay. The only slightly lacking amenity is the game drive. I’ve had more informative and more interactive leaders. And, though one cannot rely on the bush to deliver, some company’s find animals more readily. Experience or luck? I cannot say.
