Experience the wonder of the African Bushveld with a visit to the Protea Hotel Kruger Gate. Located along the Sabie River, our rustic and elegant lodge provides all the comforts of home, yet is just 100 meters from the Paul Kruger Gate of Kruger National Park – offering unparalleled access to the area’s legendary natural beauty. Step under the indigenous portico and be transported to a different world – one reminiscent of a tree house, with elevated walkways nestled among native bird habitats.
You are collected in Johannesburg and transferred to Protea Hotel Kruger Gate where you will be staying for the next 4 nights.
You check-in to your rooms and have time to unpack and relax before we depart at 3 pm for an exhilarating safari drive. After the safari you return to the lodge where dinner will be served.
Our safari starts very early, before sunrise, to the Kruger National Park in specially fitted open vehicles. We enter through the Kruger Gate into one of the best wildlife areas of the KNP; here you will spend the day on a safari with your ranger and we will visit various water holes, look out points & rivers.
We have our breakfast, which was pre-packed by the resort, at a local rest camp/picnic venue and then continue our safari looking for the mighty Big 5, not missing out on over 100 mammal & 500 bird species – your ranger will ensure the very best experience. Your guide will stop at a local rest camp for lunch where there is a great menu, then we continue with our safari.
We return to the resort late afternoon (around 4 pm) after a great day on safari. You can then relax and even jump into the swimming pool before we have dinner at the lodge. But be sure to get in bed early, as you will have to get up early as well for another great safari the next day.
Today we awake slightly later and, after a hearty breakfast at the lodge, we make our way in an air-conditioned closed vehicle towards the Picturesque Mpumalanga Highveld.
We will visit the world’s third largest canyon – the Blyde River Canyon – as well as the Three Rondavels and small town called Graskop, where we will have lunch and do some souvenir shopping. We also visit Bourke’s Luck Potholes, found in the Blade River and surrounding water falls like Lisbon and Mac Mac falls. It is means to be a relaxed day.
We return in the afternoon for some leisure time, a swim, and time to rest after the past few exciting days. We have dinner and get to bed before the next day’s early morning safari and transfer back home.
Our last day we depart again on another safari into the KNP. This is a shorter 4-hour safari, yet it will be within the best possible area in the Park.We will depart the resort with your Luggage and after the safari you are taken to the shuttle bus for your transfer back to any hotel close to the O.R. Tambo International Airport or any Sandton Hotel.
