We like that fact that the Pestana Kruger is only 150 metres from the Kruger Park Malelane gate which means that guests can still watch wildlife saunter past their rooms down to the Crocodile River while they sip cocktails and dine on true South African cuisine in the Buhlebethu Restaurant.
The a la Carte menu promises your tastebuds pleasant surprises as you choose venison dinners and warming stews for lunch. Enjoy the two sparkling blue swimming pools and the pampering Thulani Health spa for rejuvenating body massages and other therapies. This will relax you in between your drives into the Kruger National Park to find elephants, lions, leopard, buffalo and rhino. This renowned wildlife facility has more than 2 000km of roads and six rivers all providing water and shelter to a huge diversity of animals and plants.

This is definitely the place to take your whole family – the 30 family rooms are large, with garden views, king size beds, sleeper couches, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bars and bathtubs. The kids will love going into the Boma with you at night when the stars are shining in the dark sky and you get to eat campfire style around the roaring bonfire.
