We stayed here for 2 nights so we can take full advantage of Kruger National Park- where its less than a 3 minute drive to the gates. My boyfriend, brother and I absolutely loved Protea Kruger and this was probably our favorite hotel during our South Africa trip. The entire lodge is beautiful, especially the reception area with the central sitting area and the high ceilings. The rooms are clean, luxurious, and spacious with modern appliances and a mix of African and modern decor. Great food where they offered a variety of the African game meats such as kudu and wildebeest. Staff here is also very friendly.
My only suggestion for improvement is that they need to add a self-serve egg dish along with the breakfast buffet. The only place you can get eggs is their egg station where you can order, but when there's a lot of people (especially when you're with a tour group) there ends up being a huge line.
