Elevating your Kruger safari experience with an easy room upgrade

We are hardwired to be budget-conscious, and there’s no doubt that this is generally a good thing. 

However, when it comes to travel, the knee-jerk reaction to just clicking on the lowest accommodation rate can stand in the way of completely fulfilling your dreams of a holiday of a lifetime.

For many of us, a Kruger safari is an exceptional travel experience. It’s not often that we get to venture deep into the African wilds to spend a few precious days immersed in nature in all its glory and encountering some of the most iconic wildlife on the planet. While your focus is going to be on the exciting game drives, it’s still important to fully consider the importance of your comfort and individual needs. This is, after all, a unique experience in your life’s journey, and that alone is inspiration enough to add an extra touch of luxury if you can.

Going on safari can be rigorous. Morning game drives in the Park mean rising before dawn, and all day and afternoon safaris can be hot and tiring. You want the accommodation that you return to be restful and restorative so that you can recharge and be ready for the next day’s adventures. But sometimes, having just a bit more space and a couple of extra amenities elevates your safari experience by a lot.
When it comes to luxury accommodation at the Kruger National Park, Kruger Gate Hotel’s range of Deluxe rooms set a high bar. However, you can also easily upgrade to a Kruger Luxury Room or a Kruger Suite without breaking the budget. Our stylish Kruger Luxury Rooms feature tasteful leather and wood finishes with artwork that celebrates the rich legacy of the Kruger National Park. You will get the best night’s sleep in a plush extra length King bed. The comfortable living area is ideal for relaxing on the couch to watch TV or to read a book from your private in-room library. Couples will especially enjoy the modern bathroom with twin basins, a walk-in shower and bathtub, as well as the separate toilet.

A suite is not out of the question

Your sense of personal space is important and for some, the appointment of their hotel room makes all the difference to their stay. Our Kruger Suites are set in the evocative riverine woodland of the Sabie River. They offer all luxury features as well as larger living rooms that flow out onto private, enclosed patios with stylish outdoor seating where you can enjoy morning coffee, sundowners, or a nightcap under the stars. The tastefully curated indoor and outdoor spaces of the Kruger Suites fully immerse you in the surroundings, enhancing your oneness with nature and enabling special sightings of birdlife and the gentle bushbuck that occasionally wander through the hotel gardens.

Your Kruger safari trip should be everything that you want it to be. So, it’s important to go further in your accommodation search than simply asking, “where to stay in Kruger National Park”. Think also about how you want to stay and explore the room upgrade options. Dialling up the luxury notch often costs less than you think, while making a notable difference to your special Kruger safari experience.
