- Kruger National Park
Virgin Holidays' view
Occupying the most enviable location, overlooking the Kruger National Park, the Protea Kruger Gate by Marriott offers guests a traditional lodge feel with all the comforts of a hotel. When you are not on safari you can spend your days lazing by the pool or enjoying spotting wildlife from the bar which offers a unique deck and treehouses overlooking the National Park.
Day 1: Arrive Kruger
Upon arrival into Kruger's Skukuza airport, you will be met and transferred for your four night stay to the Protea by Marriott Kruger Gate (approximately 20 minutes). Transfers from Kruger Mpumalanga (KMIA) airport can be added at a supplement (approximately 90 minutes). (D)
Days 2-3: Kruger National Park Safari
Experience the legendary Kruger National Park, home to the magnificent 'Big Five' animals of the world, and a host of others besides... 147 species of mammal, and over 500 bird species. On both days you will enjoy morning and evening game-drives in open safari vehicles, to enhance your game viewing and to provide the finest, unimpeded vantage points for photography and bird watching. There's little between you and your subject! Our qualified experienced guides will undoubtedly enhance the experience by their deep understanding of the bush and the movement and identification of animals and birds, something they will impart to you. You'll not only relish the experience of being in the Kruger environment, but you'll leave with gems of info you'd never have known before. (B/D)

Pre/Post tour options
We recommend adding this safari after a trip to Cape Town or the Garden Route. The lodge is only 20 minutess from Skukuza so we recommend flying into and out of this airport which is actually in the national park. Transfers to Kruger Mpumalanga Airport can also be added at a supplement but this is a longer transfer.
