Beautiful and paceful place! We stayed at the Royal Kruger Lodge at the end of a 3 tour weeks and we enjoyed our stay. The service is perfect, and we were very well welcomed. The english breakfast was also very good and the room beautiful!

Never before have I went through and looked at all the Guests photos in TripAdvisor, wow what an experience this was, one that I will never ever forget. It's only been 3 weeks and I miss RKL and Africa. When we arrived at the lodge, Felicity (lodge manager) took us on a tour of the place and personally showed us...

We had a wonderful time at Royal Kruger Lodge. From arrival until we left the staff couldn't do enough for us. The accommodation was clean and well laid out. The food was delightful. They were even able to cater for my gluten free diet. Would highly recommend Royal Kruger to anyone travelling to South Africa.

Rooms were lovely-but would prefer in-room shower, not the outside kind (although the 'animal' tree was interesting); and pillows were not great. Food was fantastic - thank you Julia and staff for the birthday cake and birthday song! Robert, the safari guide, could sight a lion at 3km - amazing vision. We appreciated access to tea and coffee in the...

Accommodation, Food and Organisation very good, with one exception. For international travelers, the lack of showers in each room was unusual and should be fixed pronto. We were lucky with our safari's and spotted all of the big five, however the lions proved the most elusive and only got distant views

The property/lodge is located in Marloth Park, which is approximately half an hours drive from the Kruger National Park, and shares a fence with them. The lodge itself is well laid out, with large clean rooms and genuinely...
