LA KRUGER LIFESTYLE LODGE is an architectural designed development proudly put on offer by its owners, especially for the discerning guest to enjoy a unique lifestyle experience in the African bush. Situated in Marloth Park, a safari wildlife sanctuary, bordering the Kruger National Park in South Africa , close to the N4 between Malelane & Komatipoort, a stone throw away from the Mozambique - & Swaziland border. The Lodge is literally tucked away in the most beautiful bushveld of southern Kruger National Park region, which forms the backdrop to a spectacle of sounds, smells and sightings. Decks are built around the existing Marula tree and other bushveld trees, creating a centre stage for joining our luxury bush chalets by elevated walkways for your convenience. With the natural sounds and scents of the bush, guests are quickly transported to a surreal feeling far away from everyday routine and responsibilities. In this wonderful setting where zebra, giraffe, kudu, impala, blue wildebeest, bush buck and warthog welcome you. Bird watchers are treated to endemic birds of all sizes and an orchestra of bird calls. After a day in the Kruger National Park guests can relax and enjoy the stunning sunset, while enjoying your favourite cocktail next to the infinity splash pools or you can take an outside shower under the African sky to cool you down, while you can listen to the mighty roar of a lion in the distance or the crazy laugh of the hyena. The luxurious interior design of La Kruger Lifestyle Lodge offers comfort away from home while you are pampered and spoilt by friendly and helpful staff. Private en-suite bathrooms allow you to freshen up in the privacy of your chalet or room. After the spectacular sunset a delectable three course dinner will be served, as the end to an award winning day in Africa at a boma fire under the Marula tree. The wonderful sights and experiences you had will replay in your mind’s eye and will be bookmarked as an unforgettable visit to La Kruger Lifestyle Lodge.

Absolutely loved my stay at the lodge. The staff were extremely friendly and always accommodating of my dietary and dining preferences. The lodge is situated in Marloth Park which is a short distance to Kruger so the location is quite ideal. I truly appreciated the room upgrade and enjoyed having my meals and wine on the private terrace. The stay gave me a good idea of what I would have otherwise missed out on and I will most certainly book the chalet when i next return to Kruger. Thank you for a most memorable stay in the bush!

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed here for a few nights as part of our visit to Kruger (nearest entry gate is Crocodile Bridge). Lovely, quaint little hotel with friendly and attentive staff, excellent quality food and good quality rooms. The hot water did go out at times while showering (hot water flow would cease and then restart 15-30 seconds later). Not sure why this was... The WiFi was difficult to use as it was going out constantly after the first day we were there. That said, we weren't there for the WiFi. The proximity to the park is great (20-30 minutes) and because you are outside the park you don't pay the exorbitant prices that those who stay inside the park do. Would *absolutely* stay here again.

Staying at La Kruger Lifestyle Lodge was truly an amazing experience. From arriving until we left we had nothing by exceptional service. I can’t thank Laura, Sabelo and Knowledge and the other team members enough, an absolute wonderful team. They catered to all our needs, kept us on schedule with our excursions and meal times. As for the accommodation, the lodge is fantastic, you have two pools you can cool off, our bungalow had an outdoor shower also - love this! Towels are provided - bath and swimming towels. They also have a very good system that protects you from the Loadshedding that occurs. Few things to think about when staying there: - Safari - You are up early!! This is no joke, be prepared to be up early, the morning game drive means you are up at 3:30 and out the door at 4am SHARP! Mornings and evenings are the cooler times and this means the animals are more active. - Gratuity- make sure you have enough physical cash to provide gratuities. It is best to do it as you go as the schedule means you don’t always see the same personal. So always show your appreciation when you can. - Water, drink lots of it, they have an awesome minibar in each room. The prices are exactly the same as having it at the pool or at dinner, so it is really nice to know you are not being overcharged for taking something out of your fridge. - Food - if you have no dietary requirements then sit back and relax. Every meal was amazing and the portions will leave you more than satisfied - Breakfast is fantastic, you have options from a full breakfast, cereals, yogurt and cold meats. Lastly - sit back and enjoy, take in all the sights and experiences. Remember this is a natural environment where you get to see the animals in their environment, be respectful, listen to what you are told. Everything these people do they do for the Park and to animals in it. Africa will always be a part of me!

This has been one of the best stays on my worldtrip! The Staff really cares for every Single visitor. I am really happy to Met all of them! Special thanks to Jaques who really made Quote the effort the day I was leaving to make sure I will be safe driving solo to my Next hotel. Also loved the fact that you were able to see wild life the minute you step one foot off the lodge area. Recommend 100%! Just make sure to Drive with a 4WD!

I have four basic requirements from a hotel: clean linen, good coffee, hot water, and reliable internet. This one had clean linen. Very grand rooms with a musty smell. Toilet seat paint was flaking off. Showers were tepid, and so was the coffee: bland and tasteless unless you ordered a cappuccino at exorbitantly prices. Internet unreliable, which made booking Kruger drives a nightmare. Menu pretentious, food boring. Staff were amazing. Laura works her butt off and is always pleasant. Jacques super helpful. But in the end it was a below average lodge experience wrapped up in a very pretentious package

Good morning Andries, Thank you for your valued review received and recent support. Unfortunately non of your complaints were raised with management during your stay and thus could not be addressed. We do find that it is your very "personal" opinion regarding our complimentary standard filter coffee (which is locally sourced from Mpumalanga) and our menu which have excellent reviews on this platform. As you stated, we do have a specialized "coffee bar menu" available for the more avid caffeine traveler. We do apologise for the connectivity issue you may have had, especially as we are currently experiencing high volumes of loadshedding which makes it a challenge for our establishment. I did personally assist you in booking your night drive and tutored you on navigating the SANPark's website, ensuring that you received the best possible service. Wishing you many more adventures in your travels.

Our stay at LA Kruger was amazing from the second we met our driver at the airport all the way to the last minute. The whole staff was professional and dedicated to making our stay a memorable one. Dinners are very tasty, and the rooms are very spacious. I am very grateful to Jacques Delport and his team for facilitating so many excursions, and for the high professionalism they displayed throughout this pandemic, which was hard on everyone. The swimming pools were a nice fresh spot after hot day excursions, but the best part about LA Kruger is definitely the huge terrace on the canpy: watching the sun rise from tree top level was magical! There was only one negative thing: having to leave such a magical place. Not sure we will be able to come back to South Africa soon, but if we do, we will definitely return to LA Kruger!

The hotel has a lot of charm surrounded by nature and also animals (zebras!). The room is spacious and comfortable, with a large terrace where we had dinner. There is a feeling of privacy with respect to the other rooms. Its owner was very kind to us, helping us with recommendations and suggestions. Our stay was perfect. Highly recommended!

Coming from a hospitality background, I was disappointed with the feedback I received from the manger (Jacques) on two occasions Our first night, it was raining at the lodge and dinner time came. We called in to ask if we could have dinner in our room as we had a 9 month old baby and wanted to avoid him getting sick. This request was not accepted with a reason that he was under staffed. Under staffed at our expense? we paid full price, why must we as guests be compromised? we got to the room after dinner to turn on the Aircon to heat. We were unable to find the heating option. We called reception and Jacques advise that their aircons do not have a heating facility. But why was it that on Bookings.com it specified "Aircon" in the rooms, instead if "Cooling facility". this can be misleading The next day Jacques said he will try to get us a heater. By late afternoon, we sent him a message asking if he managed to find a heater. He did not respond. Pushing us to go out and source a heater, spending money in order to warm up the room for our baby The next morning Jacques said he was not able to find a heater. Which is funny because we were able to and we are not from the area. He just refused to go the extra mile for his guests yet he falsely advertised "Air conditioning" Facilities We have travelled to many places around the world and we have never stumbled across an air con that only pushes out cold air and not hot. When it states "Aircon" it is both hot and cold We did not appreciate the attitude by the face of LA Kruger where he was just inflexible to accommodate any requests Wifi is also an issue. Yes " Free wifi" What is the point if it does not work?

Good day Paul, Thank you for your valued feedback and review received. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay besides the "disppontments" raised from your personal opinion which I will address below as it seems that they may mislead future patrons who wish to stay at our establishment. Your request to have dinner in your room was politely declined being explained to you as follows. Upon receiving your request, it was heavily raining which provides a very high risk factor from a health and safety perspective for our staff members who would be expected to carry sharp objects (knives, forks, glasses etc.) on a slippery deck to fulfill your request. The decision was based purely on the above information which we deemed very reasonable. We did however escort you under an umbrella to our dining room for a delicious three course dinner. A 25% discount on your reservation was also provided prior to your arrival when you made the enquiry to stay at our establishment. In regards to the "air conditioner", it is defined in wikipedia as: Air conditioning, often abbreviated as A/C or AC, is the process of removing heat and controlling the humidity of air in an enclosed space to achieve a more comfortable interior environment by use of powered "air conditioners" or a variety of other methods, including passive cooling and ventilative cooling. Our units are strategically installed to cool, however they can be adjusted to provided "warm air" upto 32'C. We in no way expressley advertise any heating facilities. In an attempt to assist you, we did try to source a heater for your stay to no avail from family and friends in the area. Once liaised that we could not find one, you proceeded to purchase a heater on your own accord and informed us thus. Unfortunately you did not liaise with us that your wifi connection was an issue and thus this could not be resolved. Wishing you many more warm and joyful experiences. Sincerely, Jacques
