It is all about South Africa for The Rezidor Hotel Group this week: Following yesterday’s announcement of a new Park Inn hotel for Cape Town, Rezidor today announces the upper upscale Radisson Blu Safari Resort Kruger Park: The new built property featuring 120 rooms is scheduled to welcome the first guests in Q2 2013. The Radisson Blu Safari Resort Kruger Park will be located within the southern border of the Kruger National Park – along the famous Crocodile River 10 kilometres from the Malelane Gate. Besides 104 rooms and 16 suites with private terraces, the resort will offer an all day dining restaurant, a typical “Boma” (an outdoor dining and entertainment area), a cigar bar and a pool bar and terrace. For guests combining business and leisure, the Radisson Blu will have 5 conference rooms – leisure facilities will include 2 swimming pools, a spa- and wellness centre on 350 square meters, a gym, game viewing Crocodile River decks, a kids club and an environmental awareness centre.
Guests of the Radisson Blu Kruger Park Safari Resort will also be able to enjoy game viewing: Safaris will depart daily from the hotel to the main game viewing areas of the park. Kruger National Park is one of the 19 South African National Parks. It covers an area of almost 20,000 square kilometres and includes three different eco-zones (savannah, thornveld and woodland). It has more than 1,900 species of plants and 147 animal species – among them all the Big Five game animals: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino.
