About Us

Kruger Park Hostel has taken comfortable, safe and yet affordable accommodation to the next level and has added the element of meeting fellow travellers and creating unforgettable memories. Young and young-at-heart Globetrotters not only enjoy the experience of a lifetime through encounters with the Fauna & Flora here, but also an opportunity to learn about how an ecosystem such as the one created here, which requires constant measurements of the interactions between man and beast, can be sustained.

About us
“This place is brand new! It’s so clean and perfect. From the moment I arrived the owner and manager made sure I had everything I needed. I was also greeted by a warthog who frequently visits their garden. Endless activities kept me entertained the whole time I was there. We went go-karting, went on safari, took a tour of the Panarama route, watched the sunset over the Kruger National Park, played mini-golf, and ended each day with a home-cooked meal. The hostel has a bar with beer, cocktails, and wine, at a price that can’t be beat by any of the restaurants in the area. My trip was epic because of Kruger Park Hostel. I can’t wait to visit again.”

“I had an unforgettable time at Kruger Park Hostel. Devon and Rene, who run the hostel, are super friendly, always up for a joke and happy to answer any questions. They also offer trips to the Panorama Route and great safaris. Highly recommended. The hostel is very nicely furnished, clean and beautifully situated in nature. Sometimes warthogs, bushbucks, zebras, kudus or even giraffes come by to say hello, a great experience to get close to animals. There are also many board games you can play. What you also shouldn't miss is the homemade dinner, always very tasty. There is also a shuttle service that takes you directly to the hostel from OR Tambo airport. If you want to visit the Kruger National Park, you should definitely stop by the Kruger Park hostel. I can only recommend it to everyone.
(Also a good place to go as a female solo traveller).”

“My stay at the Kruger Park Hostel was absolutely amazing (even as a solo female traveller)! During my stay, I was the only guest but luckily the guys (Devon and Renee) made me feel like I was hanging out with fellow backpackers! I only stayed for 2 nights but I wished I could have stayed longer. The bedroom is clean and the showers amazing. If you choose to lay in the lowest bed you can even enjoy some stargazing. Every day Reggie (warthog) comes and you can feed and cuddle him. You also have the option to go on a safari with Devon and he will tell you everything about the animals! In the evenings you can enjoy some pool, chill on the terrace/pool or enjoy a sunset to spot giraffes or a water buffalo. If you're lucky, the zebras even come to visit you at the hostel.
Over all, this hostel is the best choice (and also the most budget friendly) if you want to visit the Kruger Park.”

“Os hosts são muito boas pessoas, nos receberam como amigos de longa data. Tivemos a oportunidade de partilhar a nossa estadia com a "Sheri". Nos divertimos muito. Ambiente muito bom, contacto com a natureza e animais. Conhecemos um javali de perto e podemos lhe tocar e alimentar com ração própria. Iremos voltar mais vezes.

In English: The hosts are very good people, welcomed us as longtime friends. We had the opportunity to share our stay with Sheri. We had a great time. Very good environment, contact with nature and animals. We met a boar up close and could touch him and feed him with his own feed. We will be back more often.”

“The hosts , Rene and Devon, are really kind, lovely, friendly, making sure I am OK. They are also very friendly to the animals around also, I had a chance to see many animals even before the Kruger Park. They cook dinner, one night I had a chance to try Braai, it was so delicious. Here is a small but lovely, comfortable and relaxing pool. Devon took me to a safari at the Park, gave me a lot information about the animals we saw and some important trees. I strongly suggest this place. Rene and Devon you are great!”
