BON Hotels to open halal lodges in Greater Kruger

Bucker’s Africa lodge is one of three properties in the Greater Kruger Park area to be managed by BON Hotels, launching in October 2019.

Located near the Crocodile Bridge Gate, the luxury self-catering lodge will include 16 units with kitchenettes, bathrooms and air-conditioning, ranging from two- to four-sleepers. With Halal certification, it aims to welcome Muslim travellers and has been classified as ‘dry’ with no alcohol being sold on the property. However, guests can bring their preferred beverages for the duration of their stay.

The second lodge, Leopard Sands River Lodge by BON Hotels will launch in the latter part of 2019, situated minutes from the Kruger Gate entrance. It comprises 18 luxury units, all equipped with private plunge pools overlooking the river and an elevated restaurant with views of the Park.
