Luxury accomodation for the halaal market at Kruger

Leopard Sands River Lodge by BON Hotels is set to launch at the Kruger National Park in the latter part of 2019.

The lodge is located in a prime area of the Kruger National Park, overlooking the Sabi River and only minutes from the Kruger Gate entrance. It has 18 luxury units, all equipped with private plunge pools overlooking the river, which is home to hippos, crocodiles, and countless species of birds.

It also boasts an elevated, Halaal-certified restaurant that gives guests a unique view of the park.

‘There is an element of responsibility that we owe to the people of the Kruger National Park and surrounding areas. We chose this particular region because of our love for nature, hospitality and sustainable tourism, and cannot wait to welcome guests to experience the breathtaking scenes offered by the incredible Leopard Sands River Lodge by BON Hotels,’ says co-owner Safraaz Suliman.

The property was acquired by BON Hotels, a South-African based hotel company that manages and owns hotels, lodges and resorts throughout Southern Africa, as well as West and East Africa. The group’s CEO, Guy Stehlik, is excited that this latest development, one of three lodges in the Kruger Park area acquired by BON Hotels, represents a significant expansion for the group.

Together with the owners, BON Hotels believes that this will have a sustainable and positive effect on the region’s growth and tourism offerings. Stehlik is enthusiastic about the fact that this new lodge will help bring a greater variety of accommodation options to the park. ‘We are delighted to announce the opening of this new lodge. What makes it even more special is that it will be Halaal-certified and able to cater to Muslim travellers from around the globe.’
