New Roar in South Africa: Radisson Unveils First Safari Hotel

New Roar in South Africa - Radisson Unveils First Safari Hotel

Radisson Hotel Group has announced the much-anticipated official opening of Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit, its first safari hotel in Africa and 11th hotel in South Africa.

Tucked between two renowned nature reserves, Kruger National Park and Blyde River Canyon, the hotel is 2km outside Hoedspruit in the heart of the grasslands in the Limpopo province and just 20 minutes from Eastgate Airport.

“The opening of Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit completes our own Golden Triangle safari offering with exquisite properties in Cape Town and the recently opened Radisson Blu Resort Mosi-oa-Tunya in Livingstone,” said Tim Cordon, Chief Operating Officer for the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia Pacific at Radisson Hotel Group.

“Our extensive offering will ensure guests have an unforgettable experience whether they are enjoying a family holiday, a serene couples escape, or a meeting and event in a unique backdrop,” said Charles McCarthy, GM of Radisson Hotel Safari Hoedspruit.

The hotel offers views of the Drakensberg mountains, the highest mountain range in southern Africa. Guests can take part in safari adventures to spot local wildlife such as lions, rhinoceros, and elephants, go trekking on horseback, or take in the landscape from a hot air balloon.

The hotel’s 138 rooms range from standard rooms with garden and mountain views to Premium Suites featuring their own private pools and outdoor seating areas.

At the thatched roof restaurant, Mirage, guests can enjoy South African and Lebanese-inspired cuisine on the restaurant’s wrap-around deck, with access to a sunbathing area and pool in the summer, as well as an outdoor fireplace on cooler evenings.

Pegasus restaurant offers Mediterranean, Italian, Mexican, and American-inspired dishes as well as gourmet ice cream and frozen cocktails, served alongside the adults-only swimming pool.

At the Boma, guests can indulge in traditional African cuisine such as boerewors, bobotie, and selection of game meat.

The meetings and events spaces consist of five different meeting venues, including boardrooms, meeting rooms, and a main banquet hall that can accommodate up to 200 guests.

The on-site Amani Spa offers a variety of treatments at its five treatment rooms, including a private couples’ suite. The spa also features a health bar, hair and nail salon and a steam room. A 24-hour fitness centre is also available.
