Two new major hotels are planned for South Africa in response to strong demand.
It is expected that the Radisson Blu Safari Resort Kruger Park will be open for business in 2013 and will be in the southern area of the Kruger National Park and close to the Crocodile River.
“This hotel will be the first internationally branded hotel within Kruger, and will clearly strengthen the Radisson Blu brand in South Africa”, explained Rezidor’s president and chief executive officer Kurt Ritter.
He added that the Park Inn Cape Town Foreshore will be fully operational by the end of 2011 and it could be ideal for those taking flights to South Africa as it is located in the centre of the Cape Town’s popular business district.
Last month, Rezidor announced plans to open the Radisson Blu Hotel in Dubai Downtown in May 2011.
