Dine out under the stars, surrounded by the vast African bush. Sit around a crackling fire in the boma, swapping safari stories and tales of the day’s adventures with your fellow guests. Head out on foot or on a game vehicle to explore the wilderness, seeking out the famous African Big 5. Shelter from the African sun in the comfort of your luxurious suite, or cool down from the heat of the day in the sparkling pool. All of this, and more, is what you can expect during a stay at Karongwe River Lodge.
This gorgeous lodge is found within the exclusive Karongwe Private Game Reserve, a 9000-hectare reserve found close to South Africa’s legendary Kruger National Park. Karongwe is a vast and pristine expanse of African bushveld, and is rich in biodiversity and natural beauty. The breathtaking Drakensberg Mountains make a beautiful backdrop to the reserve.
Besides the game drives and bush walks, there are a multitude of activities to choose from in the surrounding region. These include hot-air ballooning, the Panorama Route, God’s Window, and Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, to name a few. Karongwe is a family-friendly lodge, offering babysitting services and kids’ activities. It is also a beautiful destination for a romantic bush wedding or honeymoon.
