Karongwe Game Reserve - an untamed garden of eden where the spoor of wildlife invites you to explore the timeless beauty of the bush; where an oasis of unimaginable luxury provides the greatest vantage point to the Big Five and its vast, untouched wilderness.
This 21 000 acre wildlife paradise is straddled between four rivers and is located just 45 minutes from the world famous Kruger National Park. Karongwe teems with an abundance of game, birdlife and diverse dense vegetation which provides the perfect habitat for the most secretive of Africa`s large cats, the leopard.
It is the perfect place to get away from the demands of city life.
The truly luxurious River Lodge is set upon the fertile bank of the Makhutswi River and offers the comfort of 5 star accommodation. A private watering hole that is home to many hippo and crocodile can be enjoyed from any of the 13 exclusive suites.
