Karongwe River Lodge enjoys a lovely position on the banks of the Makhutswi River. There are 5 luxury suites ideal for couples, 2 lovely family suites, 2 executive suites and 2 opulent presidential suites with private plunge pools. The spacious thatched, wooden suites have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms with a Victorian Slipper Bath and shower as well as a private deck with chairs for guest‘s viewing pleasure.
The main lodge boasts one of the best views of any game lodge with enchanting views over the Makhutswi River. Here you can enjoy the spacious lounge, library and bar areas which lead onto a vast deck, where you can chill in hammock chairs and enjoy for endless opportunities to view grazing antelope or bigger game like hippo or elephant. Between game drives in the heat of the day, this is the perfect spot to spend the afternoon relaxing while enjoying an ice cold drink, or alternatively head to the pool which in turn overlooks a dam where loads of animals form a near constant procession (or take a peek around the curio shop if you can’t escape the lure of retail therapy!)
At Karongwe River Lodge guests will enjoy Pan African feasts in a rustic outside boma or in the magnificent dining room. Meals are enjoyed in the dining room, on the open-air deck or alternatively, under the stars in a rustic outside boma around a blazing fire – ultimately it all adds up to a truly atmospheric bush experience!
Spend the afternoon relaxing beside the pool or watching the game from your private deck before being whisked away on a late afternoon safari in an open game drive vehicle.
Wildlife at the Karongwe Game Reserve, Limpopo Province, is abundant. Many animal species can be encountered during the thrilling game drives or adventurous walking safaris such as elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, buffaloes, wild dogs, cheetahs, spotted and brown hyenas, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, kudus, bushbucks, steenboks, duikers, impalas, waterbucks, black-backed and side-striped jackals, honey badgers, baboons, vervet monkeys, mongooses, warthogs, bush pigs and tortoise.
