Karongwe Private Game Reserve
Offering a Choice of 4* and 5* Lodges
The Karongwe Private Game Reserve is an 8,500 hectare fenced private game reserve, just 45 minutes from the world-famous Kruger National Park.
Home to the Big 5 of the African bush (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant), morning and afternoon game drives with experienced rangers and trackers take guests on a voyage of discovery.
Guests may also see cheetah, spotted and brown hyena, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, kudu, impala and bushbuck to name a few of the many other 40 wildlife species to be found here. Hippo and crocodiles are often spotted along the river banks.
There are also over 365 different bird species.
The lodges in the reserve offer guests the opportunity to either relax in 4* or 5* luxury, or experience an authentic African safari under canvas. Inbetween game drives and bush walks, all the lodges have a pool where guests can relax around and soak up the African sun.
Settle in at your choice of one of 13 luxurious private suites - there are 7 Luxury suites for couples, 2 Family suites for up to 2 people, 2 Executive and 2 large Presidential suites. All suites are air conditioned, spacious and tastefully decorated, with en-suite bathrooms.
The 24 intimate air-conditioned en-suite rooms at Shiduli feature rich, earthly tones and aromatic timber. The huge romantic beds fitted with crisp white linen are swathed in flowing mosquito nets under the canopy of a thatch roof.
Chisomo Safari Camp features 22 safari tents, set in the African bushveld, under majestic apple leaf, jackalberry and tamboti trees. All tents, with en-suite bathrooms, are facing the beautiful Makhutswe River and wildlife can be viewed from the decks as it emerges from the reeds for grazing.
Accommodation at the lodge is in 5 private, comfortable suites, nestled in dense bush overlooking the majestic Drakensberg escarpment. The air-conditioned suites are decorated in an elegant African style, with each item of artwork having its own story.
