Summary Of The Route and Costs

Allow the African bush to rejuvenate your senses at this tranquil riverfront safari setting, after which you will head to a stunning beach lodge known as 'Blue River' in an untouched Mozambique paradise.

Spend your days at Karongwe River Lodge relaxing beside the pool or watching the game from your private deck before being whisked away on an early morning and late afternoon safari in an open game drive vehicle. The enchanting view over the Makhutsi River is a natural treasure providing insight into the secret river life.
