Some 50km west of the Kruger National Park lies the well-appointed Karongwe Private Game Reserve, a study in unsurpassed extravagance where a series of luxurious accommodations are located in a game park for visitors to enjoy safaris from a refined base. The majestic Drakensberg Mountains add to the scenic splendour of the reserve which is home to the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo), African wild dog and cheetah.
The lodges in Karongwe offer a range of facilities, from a 5-star manor house to tented camps where no expense has been spared. Animals frequent the Makhutsi River that runs through the reserve, a prime game viewing spot.
Karongwe Game Reserve’s handpicked game rangers and Tsonga trackers are on hand to expertly guide visitors through the bush to experience nature at its very best. Renowned for leopard sightings, the reserve is small enough to guarantee a variety of game viewing.
