“Karongwe River Lodge”

Our group of 6 friends visited the Karongwe Lodge for 2 nights (4 game drives) in November. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to first class service. Our accommodations were outstanding, the food was delicious and the service by staff was top notch. We can’t thank Cal enough for making our game drives an experience we will never forget. He was very knowledgeable and courteous and never tired of our endless questions. Chane also delivered outstanding customer service, always making sure we were happy and taken care of. We only wish we could have spent an extra few nights at this 5* Lodge. Thanks again for making our trip an experience we will always treasure!

“Loved it!”

I can’t recommend this lodge highly enough. Our room was a suite, which didn’t cost a lot more than the standard rooms, but was situated overlooking a waterhole which meant we were able to relax on our terrace and watch the wildlife come to us such as giraffes, zebra and monkeys. The service level was impressive and the food delicious. We loved the dinner around the fire and the breakfasts. The game drives were really well organised, our guide friendly and enthusiastic and we saw the big five plus and were able to linger and watch, so the drives were well paced. I would recommend staying here.

“Fabulous experience”

This was our first experience on a safari in Africa and it couldn’t have been better. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of Karongwe River Lodge. Our cabin/hut was beautiful, cozy and comfy and very private. the 3 meals a day, plus afternoon tea were delicious. Eating outdoors watching the animals during the meals was wonderful. But the best was the twice a day game drives while watching the sunrise and sunsets as we drove with our eyes always looking for animals. We saw everything but the elusive leopard and had some exciting close encounters with elephant herds. We lived it all!

“Our highlight in Southafrica”

The great service didn’t end: from the moment we were greeted at the Hoedspruit airport, at the lodge by the manager and led to our rooms to the service during the meals or at night when accompanied to our rooms. All the time the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
But all was topped by the game drives with our guide Cal and tracker Adolphe. They did more than usual to show us the Big Five and succeeded. What an experience! We learned so much about animals and plants. Thank you. It was just great.
