+ full range of wildlife
+ modern sleek design
+ small intimate lodge
+ highly professional owners
+ excellent staff service
+ great pool area
+ possible to avoid visitor traffic

Situated alongside a seasonal stream to the north of the reserve, this elegant lodge has well-appointed public areas and open grounds including a swimming pool. Guest accommodation is in eleven large cabins.

Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari within the reserve.

- fenced reserve
- proximity to human habitation
- proximity to surrounding lodges
- rather large impersonal lodge
- only accessible from the main R40 road
- reclaimed farmland
- not particularly wild
- reasonably expensive
- high visitor traffic
- no private vehicle

On the downside, this is a fenced reserve and right on the western periphery of the Kruger area, which some guests may find subtracts somewhat from the sense of wilderness.

Karongwe River Lodge is a really decent facility which is able to deliver a pretty good safari experience despite.
