Kuname River Lodge


... is located in the Karongwe Reserve in the Kruger Private Reserves area in the Northeast of South Africa.

+ excellent riverside location
+ large private reserve
+ important conservation project
+ full range of wildlife
+ small intimate lodge
+ highly professional owners
+ excellent staff service
+ possible to avoid visitor traffic
+ cheetah tracking on foot

Situated alongside the seasonal Makhutswi River to the south of the reserve, this rather stylish little lodge has elegant public areas leading out to pretty campfire and pool areas. Guest accommodation is in five pleasant guest chalets ranged along the riverbank.

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

- fenced reserve
- proximity to human habitation
- proximity to other accommodation
- 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.

Kuname River Lodge is far higher quality than its price implies, a really decent option which is able to deliver a pretty good safari experience.
