Edeni Private and Karongwe Game Reserves
The Drakensburg escarpment's deep pockets play host to a multitude of stunning panoramic views, herds of wandering indigenous animals, and the impressive Edeni Private Game Reserve - 21 000 acres of lush, ungroomed vegetation, and teeming throngs of habituated wildlife, all of whom hunt, play, and interact with each other regardless of the curious eyes of safari travelers and guides. Here, in the Lowveld, running along the banks of the flowing Makhutswi River, Edeni Private Game Reserve makes its home around a gorgeous local oasis, and the animals which regularly flock to it.
Karongwe Private Game Reserve is a thoroughly considered wildlife sanctuary, tailored toward balancing out the area's divergent and numerous ecosystems - with a gigantic draw on various local resources and wildlife communities, the reserve sits squarely in the midst of a small 8 500 hectare section of the lowveld. Comfortable and well appointed luxury accommodation
is bolstered by friendly and professional staff, and breathtaking panoramic views.
