The latest addition to the renowned Karongwe Portfolio, Becks Safari Lodge offers an unparalleled safari experience, with lavish accommodation, dedicated staff and plenty of opportunities for game-viewing.

Set in the Karongwe Private Game Reserve — in Limpopo Province — and overlooking the Makhutswi riverbed, this intimate Lodge offers eight safari suites bordering the river, as well as two family or couple suites looking onto a popular animal waterhole. The 21,000-acre game reserve is a vast, untamed wildlife sanctuary, home to a fantastic range of plants, birds and animals, including the iconic Big Five.

At Becks Safari Lodge, visitors can relax in an intimate, homely atmosphere, combining luxury living with a deep appreciation for South Africa’s natural terrains. Each air-conditioned safari suite offers modern luxury, and the interior design scheme incorporates both contemporary visuals and elements from nature. Visitors can take part in a host of activities: qualified rangers offer dawn and dusk game drives in open vehicles, while guests wanting to embark on a more active day out can opt to join a walking safari.

The picturesque setting can be enjoyed from all angles, with private decks attached to each suite, a large main lodge deck and a sunken firepit all offering excellent game-viewing opportunities. A display wall — decorated with paintings by local artists — impresses upon visitors the beauty of the culture that surrounds them.

As well as connecting with the African bushveld, guests can relax and unwind on site. After a day’s safari, the TheraNaka spa offers a menu of rejuvenating, high-end treatments and features a large, cooling infinity pool. And for those chillier winter nights, a roaring fire offers the perfect place to sit and chat with fellow guests, glass of wine in hand.

Newly opened in April 2017, Becks Safari Lodge welcomes guests over the age of 12.
