Garonga Safari Camp offers a relaxing and holistic experience in beautiful surroundings. The camp reflects the surroundings of the bush`s textured earthy colours and clean lines have been incorporated with fine linen to ensure pure comfort. This is truly a "Safari for the Soul".

Situated in the Greater Makalali Private Game Reserve (22 000 hectares) Garonga`s philosophy is to offer a distinct, unhurried and intimate wildlife encounter, allowing you the time to reflect and find inspiration in nature. This private nature reserve boasts the Big 5 which guests can experience up close on our exhilarating morning and afternoon game drives - the heart of the Garonga experience. You can either try your hand at every activity we have on offer, or you can do simply nothing at all, lazing in the hammock with a good book while watching the grazing impala.

Facilities on site include an outdoor swimming pool complete with a deck, loungers and a barbecue area, complimentary wireless internet, an indoor and covered outdoor lounge, self-service bar (most drinks are included in the rate), wine cellar, library, and curio shop.
