Garonga Safari Camp is an exclusive 14 bed camp in the greater Makalali Conservancy situated west of the Kruger National Park.
This unassuming sanctuary promises a more intimate wildlife encounter in an unhurried environment – somewhere where you can unwind, sleep deeply and be yourself.
The wide variety of game at Garonga ensures that guests are pleasantly surprised at what they see, as well as how close the animals are when they are sighted.
There is plenty of interaction with the Guests when looking for game. Guests are encouraged to follow the tracking experience (almost as exciting as seeing the game) whether by vehicle or on foot.
We encourage our guests to interact with their environment as much as possible, taking a deeper understanding of wilderness away with them.African Accommodation
The accommodation at Garonga Safari Camp reflects the surroundings of the bush – textured earthy colours and clean lines have been incorporated with fine linen to ensure pure comfort, a tempting place to lie and meditate for hours
The Tented Rooms are situated on a dry riverbed – each with a wooden deck that commands spectacular views. The rooms are spacious, with large, draped beds. In addition to the indoor shower, there is an outdoor shower that flows outwards from the luxury of the room, providing a continuous link to nature.
The Hambleden Suite offers luxurious accommodation and privacy in exceptional surroundings. The Suite contains an ebony four-poster bed with an en-suite bathroom, which includes a hand-beaten copper bath and matching basins.
The Suite also has an outdoor shower, as well as a private pool and deck.
The food at Garonga Safari Camp is a fusion of the resident chef’s exceptional culinary skills and there is a varied selection of excellent South African wines. Activities
Garonga's holistic philosophy is to offer a safari for the soul, an unhurried and intimate wildlife encounter – a time to reflect and find inspiration in nature.
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.
Activities include game drives, wilderness walks, sleep-outs, outdoor bush-baths and aromatherapy and reflexology sessions. We encourage our guests to indulge in activities that will allow them to walk close to the animals, and thereby enhance their wildlife encounter.
Escape to our Sala, and feel invigorated and calmed by the Aromatherapy and Reflexology treatments we have on offer. Also offer Indian head massage, Hot Stone Therapy (Winter only), and Honeymoon Coupe Instructional massage.
Guests may sleep out on their own on a beautiful deck with stunning views overlooking the Veldt. A Sumtuous Picnic Hamper, a Drinks Box, and Hot drinks are left for them at the Deck.
They are left with a radio and will get collected in the morning. A Wash basin and Toilet close by are provided.
