Garonga Safari Camp

Kruger area

Rating: Deluxe    

Garonga Safari Camp overview

Garonga Safari Camp is an exclusive 12 bed camp in the Greater Makalali Conservancy situated to the west of the Kruger National Park. The tented rooms overlook a dry riverbed and each has a wooden deck complete with hammock. The rooms are spacious and incorporate an ensuite shower as well as an outdoor shower.

Buffet breakfasts and lunches are generous and dinner can be enjoyed either communally or privately. Outdoors there's a boam are for al fresco meals, an infinity pool and a series of viewing decks with excellent views of the riverbed. The camp has a library, curio shop and a bush spa where you can indulge in a range of aromatherapy and reflexology treatments.

Activities include game drives, guided bush walks and bird watching. During your stay you can treat yourself to a soak in the bush bath on the raised deck, as you sip a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of the bush. For a more in-depth bush experience you can enjoy a sleep-out some 20 minutes drive from the camp. A sumptuous picnic, a drinks box and hot drinks are provided, as are as wash basin and toilet. In the morning guests are collected and taken back to camp.

Other activities available beyond the reserves, include horse riding, scenic helicopter rides and visiting Blyde River Canyon.

Using a clever biogas system & solar power for energy, and re-using filtered grey water to fill a waterhole for wildlife, Garonga tries hard to keep their impact minimal. They also produce organic vegetables on site.

Hannah Black, Tribes

"After a bumpy drive on an unmade road into camp, we arrived at the stunning Garonga. It has an elevated position overlooking a dry river bed and a small waterhole. This is a small, intimate tented camp, ideal for honeymooners as it's very romantic. Each tent has an indoor and outdoor shower and a fantastic hammock on the veranda in which to relax after your activity. There is the most amazing 'star bath' where you can bathe at night whilst star gazing. The vehicles they use on game drives are open topped and have both a spotter and a driver which is great, and their knowledge is excellent. As well as drives, they offer walks and sleepouts. The food is delicious! There is a 3 course set menu dinner with a choice of 2 mains. The staff were really attentive and there is a high level of attention to detail. The only slight downside I found was that the Makalali Reserve is fenced and we spent a lot of time game viewing close to the fence BUT we did see cheetah brothers come fact to face with a lioness which was amazing and completely made up for it. Overall, we loved it at Garonga and wished we could have stayed longer! It's the perfect place to begin your South African adventure."
