Garonga Safari Camp
Garonga Safari Camp is situated in the greater Makalali Conservancy situated west of the Kruger National Park. This unassuming sanctuary promises an intimate wildlife encounter in an unhurried environment where you can unwind, sleep deeply and be yourself.
The focus of the camp is relaxation and enjoying the African bush at your own pace. The sleep out deck offers a private and romantic location for those wishing to sleep under the stars and has proven a hit with honeymooning couples. The camp's sala also offers massages, reflexology, aromatherapy treatments and hot stone therapy. Garonga is the perfect place to kick back and unwind from the pace of modern life.
Garonga is an exclusive 12 bed camp.
The accommodation at Garonga Safari Camp reflects the surroundings of the bush's 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 overlooking a dry riverbed - each with a wooden deck complete with hammock that commands spectacular views. The rooms are light, airy and spacious with large, draped beds. In addition to the indoor shower, there is an outdoor shower, providing the perfect link between the luxury of the suite and the allure of Mother Nature.
Little Garonga has three fully en-suite, thatched and air-conditioned suites, all situated around centralized indoor/outdoor lounge areas, a swimming pool and built-in braai/BBQ area. Each suite has its own platform deck complete with hammock.
The Hambleden Suite (considered the main suite) has its own swimming pool, private indoor/outdoor lounge areas as well as its own two bed childrens room adjoining the main bedroom, which can be closed off if not required. The Chiltern Suite can be found 10m away, while the Buckingham Suite lies on the far side of the main lounge.
The thatched massage sala has bamboo blinds and is raised off the ground. The camp is north-facing which allows sunlight to stream in, and its prime location affords magnificent views over the reserve.
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 - making every meal at Garonga an unforgettable experience.
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 they have on offer, or you can simply do 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, aromatherapy and reflexology sessions. Also on offer are Indian head massage, Hot Stone Therapy (only in the winter), Honeymoon Couple Instructional massage and other treatments.
They encourage guests to indulge in activities that will allow them to walk close to the animals, thereby enhancing their wildlife encounter.
