It's like a dream, it's relaxing, great food, great people, beautiful animals, great experience ... we couldn't expect more from doing a relaxing safari.

If you want to do safari, see a lot of wild South African animals, have great food, be in the wilderness and the same time have all luxury amenities, I can just highly recommend Garonga Safari camp. It's definitely worth the money!

The best kept secret just outside of Kruger. This camp has just been revamped and looks great!

Super friendly staff and hosts who made our safari and stay as memorable as possible. Honestly - whoever wants to brunch together with Elephants in the morning - just book your stay here.

Super spacious tents with STUNNING views over the dry river bed. If you stay at little Garonga you might not have a perfect view over the river bed but instead you will have a massive suite all to yourself as well as a private chef and butlers. True 5 star service levels!!

Garonga is overwhelmingly beautiful. The accommodation is spa-like elegance with every attention to detail. The resort is small so the service is personalized. The staff and guides/trackers ensure all your needs are met.

The exclusive (but far from snooty :)) atmosphere gives you the opportunity to meet and share meals with the other guests if you choose but offers privacy if preferred. Ask to book the bush bath and treehouse sleep out. Both are included. We would return in a heartbeat.

We were lucky enough to get married here recently and what a place it is. I must say Garonga and it's wonderful team far surpassed any expectations I had. I cannot put in to words how truly wonderful this place is.

Our wedding day was amazing, the people we met were fantastic, the food is just great, and the animals....well I couldn't have ever imagined watching a leopard eating it's dinner up a tree!

Special thanks to our team Josia and Richard, what a great couple of guys and so funny. Bernie went out of his way for us and all the other staff thank you!

We had an absolutely fantastic time during our stay in the stunning Hambleden Suite at Little Garonga. We had our own pool on our deck which overlooked a watering hole, and every detail had been considered in our rooms - even down to our favourite drinks!

Robert & Heffric were so friendly in looking after our every need, and provided superb food. The game drives with Lodrick and Anton were amazing. We were lucky enough to drive alongside a herd of 40 elephants, watch baby hyenas playing, see lions, giraffe, zebra, hippos and cheetahs. Our girls (9 & 10) loved every minute, as did we.

Do the bush sleep out if you get a chance - we were worried it would be chilly (it wasn't) and the feeling of peace being alone in the Bush will be hard to beat. Thank you to the whole team for making it an experience of a lifetime - we hope to return!

Three of us stayed at Garonga for 3 nights in two 'tents'. Tents is not really accurate - they are luxury rooms with a canvas roof. It is a mesmerising place. We were waited on hand and foot by dedicated and enthusiastic staff. The food was really excellent and the service was absolutely exceptional. The views from the 'tents' the veranda and the pool are just incredible.

We had a fantastic driver and tracker (Josia and Richard) whose enthusiasm for finding the animals never waned. They entertained and looked after us with immense care and humour. We had a fabulous time. The whole place was an amazing experience.

Stayed January 2016, travelled with friends
