Garonga on TripAdvisor

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!!

Totally "in awe" with the newly revamped Garonga!

Luxurious tented rooms, spacious both inside and outside - what beautiful decks. Amazing bathrooms and oh the outdoor shower.
The staff are so friendly and attentive to one's needs, and the food outstanding.

And then of course the game drives....pride of lions, white rhino's, wild dogs, hyena's and plains game all in 1 game drive how fantastic, thank you Josia. My only complaint my trip was way too short. I will be back.

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

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!

Garonga is a wonderful boutique safari resort with only a small number of luxury tented rooms. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The game drives were amazing - CJ was great and explained us a lot about the wildlife and happily answered all our questions.

We stayed at Garonga for 3 days and saw the Big Five and so much more. A truly incredible experience. We also enjoyed the down time at the resort (between the morning and afternoon game drives) - having meals at the main house, having a little snooze in the hammock or cooling down in the pool. Fantastic place and amazing luxury safari experience!

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.
