Garonga on TripAdvisor

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!

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.

Had a fantastic time at the newly revamped Garonga camp. Lovely hospitality from all the staff including the owner Berny, and manager Rina, as well as our guide Josia and tracker Richard.

We were very lucky to have room 1 which has the best view of the water hole and saw Zebra, wart hog , antelope and elephant in camp before we even went on a game drive. Saw leopard within the first half hour of our first game drive.

Lovely atmosphere in the camp with good food and friendly interaction with others staying there. A must visit location .

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!

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!
