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 .

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!!

Bernie has created the most perfect safari experience. Caring staff, amazing guides and trackers, terrific accommodation and wonderful dining. As first timers to safari this ticked all the boxes! We saw in the New Year with wonderful new friends from across the world and Lisa had gone all out with decorations and a superb meal. The viewing of animals from our tent was surreal.

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.

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
