Garonga on TripAdvisor

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.

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.

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 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.

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!
