The fate of the environment is very close to many safari enthusiasts’ hearts. Garonga shares their passion to conserve this beautiful planet, and has gone a long way to create a green safari experience.
The label eco-friendly safari doesn’t come without its fair share of contribution and involvement in keeping things green. The Garonga team stands behind their efforts to constantly look for new ways to be environmentally friendly. From solar power and heater pumps to a biogas system, Garonga is making a change in the way a modern day safari is experienced.
Even the Garonga wildlife is benefiting from the camp’s conservation efforts. The animals can enjoy drinking fresh, water that’s been filtered from camp and pumped back to the waterhole. The Garonga vegetable garden is also thriving, providing clean, organic produce to the camp’s guests.
Pairing a leisurely, unhurried ‘soul safari’ experience with genuine care for the environment, Garonga stands out from the crowd of safari camps in Africa.
‘On the edge of the Kruger National Park, Garonga has, through Bernie’s determination and personal investment, become one of the most eco-friendly safari camps in South Africa – if not the entire continent.’ a travel article by Turquoise Holidays states. Indeed, persistence and commitment can make a green-tinged difference.
