Travel Options to Make Your Journey Even Easier
‘Makalali’s bushveld, in contrast to those reserves directly adjacent to the Kruger, is a series of undulating hills that offer incredible viewpoints and panoramic views across the reserve.’ This is how SA Venues describes this wilderness area, situated just west of the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
Garonga Safari Camp and Little Garonga, nestled in this 22000ha wildlife haven, provides an ideal location to seek out the Big Five and experience close-up wildlife encounters without the crowds. The name Makalali means “a place of rest” in Shangaan and it suggests that the reserve offers an utterly unique and intimate wildlife experience. Embark on a game drive and be mesmerized by the abundance of game, including lion, kudu, cheetah and anything in between.
The only question left is how do you get there?
Garonga is easily accessible by both air and car:
- Direct chartered flight from Johannesburg
- Flight and air-charter (Nelspruit KMIA)
- Flight and road transfer (Hoedspruit / Phalaborwa)
- Self-drive (only 6 hours from Johannesburg)
