Our brand new private tented camp is proof that all truly good things come in threes.
MCH is under canvas romance that pays tribute to the century-old tradition of safaris yet has all the luxury trappings and modern comforts that you need for a memorable Big 5 safari in South Africa. Like Garonga Safari Camp and Little Garonga, the newest member of the Garonga family welcomes you just as warmly to our ‘safari for the soul’ experience with special indulgences and unexpected treats.
A private tented camp in a bold location
From the kopje on which the camp proudly sits, the wilderness spills out below with splendid vistas that only the Greater Makalali Private Game Reserve can deliver so effortlessly. The vast Drakensberg Mountain range beyond is also in view from the camp.
MCH has been set up to accommodate private groups whether families, or a group of friends. It is a completely luxury safari camp experience, shared only with those you arrived with and a small team of staff that are on hand to take care of your needs throughout your stay.
Exclusive canvas tents surrounded by Big 5 safari wilderness
Each of the four tents comfortably accommodates two guests in an elegantly furnished and spacious suite. Take your pick from indoor and outdoor showers, and a bath that is partially covered overhead, while open in front to views of the bush.
The private lounge indoor area has its own bar and tea station, writing desk, tack room for jackets, and for those warmer days, air-conditioning and fans can be enjoyed throughout. From the comfort of the seated area of the wooden outdoor deck, the bush opens before you.
Share in our ‘safari for the soul’ experience
There are several areas in which to come together and create special holiday memories with loved ones. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks around the camp firepit before dining on delicious, simple yet elegant dishes whether in the Boma or Mess Tent. There is also an indoor dining area and lounge with fireplace for those cozy nights in.
The hotter hours of the day are best spent lazying around the pool with a chilled drink in hand, in the library reading a good book or perhaps under the experienced hands of our spa therapist at the Massage Sala. And of course, a true Garonga ‘safari for the soul’ retreat is not complete without a Sleep Out Deck and at MCH it is a little bigger, although no less intimate, to accommodate four guests for a night under the stars.
A special dedication to a mother
By now you are likely itching to know what MCH stands for. It is a beautiful tribute to Maria Carmela Hambleden, the mother of Bernie, Garonga’s owner. The elephant that represents MCH in the new Garonga Safari Co. logo is, quite aptly, the matriarch of the three elephants.
We are thrilled to have another addition to the Garonga family and believe MCH is the perfect complement to Garonga Safari Camp and Little Garonga. MCH is waiting to spoil you with all the things you have come to know and love about the Garonga safari experience.
