Garonga's holistic philosophy is to offer a safari for the soul, an unhurried and intimate wildlife encounter, a time to reflect and find inspiration in nature. You can either try your hand at every activity we have on offer, or you can simply relax in a hammock with a good book while enjoying the sights and sounds of the reserve.
