My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in January and had an amazing time. It was everything we hoped for and more. Very personal but not intrusive service from all of the staff. Setting is beautiful as you would expect. Different experience staying in a tented room but luxurious and comfortable too. Our game drives were exceptional. Special thank you to Josiah and Phinaeus who were knowledgable and fun to be around in equal measures. We saw and learnt so much and will always remember our time with you. Best sundowner bar we will ever visit that’s for sure! Can’t fault a single thing really. Thanks to all who made our first safari experience so special here.

You truly feel immersed in the heart of the bush at Garonga. I passed my free time watching elephants pass by from the pool or reading from a hammock in my room, overlooking the bush. Learning about the wildlife conservation through game drives and about wildlife tracking through bush walks was definitely a highlight of the stay. I was blown away by the knowledge of the guides and trackers at the camp and their constant work in monitoring the wildlife. Truly some of the most incredible game viewing experiences I've had, including spending a morning with the reserve's newest cheetah and watching two lionesses embark on a hunt and then eat their kill with their pride of cubs.


We arranged our wedding and honeymoon to South Africa with Far & Wild travel which included our amazing wedding day in Garonga Safari Lodge and what a location for a wedding. The wedding day was just amazing from start to finish started with a game drive in which we seen a leopard finished with a night in the sleep out deck. We saw all of the big 5 and more during our stay, we had never been on safari and we were just blown away. Within an hour of arriving we were out on a game drive seeing a pride of lions with their Cubs eating a zebra. You get so close to the animals, the jeeps go fully off road and the trackers and guides are excellent.

Safari for the soul - it truly lives up to its slogan.
Thank you so much Bernie and the staff for an unforgettable stay. The Hambleden Suite is so amazing. Spacious and clean. The food - wow, especially the homemade mustard ( its my favorite ) The game viewing - all bottled into an Amazing stay.
I cant wait to return!


We spent the first days of our honeymoon at the glorious and peacful Garonga Safari Camp. Everything about our stay was perfect: wonderful staff especially Charlotte, delicious food, Derrick & Kaizer were amazing on our game drives, and beautiful tents surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature. It was a truly memorable and special experience - thank you!


Everything was amazing: the service is so perfect that everything comes before you even ask; the staff is super nice; the place is beautiful, decorated in good taste and in harmony with nature; the food is absolutely delicious and the games are amazing, we saw so may animals and the big five. We even had elephants coming in front of our room. We just had the best holidays ever (and we have traveled a lot). We were so sad to leave and we will definitely be back!
