Little Garonga promises a private and personalised getaway at our luxury safari lodge in South Africa.
The three gorgeous suites that make up Little Garonga are completely separate from Garonga Safari Camp and MCH. All are fully en-suite, thatched and air-conditioned, each with a raised deck, complete with hammock and stunning bush views. They are located around centralised indoor and outdoor lounges, with a swimming pool overlooking the bush.
Little Garonga is for honeymoons and romantic retreats that deserve extra privacy and exclusivity. As a self-contained and run lodge, there is a private team of staff ready to meet all your needs. For a small family or friends group, Little Garonga is also an ideal exclusive-use lodge for a special safari experience.
The Hambleden Suite is a two-bedroom private villa suitable for a family of four or a couple who wants an extra-special and secluded stay.
The bedrooms are spacious and centre around four-poster beds. The hand-beaten copper bathtub is the highlight of the en-suite bathroom, which includes indoor and outdoor showers. The suite has a central fireplace, mini-bar and air-conditioning.
The indoor living space opens out onto a covered outdoor lounge and open raised deck with own swimming pool.
Chiltern and Buckingham are two cosy one-bedroomed suites that are designed for a couple and located just beyond the Hambleden Suite.
The bedroom comfortably accommodates a king size bed, small lounge and writing desk. The fully en-suite bathroom has a beautiful bathtub along with indoor and outdoor showers. Each suite has a mini-bar, ceiling fan and air-conditioning.
Outside, the private wooden deck has a seating area with hammock, ideal for those lazy days spent reading or watching wildlife passing by.
Fulfil your safari dreams with twice daily game drives led by our experienced and knowledgeable guides. In addition to the Big 5 (elephant, leopard, rhino, buffalo and lion), look out for cheetah, spotted hyenas, wild dogs, hippos, crocodiles, diverse plains animals and colourful birdlife.
Enjoy a night under the stars on our safari Sleep Out Deck, complete with four-poster bed and dining table for two. A 20-minute drive from the main camp, you will be fully immersed in your natural surrounds overlooking a waterhole that is known to attract a visitor or two.
Bathing beneath the African stars is the epitome of indulgence. The Bush Bath is a private, open-air safari bath experience set within the camp’s wild scenery. Expect romance, relaxation and lots of bubbles.
Let our resident chefs spoil you with their unique creations combining traditional dishes with international influences. Not forgetting the rich afternoon teas, fresh light lunches and indulgent breakfast spreads which, after your morning game drive, you will be able to tuck straight into.
Take flight for an unforgettable view of the Makalali Reserve. Soar above enchanting wildlife, scenery and the majestic Drakensberg Mountains.
Our ‘safari for the soul’ ethos is at home on our Yoga Deck. It’s the ideal spot to meditate, stretch and practice some well-deserved breathing time in nature.
Game drives are at the heart of the Garonga experience, allowing you to encounter the Big 5 and other wildlife up close. Your stay will typically include a morning and afternoon game drive in our open-air Land Rovers. Two of our experienced and qualified guides will lead you through the bush, impressing you with their knowledge of the great variety of wildlife in the reserve. Their tracking skills are exceptional, giving them the advantage of locating animals based on their recent movements and enabling your safari sightings dreams to come true. On a morning game drive, as the animals are waking up, tuck into tea, coffee and snacks in the bush. Then, in the late afternoon, sip on a cocktail or glass of wine as the sun slowly dips below the horizon. In addition to the Big 5 (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino), look out for cheetah, spotted hyena, black rhino, African wild dog, hippos, crocodiles, diverse plains animals and colourful birdlife.
