Garonga Safari Co. is committed to securing the future of white and black rhino populations in South Africa. We are an active partner in a rhino conservation project led by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in the Greater Makalali Private Game Reserve called the Black Rhino Range Expansion Project. This involves funding rhino relocations as well as teams of field rangers and working dogs that dedicate their lives to fighting rhino poaching in the Makalali.



Safari Camp

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.
