Trip Advisor


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 5. 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!


My husband and I stayed here for three 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.


Just outstanding game viewing in a great setting. We split our visit with three nights in Little Garonga and two nights in the Safari Camp. This is our second visit and it fully matched our memory. Staff are a delight and cannot do more for you. Food is very good and loads of it. Accommodation is good without being extravagant which you would expect on safari. Little Garonga is three houses all air conditioned with its own lounge/dining building and pool. Tents are solid wall on three sides with good bathrooms but no a/c. Surprisingly that didn’t prove to be a problem. Large lounge/dining building with a massive deck and fantastic views.


Loved our stay at Garonga Safari Camp. The facilities are outstanding, the service is top notch, the safaris were great and our tracker and driver Johnson and Phineas were brilliant. We got to see all the animals we wanted to see; they went above and beyond to make sure we did. The extras were also fantastic, the Bush Bath is a wonderful experience, and the massage was also very good. Would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a fantastic safari experience.


This is the place to be if you want to know the real safari experience in an intimate and magical place.
We stayed there for two nights and this place felt like heaven. With only 6 tents and 12 guests max, the place is really intimate which allows to connect with other guests easily and enjoy the calm and the magic of the savannah. It doesn’t feel like a ‘touristic’ thing at all, compared to the other reserve we’ve been to after. But what made our stay even more unforgettable is the very friendly staff – they made us very welcome, they connect with their guests, they really want to make your stay special, they were always very caring. Our safari guide was passionate, eager to make us discover everything about the nature and the animals…


We stayed for three nights with our two children in the Hambleden Suite in Little Garonga. Weather was lovely and warm and the accommodation was excellent with two bedrooms and lovely views over the waterhole where we saw elephants come to drink in the afternoon. Our guides were Johnson and Phineas and they were very helpful and informative. Food was wonderful and my son got a lovely cake for his birthday as a surprise. It was our second visit as we came in 1998 as a couple when the camp had just opened. Bernie came and said hello again which was a nice surprise. We saw a lot of game, including the Big 5 with the exception of the leopard. All-in-all, a lovely relaxing safari and very welcoming place.


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.
