Superior Safari Cuisine
The food at Garonga Safari Camp is a fusion of the resident chef’s exceptional culinary skills and there is a varied selection of excellent South African wines – making every meal at Garonga an unforgettable experience.

Safari for the Soul
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 do simply nothing at all – lazing in the hammock with a good book while watching the grazing impala.
Activities include game drives, wilderness walks, sleep-outs, outdoor bush-baths and aromatherapy and reflexology sessions. We encourage our guests to indulge in activities that will allow them to walk close to the animals, and thereby enhance their wildlife encounter.
Garonga offers a true safari in a pristine wilderness. The wide variety of game at Garonga ensures that guests are pleasantly surprised at what they see, as well as how close the animals are when they are sighted. Staff and guests have contributed to this wildlife photo album. There is plenty of interaction with the Guests when looking for game. Guests are encouraged to follow the tracking experience (almost as exciting as seeing the game) whether by vehicle or on foot. We encourage our guests to interact with their environment as much as possible, taking a deeper understanding of wilderness away with them.
Get Married in Style
Your wedding is said to be one of the most memorable days in your life - however, this is often not the case, and unnecessary stress and irritation can occur when things don’t run as smoothly as planned. Garonga will not only offer you a place of tranquility to hold your dream wedding, but we will be able to assist you in coordinating and organising the event– thereby leaving you free to relax and enjoy your special day in style.
African Accommodation – inspired by nature. The accommodation at Garonga Safari Camp reflects the surroundings of the bush – textured earthy colours and clean lines have been incorporated with fine linen to ensure pure comfort, a tempting place to lie and meditate for hours.
Tented Rooms – Shower under the stars.
The Tented Rooms are situated on a dry riverbed – each with a wooden deck that commands spectacular views. The rooms are spacious, with large, draped beds. In addition to the indoor shower, there is an outdoor shower that flows outwards from the luxury of the room, providing a continuous link to nature.
