Garonga Safari Camp's philosophy is to offer a distinct, relaxing and holistic wilderness experience allowing you the time to reflect and find inspiration in nature.
Garonga Safari Camp is located in the private and pristine Makalali Nature Reserve, only 90 minutes from the Kruger National Park's Phalaborwa gate. Garonga is a classic luxury tented camp that prides itself on offering a "home away from home" ambiance, along with exceptional service and an unforgettable Big Five wildlife experience.
Garonga boasts six Luxury Tents that are built on raised platforms and are a gorgeous blend of stone and canvas. Each tent features large beds draped with mosquito netting, en-suite bathroom with double vanities, bathtub and outdoor shower, window bench seating, a writing desk, tea & coffee making facilities; and a deck complete with a hammock, comfortable patio furniture and views of the bushveld.
The camp facilities include a dining area, bar, massage sala, boma, curio shop and swimming pool.
The 22 000 hectare Makalali Nature Reserve is home to a rich diversity of animals including the Big Five, cheetah, hippo, zebra, giraffe, wild dog, hyena, wildebeest, and a number of antelope species. Makalali also has over 200 bird species with the migratory birds present from November to April.
The activities offered at the camp or nearby include morning and evening open-vehicle game drives led by professional guides, guided bush walks which afford up-close encounters with the fauna, flora and smaller wondrous creatures of the African bush, microlight flights over the Makalali Conservancy, an outdoor bush bath experience, and sleep-out experiences on a viewing deck that overlooks an active waterhole.
Garonga Safari Camp is ideal for solo explorers, couples, and families looking for a luxury Big Five safari.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
