Garonga offers a relaxing natural experience in beautiful surroundings. The six luxury tents blend classic luxury, comfort and exceptional service to promise a "safari for the soul".
The accommodation at Garonga reflects the surrounding bush. It offers a real "home away from home" experience, where service is professional and friendly, yet unobtrusive.
Each of the six en-suite luxury units is sculpted out of rough-plastered walls and overarching canvas tents. The tents are situated overlooking a dry riverbed, and have a wooden deck complete with hammock that commands spectacular views. The rooms are light, airy and spacious with large, draped beds and indoor/outdoor showers.
Garonga offers a true Big Five safari experience, with expert guides and trackers who are knowledgeable about the wide variety of animals in our nature reserve. Track wildlife in the pre-dawn or enjoy traditional early morning and late afternoon game drives.
Safari walks with a game ranger are another highlight, bringing our guests up close to the flora and fauna of the nature reserve. The Garonga guides will also point out the varied birdlife, and explain how they track animals by their prints.
So why choose Garonga?
Value for money, a true bush experience, a more intimate atmosphere. PLUS a superb piece-de-resistance (images below)
