Garonga Safari Camp


An intimate and private safari camp in the Makalali Conservancy, The Garonga Safari Camp's philosophy is to offer a relaxing and holistic experience, making it a true 'safari for the soul'. Guests stay either at the main camp, which has recently been refurbished and features six separate suites or in its sister camp, Little Garonga, which has just three. Each lodge has a main eating, meeting and relaxing area, as well as a swimming pool and a massage sala, all of which overlooks a waterhole.

Activities to do at Garonga Safari Camp

Sticking to its "safari for the soul" philosophy, the property achieves this through its tranquil outdoor bush baths and therapeutic massage sala offering beauty treatments, aromatherapy, reflexology and reiki. 

Black Rhino were reintroduced into the reserve in 2015, so both Black and White Rhinos are now frequently seen on game drives. As well as game drives, the property offers activities such as bird watching, sleep outs, and guided walks and wildlife tours.  


Our Thoughts

Billed as safari for the soul, it does exactly what it says on the tin. Game drives and walks are supplemented by sleep-outs and bush baths, but for many the real attractions are the aromatherapy treatments and reflexology massages available. Stay for at least three nights to fully bliss-out.
