The accommodation at Garonga Safari Camp near the Kruger National Park reflects the surroundings of the bush’s 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. This is truly a “Safari for the Soul” Based in the Greater Makalali Private Game Reserve (22,000 ha). Garonga Safari Camp’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.We have all the Big game except Buffalo.
