Inspired by nature’s impressive termite mounds, Little Garonga is an intimate, exclusive extension of Garonga Safari Camp, located in the 22 000 hectare Makalali Conservancy in Limpopo. Designed to reflect the textures and colours of the earth, Garonga’s holistic philosophy is to offer a safari for the soul, finding inspiration in nature with time to reflect.
Garonga offers a fantastic Big Five game experience, with elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, hippo and an abundance of antelope and more. Professional guides introduce the wonders of Africa’s wildlife on game drives and wilderness walks for more intimate, enhanced encounters. For a truly unique experience, a sleep-out excursion on a secluded deck over the veldt is magical, with moonlit vistas, an explosion of stars, and the lion’s roar. Or simply take time out with an outdoor bush bath, or aromatherapy and reflexology sessions in the sala.
Little Garonga is ideal for private groups, families or couples, with just three thatched, air-conditioned luxury suites, and a dedicated guide, vehicle, host and staff. An intimate affair with the suites around a central indoor/outdoor lounge, swimming pool, firepit and barbecue. Each suite has its own platform deck and hammock, mini bar, indoor bath and shower, as well as an al fresco shower.
The food here is a fusion of the resident chef's exceptional culinary skills and there is a varied selection of excellent South African wines.
