“Holistic, stylish, heavenly retreat (and safari camp)”
There are two camps, Garonga Camp and Little Garonga.
Garonga Camp has 6 palatial Tented Rooms, each with an earth-sculpted ensuite and a private deck with hammock. Raised on stilts, they sit amongst giant ebony trees overlooking a stunning watercourse. Exquisite handcrafted details abound, enormous beds take centre stage, and linens waft and billow in muted shades.All have indoor and outdoor showers. But for sheer indulgence, relax in the candlelit bush bath with a glass of champagne.
Little Garonga has 3 ensuite air-conditioned thatched suites. The Hambledon Suite has its own swimming pool, indoor and outdoor chill-out areas, and an additional children's bedroom located off of the lounge. The Chiltern and Buckingham Suites are each designed for 2, which huge picture windows allowing you to gaze outdoors from the comfort of your bed.
Little Garonga can also be rented exclusively.
The food is heralded as healthy and holistic. It is both but don’t think diets. Each mealtime is definitely part of the pampering process and gastronomically it is hard to beat. The buffet lunches and breakfasts are an art form that will tempt you to try far too much of everything.
The resident chef emphasises the use of local, organic or home-grown produce, including wild fruits, berries and game. Local farmers supply fruit, cheese and milk. Ingenuity produces end results that are international in flavour but unique to Garonga. Even the most ardent foodie would be catered for in this culinary paradise.
Meals are generally communal although private dining can be arranged. They are events to linger over and savour, rather than hit-and-run affairs. Special touches include an after dinner cigar box and port. Picnics can be arranged for onward journeys or day trips.
