Wow! Garonga is a great safari camp. We have been on safari numerous times and this place hit all the marks and then some. Only 6 "tents" so no more than 12 guests at a time. The tents are actually small, very posh concrete houses with mesh windows and front flap enclosures that make it feel like a luxury tent. Animals come right into the camp as there are two watering holes right below the rooms. Many animals including the Big 5 although the Cape buffalo are sequestered in a protected area to avoid being eaten by lions. A fantastic contraceptive program for the elephants eliminating the need for culling. Leopard and cheetah sightings. Tons of giraffe, zebras, antelope, four herds of elephants, white and black rhinos, multiple lion prides. The trackers and driver guides were incredible. They consistently found animals based on their foot prints. The bonus: a group of wild dogs containing 2 pairs of mating adults and two litters of puppies. OMG! Worth the whole trip! You will not be disappointed. Only one criticism and it's a big one: no A/C and when it's 115 and no place to escape to, that is a problem. If Garonga could add one retreat room with
A/C this place would be flawless. Truly.
