We spent 5 nights at Garonga for part of our honeymoon. After arriving tired but excited, we were greeted by the brilliant Charlotte, the manager, with cold cocktail drinks and taken to a fantastic "tent". The lodges are incredible - stylish, comfortable, clean and yet retaining a rustic feel so that you could be sleeping out. The rangers and trackers are brilliant (Jaff and Stuart - you rock!), finding every animal with their knowledge and sharing as much as they can with you. Don't be surprised if your tracker wanders off for a while to find the cheetahs! We can highly recommend the "sleep out" - a bed on a platform in a tree, but the luxury is amazing, the waterhole brings all the animals (to the yard) and the stars - good grief, there are so many. It's simply wonderful. Big thanks to all the backstage workers, keeping us safe, clean, and superbly well fed. If we were to go on safari in South Africa again, we would DEFINITELY go back to Garonga. There's no point going anywhere else when you've stayed with the best. THANK YOU!!!
