    Garonga was an amazing time. We really didn’t know what to expect, but we had the experience of a lifetime. On our first full day we sat on the porch of our tent and watched elephants, antelope, a giraffe and a lion at the watering hole. I must admit I had a hard time sleeping because animals were nearby grazing all night and I am a light sleeper. Hearing a lion next to your tent at night was something else. I was able to catch up on sleep during the afternoon break though so it was worth it. We saw so many animals and got great pictures. Again the staff and lodging at Garonga was great. The breakfast and lunch were also wonderful. The dinners were only average. Lindsay and I do not like game meat which was served for dinner most nights. After the first night we made them aware of our meat preferences and each day they would offer an alternative.

    What a view it is that you arrive to. Even having seen the pictures on their website I was amazed. The accommodation itself was fantastic. The level of service was out of this world. The safari team were great guides and great fun. The sleep-out was a highlight for us both, we had a giraffe eating from the tree next to us – so close I have a head-shot of it taken from in bed!

    Garonga & Savannah was the best. The owners & hostess was always present to make sure our needs were met, even offered special requests. I did not realize there were so many game drives. They were each 4hrs and two times per day. By the time we got to Savannah I counted 9. I stayed home for 2 game drives to enjoy my beautiful place that you arranged. The service & connections were seamless & the best!!!!
