Overview of Little Garonga

Set in the 22 000ha Greater Makalali Conservancy in Limpopo Province, Little Garonga is a luxury tented bush camp just a few hours’ drive from Johannesburg and close to the Kruger National Park. Little Garonga is close to local airports and can also be accessed via domestic flights or private air charters.

There are only 3 sumptuous suites at Little Garonga which can be booked as a whole for families or groups. There are many opportunities to relax and soak up treatments from the lodge’s spa but it’s the game viewing that will be most memorable: go on daily game drives and guided walking safaris in search of classic African wildlife or arrange for a sleep-out under the stars for the ultimate in safari experiences.
