This unassuming sanctuary promises an intimate wildlife encounter in an unhurried environment where you can unwind, sleep deeply and be yourself. Garonga Safari Camp reflects the surroundings of the bush's textured earthy colours and clean lines have been incorporated with fine linen to ensure pure comfort, a tempting place to lie and meditate for hours.

The luxury tents are situated overlooking a dry riverbed - each with a wooden deck complete with hammock that commands spectacular views. The rooms are light, airy and spacious with large, draped beds. In addition to the indoor shower, there is an outdoor shower, providing the perfect link between the luxury of the suite and the allure of Mother Nature.

The food at Garonga Safari Camp is a fusion of the resident chef's exceptional culinary skills and there is a varied selection of excellent South African wines - making every meal at Garonga an unforgettable experience. Garonga's holistic philosophy is to offer a safari for the soul, an unhurried and intimate wildlife encounter, a time to reflect and find inspiration in nature. You can either try your hand at every activity we have on offer, or you can do simply nothing at all, lazing in the hammock with a good book while watching the grazing impala.

Activities include game drives, wilderness walks, sleep-outs, outdoor bush-baths and aromatherapy and reflexology sessions. We encourage our guests to indulge in activities that will allow them to walk close to the animals, and thereby enhance their wildlife encounter.

You may sleep out on your own on a beautiful deck with stunning views overlooking the veldt. A mouth-watering picnic hamper, a drinks box, and hot drinks are left for you at the deck. You are left with a radio and will get collected in the morning. A wash basin and toilet close by are provided. It is a 20 minute drive from the main camp. A truly magical experience!

Day 8-10: Arathusa Safari Lodge, Kruger National Park, South Africa

You will be driven approximately 3 hours to Arathusa Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sands Game Private Game Reserve (includes all gate entrance fees)

"Arathusa" is derived from the Northern Sotho Word "Reathusa", which means "to help one another".

Arathusa Safari Lodge is located within the northern sector of the coveted Sabi Sand Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park. This region has gained favour due to its lengthy history within the South African tourism industry, its incredible concentrations of wildlife, and the high quality private safaris on offer. The lodge flanks the bank of a large waterhole (approximately 250m x 150m) allowing for a 180- degree view of the water. Guests are able to view and enjoy a variety of wildlife (including the big five - lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, and elephant). There is usually between 5 and 20 hippos "right on the doorstep" providing 24 hour entertainment.

The camp is an intimate one, completely open-plan and designed to harmoniously blend with the adjacent waterhole and African bush. Wood and thatch, air and water - an extension of the natural environment!

The main living area is intended for comfort. Whether quietly reflecting on the view; reading a good book; enjoying compatible banter with friends or fellow safari go-ers - the warmth and charm of the camp environment is the foundation of the Arathusa safari experience.

An infinity swimming pool overlooks the waterhole and is the perfect spot for wildlife viewing on a smoldering African summer's afternoon.

A traditional open-air boma (brick & grass enclosed dining area) presents guests with a novel way of appreciating an enjoyable meal under the stars to the sounds of the African wild.

Arathusa Safari Lodge is an intimate and hospitable camp. Thatched luxury suites are within the camp's perimeter. Each have a bathroom en-suite (with bath and separate indoor and outdoor showers), and a verandah for optimum enjoyment of the surrounding wilds. Twin rooms may also be arranged.

Arathusa has recently launched 4 ultra-luxurious suites. These remote and exclusive units are further removed, and have their own private plunge pools and lounge areas.

Additional amenities include a mini bar (stocked with a selection of beverages), an electronic safe, hairdryer, air conditioning, mosquito net and tea/ coffee making facilities.

There are no telephones or televisions in the rooms at Arathusa. In keeping with the traditional safari experience, the bush is best experienced "al dente". Guests are however able to make calls from the reception area, and to send or receive e-mails and faxes.

Arathusa prides itself on its' leopard viewing. As leopards are territorial, their regular appearances in our area allow us to plot their movements and to observe their behavior. Many of the animals become familiar and are easily recognized - this enables us to name them. There is a female leopard named 'Safari' who is often seen around the camp. Approximately 14 leopards are found in the area in which Arathusa operate, 6 of which are seen on a regular basis. Large herds of buffalo numbering in excess of 300 often find their way to the Arathusa Lake. One need not move far to enjoy the safari experience! Elephants are also seen in numbers. There are various lion prides in the area, as well as a few nomadic males.

Over 90% of guests will experience The Big 5 - very often in one day, sometimes in one drive.

General "lowveld" game is abundant in this section of the Sabi Sand Reserve, including giraffe, zebra, warthog, impala and more. This region is a bird-watcher's mecca. A few of the rarer birds are seen from the camp itself, such as the Horus Swift.

Game drives in an open safari vehicle meander their way into the bush each morning and late afternoon in search of animals both large and small. Close contact encounters are guaranteed (the animals are not threatened by our presence in lieu of sound conservation management policies) affording unparalleled photographic opportunities of The Big Five and much more (including over 300 bird species - a treat for keen birders!). Experienced and personable rangers are coupled with local trackers. Together they ensure a first class safari experience.

Guided walks with an armed ranger may also be arranged. Helpful Hint - do not head into the bush in the middle of the day during summer months! Walks are usually arranged in the more moderate hours of the early morning. Being on foot brings an altogether different view of the bush.

Day 11: Departure

You will be collected from the lodge and driven 1 hour 30 minutes hours to the Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport for you onward flight (flight excluded).
