We chose Garonga to start our honeymoon, and after a very tiring journey from New York we were met on arrival by Bernie the owner - and immediately made at home.
Everything about Garonga was amazing and the owner and staff are fully prepared for every need - we were completely unprepared for the trip (having got married a day prior to leaving) so left for the South African winter with a New York summer wardrobe - so Bernie immidately pointed us in the direction of the shop so I was able to buy a fleece - and my husband, who said he would be OK Bernie loaned a jacket 'just in case'.
The food was amazing (wedding diet goes out of the window at Garonga) - with the evening meals being the highlight - and they were very considerate for dietry needs.
The game drives were really good, with our guide Jeff and 'tracker' Revel being very knowledgeable about the animals. They were also very friendly and over the course of our stay we were able to get to know them, and them us.
I would recommend Garonga to anyone!
We booked our trip through imagineafrica.co.uk - Ben was very helpful in putting together an itinerary - and made the entire process an enjoyable experience.
