Little Garonga is a Limpopo game lodge providing a wildlife experience for tourists visiting Valley of the Olifants.

About Little Garonga

Little Garonga offers accommodation in a luxury, private lodge situated in the greater Makalali Conservancy, west of the Kruger National Park. Little Garonga offers guests the opportunity for a unique wildlife encounter and to relax in a serene wilderness environment. Little Garonga echoes the surroundings of the bush's textured earthy colours by incorporating simplistic lines into every fine detail with only pure high quality linen to ensure an indulgent and enticing stay. The lodge is ideal for small groups or families to absorb the smaller niceties of the nearby animal and bush landscape.

Little Garonga Game Lodge features three well-appointed thatched suites, each with expansive full en-suite bathrooms including an indoor and outdoor shower as well as a private deck with an inviting hammock to relish in the surrounding beauty.

All suites are situated around a centralised indoor and outdoor lounge area, a swimming pool and a built in braai/BBQ area. For the ultimate comfortable stay we have included amenities such as air-conditioning, mini-bars, bathrobes and slippers, luxury bathroom amenities, hairdryer and room safes.

The lodge also has its own host, chef, waiter and housekeeper so is totally self-contained and run separately from the Safari Camp.

Please see the individual room descriptions and photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

Breakfast and Dining

Guests have the option to have their own private table for breakfast and lunch. We vary the location and theme for dinner by providing either a communal round table in the main lounge, or a boma dinner, or private tables which all have their own unique position. During low season (winter months) we do not serve lunch as breakfast is much later (10h00), but we do serve a high tea just before the afternoon game activity. In winter time there is a huge fireplace where guests can gather round before dinner. We also do breakfasts out in the bush.


In addition, we offer the following facilities and activities to our guests for a bit of extra pampering:
• Open Air Bush Bath
• Summer Picnics
• A Bush Sleep Out Experience
• Indulgent Massages (We have a full time therapist on site)
• Swimming Pool
• Large Open Lounge with 'help yourself' Bar Boma
• Gift Shop
• Wine Cellar (An excellent selection of South African wines are cooled here).
• Wireless: We have wireless reception within 60m of the main areas (Safari Camp and Little Garonga)
