Little Garonga is a luxury and private lodge situated in the greater Makalali Conservancy, located west of the Kruger National Park. An unassuming and intimate sanctuary offering guests the opportunity for a unique wildlife encounter and to relax in an 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.

Property Facilities:
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
A Gift Shop

Wine Cellar: An excellent selection of South African wines are cooled here.

Wireless: We have wireless reception within 60 meters of the main areas.

Cuisine:
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.

Area Information:
MEDICAL:
Low risk malaria area (strongly recommend anti-malarial precautions). Please consult either a Travel Clinic or a Tropical Diseases Clinic for advice. MEDEVAC facilities through AIM South Africa. We suggest bringing Imodium, Valoid, and Panadol.

Rain average 450mm pa. Can reach up to 40 degrees celsius in peak summer and fall to 25 degrees at night. It starts cooling down from March.

Generally no rain at this time. Cold mornings and evenings. Temperatures reach about 25 degrees celsius max during the day and fall to between 5 - 10 degrees celsius at night. Electric blankets are put on the beds during the winter. It is very cold first thing in the mornings (winter); this is also due to wind chill factor on the vehicles.

LODGE:
The Makalali Conservancy is a private Big Five nature reserve outside of the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Morning and sunset game drives offer visitors the opportunity to encounter the incredible game that call this conservancy "home". Sit back and relax as experienced guides track down incredible wildlife encounters.

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.
