Just come back from a 2 week honeymoon trip to S. Africa and Mozambique.
1st week we spent 7 nights at Garonga Safari Camp. Without a shadow of doubt this place was immense. What can I say!?!?!
The accommodation, service and staff smash some of the best 5 star hotels I have ever stayed at and this place is in the middle of the African bush!!
Bernie and his excellent team know what customer service is all about. From start to finish you are always looked after without being imposed upon.
The accommodation is amazing - luxury tents with all the mod cons that make you feel secure and more than comfortable whilst on a true African adventure! We looked out into the bush and a nearby water hole that was frequented daily by lions, elephants and all the usual suspects!
The food was top quality - breakfasts, lunch and dinner spot on and as good as any 5 star hotel restaurant...The dinners were all very social and each night we dined in differnt places on the camp.
Activity wise - amongst excellent game driving my wife and I dined in a tree one lunch time, had a bush bath but missed out on the sleep out overnight just because it was booked up- gutted because the feedback from the other guests on that activity were amazing.
Oh - Faye's massages are also a defo not to miss - nothing worse than paying for an expensive tickle - she knows how to cure those travel knots!!! So good we took the complimentary one as part of our honeymoon package and then paid for another two!!!
The game drives were superb. The rangers and trackers know their stuff and on request managed to find the animals our group wanted to see on a daily basis. We saw all the major game and learnt so much whilst we were out there - very enlightening!
All the staff are so friendly, professional and helpful. They know exactly when they are required and give you all the space needed. One fine example of going the extra mile. I forogot topack my battery charger for the camera and was obviously gutted as this would have meant I would have missed out on some major shots. The following day having reported this to the team they travelled to Hoedspruit and bought one for me!!!
Seriously - we could not ask for any more - great job Bernie and the team!
Stu & Susie.
