Dining at Garonga is focused on well-prepared, healthy and tasty dishes created from wild fruits, berries and game such as kudu, warthog and impala. Compliment your meal with a delicious South African wine. The location and theme for dinner varies; choose to sit down with other guests in the main lounge, in private under the stars, or in the boma.

Relax on your private wooden deck or beside the swimming pool. For something more indulgent, visit The Sala where you can enjoy aromatherapy, reflexology and Indian head massages.
