Things to do in South Africa

Romantic bubble baths under an African night sky at Garonga

A wonderful way to unwind with a glass of wine with your partner as you gaze up to the velvety black sky filled with sparkling stars…

By Bernie Smith
Owner Garonga Safari Company

As part of our safari for the soul experience, it’s important to be able to unwind and we have created the perfect way for our guests to do this. Hidden within the grounds of our camp we have two open-air baths where guests can relax with a loved one under the stars of an African sky.

The bush bath is completely open whilst the star bath is partly nestled under a grotto but still gives an incredible view of the night sky above. Set up with romantic lanterns, fluffy towels and indulgent toiletries, it’s the ultimate pampering session.

As you walk out to your free-standing bath, the adrenalin starts to pump as you tune in to the sounds of the night, an owl hoots and the rumble of a herd of elephants in the far distance. Whilst you are only a short distance from the lodge, the baths offer complete privacy due to their unique setting.

As you arrive at your outdoor bathroom setting, as comforting as the towels neatly folded for you, the romance of Africa wraps around you. The flickering light from the lanterns adds a warm glow to the atmosphere. Filled to the brim with bubbles, as soon as you sink into the warm water, you start to relax. A wonderful way to unwind with a glass of wine and reflect on your day’s safari experiences with your partner as you gaze up to the velvety black sky filled with sparkling stars.

Alfred & Bernie Smith

Bernie Smith developed his love for safari on a trip to East Africa with his parents in 1977. He decided to move from England to find a wildlife area that he could develop for eco-tourism. In 1997 he opened Garonga Safari Camp in the Greater Makalali Private Game Reserve and Little Garonga Safari Lodge followed in 2007. Bernie is the vision behind Garonga’s  philosophy of ‘safari for the soul’.
