Perched beneath a cathedral of 200-year-old leadwoods, in the Greater Kruger National Park, lies Klaserie Sands River Camp. Here, guests can wake to the sounds of Africa — the tread of elephants, the commanding roar of a lion or the gentle chirping of birds — and experience the raw beauty of nature. The lodge is situated next to a dry riverbed surrounded by a forest of leadwood and marula trees.

An owner-run lodge, Klaserie Sands River Camp evokes a passion for the great outdoors with simple elegance. The intimate lodge accommodates eight guests in four guest suites, including a honeymoon suite and family suite. All rooms come complete with air conditioning, overhead fans, mosquito nets and private decks with views over the African landscapes and riverbed.

An infinity pool overlooks the riverbed and watering hole, which regularly attracts a host of wildlife — particularly the local elephant population. Impala and kudu are also regular visitors along the riverbank, and an extraordinary variety of birdlife can be spotted in the area. Guests can spend time enjoying the African bush from the pool deck or private deck, or take a stroll through the lodge’s garden. There’s also the chance to experience the thrill of African wildlife from an open safari vehicle. Alternatively, visitors can enjoy the excitement of a walk through the bush to view game up close with one of the experienced field guides.

Back at the lodge, guests can relax and enjoy the lodges’ amenities, including relaxing spa treatments and an onsite gym set within beautiful gardens.

Klaserie Sands River Camp is dedicated to immersing guests in intimate encounters with nature, unhindered by other vehicles and time constraints. Guided birdwatching is on offer, and there’s always the chance to learn more about the area’s flora and fauna. The serene setting of Klaserie Sands River Camp is accompanied by first-class South African cuisine and fine estate wines, creating a memorable safari experience in the heart of the Greater Kruger for both first-timers and regular safari travellers.
