&Beyond Klein’s Camp main&Beyond Klein’s Camp

Deep in a remote corner of the game-rich Serengeti National Park, a 10 000 hectare (24 700 acre) wilderness concession leased from Maasai landlords offers guests the ultimate personal Tanzanian safari at &Beyond Klein’s Camp. Explore the African night on night drives and game walks in the concession. Overlooking the wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands, marshes and forested river banks of the Serengeti and with Kenya’s renowned Masai Mara National Reserve directly to the north, Klein’s Camp is one of the most strategically positioned wildlife sanctuaries in the world. Set on the edge of the Kuka Hills, it commands breathtaking views of the valley below, through which huge herds of wildebeest and zebra migrate annually. While the Great Migration is an annual highlight, guests can experience excellent year round lion, leopard and cheetah viewing. Huge herds of buffalo and breeding herds of elephant are all resident, and birdwatching in the seasonal marshland is exceptionally rewarding. Several species of raptor breed on the cliffs above Klein’s Camp and numerous birds of prey, including vultures and eagles, are frequently spotted soaring on the updrafts.

Perched on the edge of the Kuka Hills, &Beyond Klein’s Camp features intimate safari accommodation – just ten cottages of local stone and makuti, with rich wooden floors and classic interiors. Each cottage has an ensuite bathroom and private veranda with breathtaking views over the surrounding valley. A diversity of resident wildlife, including huge elephant herds, can be viewed from everywhere in camp – even the kitchen boasts unforgettable views. The camp has a large, beautifully furnished bar and sitting area, a sparkling swimming pool, and a Safari Shop featuring locally-made Maasai crafts. Fresh vegetables picked from the Camp’s shamba (an organic African garden) create wholesome Pan African dishes. Dinners are served in the main dining area, which is graced by a large open fireplace, or enjoyed in a spectacular clearing deep in the heart of the African bush.

&Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas main&Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas

Serengeti National Park, famed for its vast tree-less grasslands and excellent wildlife sightings, the endless open plains of Tanzania’s magnificent Serengeti National Park boast 35 species of plains-dwelling game and prolific birdlife. The annual movement of wildebeest and other herbivores across East Africa’s Serengeti-Mara ecosystem is one of the greatest spectacles in the natural world. Over two million animals participate in this great migration, with some 200 000 zebra ahead of and 500 000 Thomson’s gazelle behind the main players – one and a half million wildebeest. The wildebeest spend the wet season on the south eastern Tanzanian plains and the Serengeti’s dry season on the plains of Kenya’s Masai Mara. The &Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas camps follow the Great Migration, bringing guests as close as possible to all the action.

&Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas reaches far beyond the bounds of the traditional Tanzanian safari – the sumptuously luxurious tented, seasonal camps move around the Serengeti year round, bringing guests within range of the Great Migration. When the Migration crosses over into Kenya, the camps remain in the remote, beautiful corners of the Serengeti, renowned for excellent resident game. The two intimate camps feature just eight ensuite safari tents each, carefully positioned in exclusive semi-permanent campsites in the Serengeti National Park. Booked on a nightly basis, each luxury ensuite mobile tent boasts a comfortable double bed, ensuite bathroom, separate w.c. and bucket shower – this is the ultimate in luxury camping. The guest areas comprise comfortable tents for dining, meeting for a pre-dinner drink, or just for whiling the time away between safaris – complete with private butler service, delicious home-baked meals, and traditional bush dinners served under the stars.
