Klein’s Camp, set in a remote corner of the infamous north eastern Serengeti, offers a truly exclusive Tanzanian safari experience. A wildlife sanctuary within a 10 000 hectare (24 700 acre) wilderness wildlife concession leased from Maasai landlords (Ololosokwan Maasai community), Klein’s Camp overlooks the incredible wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands, marshes and forested river banks which surrounds it.
Klein’s Camp, Serengeti is supremely set within both the gentle and ruggedness of the African wild. This 10 cottage camp perfectly reflects this natural sanctuary, mirroring its soft rolling hills with gentle luxurious comforts, as well as it hard and rugged landscape with starkly rich fireplaces and furnishings. Blazing fires, fine linen, silver and china provide luxurious comforts and the lodge swimming pool adds a refreshing touch to your exclusive stay.
Perched on the edge of the Kuka Hills, panoramic views so breathtaking can be enjoyed as you laze within the warm comforts of the leather armchairs in the invitingly beautiful guest areas. The stone interiors of Klein’s Camp, Tanzania open up onto these never to be forgotten views, making your stay a truly special experience. The Serengeti almost feels within reach of your very own fingertips.
“Sitting in the safari vehicle with the waterproofs on and hearing the roar of an alpha male lion close by was one of the most special experiences of our many safaris. Returning to the wonderful Klein's Camp and sharing tales of this over a very fine dinner, and then drinks and silly games which we organised with the help of the resident manager, all made this an unforgettable safari. AND we still keep in contact with the other four guests who shared our wet lion adventure!!”
There is no better way to explore the Serengeti than to climb into an open 4x4 safari vehicle and experience Africa on the ground, face to face. Discover the true treasures of the endless plains and game rich wilderness of the Serengeti twice daily with game drives in the early morning as a new day dawns and in the late afternoon / evening.

ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AT KLEIN’S CAMP
Klein’s Camp, Tanzania offers some extraordinary opportunities to truly experience the ruggedness of the wild with a handful of remarkable additional experiences. Make an adventure out of your stay and participate in some extraordinary additional activities on offer including:
“After staying at your beautiful lodges at Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater we spent the last nights at Klein’s Camp.”
We had a fantastic safari, but the most amazing thing happened on our last evening in the Serengeti: going on a late afternoon game drive we saw three male lions resting and, whilst watching them, six females came out of the bush and got ready to hunt. Finally the six lionesses and two of the males started walking up the hill and we followed them. Our guide – who was great, by the way – expected them to move towards an open space, and so we drove there and were waiting for the lions to make their way there. In the meantime we had drinks(!) – gin and tonic in the middle of the bush, under millions of stars – and then the lions came out of the bushes and moved towards a herd of wildebeest. Then all went very quickly and after a quick ride we watched one of the lionesses killing a wildebeest and the other seven joining in for dinner.
The two of us were sitting in the car and couldn’t believe what we were about to see, with our drinks and cameras in hand. It was absolutely amazing to be so close to these wild animals and listening to the sound. After approximately 40 minutes we made our way back to the lodge – late for dinner, but full of everlasting memories! This was the perfect ending to a perfect safari, thanks to your always friendly staff, and the spectacular nature and wildlife in Tanzania.
