Overview

Klein’s Camp is a small, luxury lodge perched on the rocky slopes of the Kuka Hills with lofty, uninterrupted views over the vast Serengeti and Masai Mara plains, Northern Tanzania. There is abundant year-round wildlife including buffalo, elephant, lion, hyena, cheetah and leopard, and during the Great Migration, some two million wildebeest pass through, creating a dramatic spectacle.

The camp belongs to the &Beyond Portfolio and offers a high level of comfort and service. The main dining and bar areas are constructed of stone and thatch with lavish furnishings. There is a deep, round fire pit at the heart of the open-sided lounge area and a good-sized pool is set slightly apart on a delightful stone terrace. WiFi is available and all areas of the camp boast sweeping views of the valley below.

The accommodation comprises 10 well-positioned thatched cottages with whitewashed walls, soft cream furnishings and wooden floors. Each cottage has a large double bed, private veranda and en-suite bathroom.

The private nature of the 24,000 acre concession means that game drives take place both day and night and guests do not encounter other vehicle traffic, a rare luxury. Off-road driving facilitates really close wildlife sightings and the birdlife is spectacular. It is possible, at additional cost, to visit an authentic Maasai village some three hours away, where guests are invited into a traditional home for a glimpse of the Maasai way of life which has remained largely unchanged for centuries.

Children are welcome and all young visitors receive the camp’s ‘WILDchild’ welcome pack, informing them about local wildlife and culture. The family suite comprises two spacious cottages connected via a protected walkway and can accommodate up to two adults and two children (three children can be accommodated on special request). A limited number of triple rooms are also available. Game drives in standard, non-exclusive use vehicles are available to children aged 12 years or older. Children aged 6 – 12 may be permitted on game drives at the lodge manager’s discretion and children under 6 cannot participate in game drives, although childminding can be arranged at additional cost. Note that the camp is unfenced, with wildlife free to roam. While animals are unlikely to approach tents or humans, children of all ages must remain under vigilant parental supervision at all times.

Klein’s Camp has a relaxed, exclusive feel in a phenomenal location. While it is not an option for those on a limited budget, it is an excellent choice for any traveller in search of a genuine safari experience combined with cultural interaction, comfort, and privacy in a true wilderness location.

  • Everything was exceptionally well arranged and the whole trip, from checking in on line and printing out the outward journey boarding cards from home, until return to Heathrow, was completely seamless.

    Although arriving slightly earlier than scheduled, we didn't have to wait before being collected at Nairobi by Elijah, our guide and Samuel the driver. On being told that we had hardly slept at all on the outward journey, they took us to a small B&B place they use (sorry, I've forgotten the name of the place) and we were able to rest/sleep for some 3 hours before setting off on our adventure. This was very much appreciated by us as that first day was full on after that.

    They looked after us really well and both were very knowledgeable and good company and were flexible to our needs, with nothing being too much trouble for them.

    The accommodation you picked for us was spot on. We were particularly taken with Sunbird Lodge (I could have spent the whole week there if it were not for being on the move due to the nature of the trip), which was quite informal and extremely friendly. We then moved on to the Maji Moto Eco Camp, where again everything was fine. Having stayed in similar places before, at my age now, the one night suited well and I was surprised when Dan was so taken with the place that he would have liked to stay another night! I think the camp fire might have had something to do with it. The visit to the school was also well worth it from Dan's perspective.

    On then to Ilkeliani and I concur with what you say about it being so well priced for what it offers, that it is a good recommendation. This was slightly more formal at mealtimes than Sunbird Lodge but nevertheless, the staff were equally friendly. As adults, both my husband and myself enjoyed the food although the feedback I provided on their customer satisfaction questionnaire was that perhaps the evening meals could possibly have slight variations for children. We didn't see any signs of the suspended footbridge and as we didn't ask about it, I don't know whether it's still there or not.

    I have to say that the beds in both Sunbird and Ilkeliani were very, very, comfortable.

    The Mayfair Southern Sun was again a good choice although I think the room we had was perhaps a standard twin room. There were two what I call "three quarters" sized beds, i.e. larger than a single but not quite a double bed size, which meant it was a bit of a squeeze for 2 persons in one bed.

    Both the Giraffe Centre and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Sanctuary were ideal additions to the itinerary. We had a 10 year old who was reluctant to leave Kenya!

  • The walking in the mountains was a fantastic experience, helped by our perfect guide Ibrahim. He was intelligent, kind, cheerful and looked after us very well. He could answer all our questions on flora, fauna, geology, history and local culture. He walked at a steady phase that suited all and made sure everyone was happy. We could not have asked for more.
    Our favourite place to stay was the Azzaden trekking lodge where we were welcomed warmly with slippers, dates, milk and a hand wash. The food was excellent and the breakfast was very impressive. The hospitality of Mohamed was second to none. The view from the balcony was amazing and when it got dark the stars came out in their millions. ( we did however not manage to find out in which bed Daniel Craig had slept).
    When we reached Kasbah Toubkal the weather had turned cold and wet so we could not enjoy the roof terrace and the outdoor area.
    Riad Tzara was excellent and Naima, Khadija, Abdul and Mohamed looked after our every need. We had dinner one night on the roof of Dar Hanane where the view over the city was great. We also liked the cozy roof terrace in Riad Tzara where the perfect temperature was in the afternoon after escaping from the noises and fumes of the Medina.

  • The highlights for us were the accommodation choices - we loved each place we stayed and for quite different reasons.

    We found the food really delicious at all the places. We were really impressed. We ended up eating dinner every night at Dar Housnia, which was really tasty but a bit expensive but we loved the convenience of it and loved everything else about the place.

    My 9yr’s favourite place was Douar Samra - he liked the rooms and all the meals. We all like the communal meals there. It was good to get to know other travellers. But my husband and I really loved the Douria Suite at Dar Housnia as it was great to the have space and down time by ourselves there. We spent some hours just lazing on the terrace after walking around Marrakech for hours.

    We also thought Kasbah Ellouze was really lovely too. They were super helpful accommodating the kids. They made sure we could celebrate NYE dinner with the kids as they go to bed early. It was really kind of them.

    We had a Hussain as our guide for trekking and he went with us on the road trip. We really liked him: friendly & kind, and not too loud & talkative (our family is on the quiet side!). Hussain was great with our two boys. He made them feel comfortable, kept them safe on the treks (ie speed walking ahead with them when they wanted (our 4yr old loved this!) and holding them securely on mules over the rough terrain) and he played football with them too!
    We had two different drivers who were both good - helped out when our 9yr old vomited from car sickness and were happy to drive slowly as needed.

    Also we thought your organisation of everything and choice of accommodation & guides was excellent. We had no complaints. We had a splendid, relaxed and easy holiday - we didn’t have to think of anything & it was all great.
