- Broad range of activities
- &Beyond portfolio
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.
We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.
We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.
We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).
We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)
