- Luxury lodge with exclusive feel
- Superb, uninterrupted views
- 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.
The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
