This safari hangs in the fine balance of luxury yet still authentic. All too often once a lodge goes into the ultra-luxury level it loses its authenticity, but these two careful selected camps are perfect for those seeking to enjoy a bit of luxury while still being in a truly wild area.

Starting off in the Klaserie Nature Reserve, an area with plenty of big 5 activity and relatively low commercial activity! You will see yourself in a private, luxury and romantic setting, a great introduction to the Lowveld. Then moving just slightly South into the Ngala Private Game Reserve, you change style of accommodation completely and, now find yourself in an authentic Luxury tented camp!

This 6-night luxury safari is well suited for anyone from single travellers, large groups and is perfect for honeymooners, who are seeking to experience the wild but want some added luxury. The accommodation is of high standard and you will find all the luxuries one needs to be comfortable in this pristine wilderness. Both locations are private and in prime locations so one can expect to experience this area without the mass tourism that the rest of Kruger is known for.

For these two camps, you get what you pay for. High quality of just about everything is guaranteed including fine food and large selections of premium beverages. And not to mention the wildlife and guiding standards are excellent. If luxury and quality of the experience is what you are after, then this is the tour for you!

detailed itinerary

This camp is best described as intimate with a touch of casual luxury while being romantic. It is set on the edge of a dry riverbed with a huge deck under some magnificently large trees. The friendly staff make you feel as though you are at home and for the next 3 nights you can expect to be well looked after. The camp is fenced in, so for those who want an easy start to the wild, then this camp will be the perfect start to settle you into your surroundings.

The camp is set in the Klaserie Nature Reserve which is a wildlife haven of note. Your knowledgeable guide also communicates with other guides in the area to give you the best possible chance of seeing the big animals which you came all this way for. There are good chances for all members of the big 5 here but the great guides working here are able to bring to life even the smallest of critters that call this place home.

This luxury tented camp is set right on the banks of the famous Timbavati river. The main area and all tents are spread out along the edge of the mostly dry river bed. The tents are spacious, have a balcony to relax on, an en-suite bathroom and a mini bar! Simply put, just about all the luxuries of a luxury hotel are within the tents so fear not about the term “Tent”.

The area is for exclusive use of only 2 camps, so you will be experience the area without the major traffic jams of the rest of Kruger. Along with this, the game viewing in this area is particularly productive. With skilled guides and trackers, the 5 big sightings are normally excellent and perfect if you are into photography.

From Ngala one has three options to move onto the next stage of the trip. A road transfer to either Johannesburg for onward connections, or a shorter transfer to Eastgate airport and then a flight to Johannesburg for onward connections. The 3rd option is a day trip/safari through the public roads of the Kruger and then another night just outside Southern section of the park, where you can then catch a flight from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport the next day.
