Perched on the edge of the Kuka Hills, Klein’s Camp boasts magnificent views of an exclusive wilderness concession that borders the vast Serengeti plains. Guests enjoy exceptional Big Five game viewing, thrilling night game drives, Maasai culture and old-fashioned safari luxury.
With unbroken views over a beautiful game-filled valley and the hills beyond, which play host to one of the greatest wildlife migrations on earth, &Beyond Klein’s Camp embodies the very soul of the Serengeti. This private and remote camp offers guests the spirit of wild Africa – wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands and forested river banks all teeming with the rich wildlife of this natural sanctuary lie sprawled at their feet. Set in a landscape that is gentle yet rugged, &Beyond Klein’s Camp reflects the heart of this untamed land with a vintage safari style.
Situated on the edge of the Kuka Hills, ten thatched cottages with whitewashed walls and rich wooden floors look down onto the valleys below. Two of the existing cottages have been converted into a family suite to enhance the exceptional family safari facilities offered at &Beyond Klein’s Camp. Recently refurbished, the stone interiors of the guest areas open up to breathtaking panoramas and deep leather armchairs invite guest to while away the midday hours. Fine linen, silver and china sparkle in the candlelight of the open dining areas, while mouth-watering aromas drift through from the camp kitchen
Deep in a remote corner of the game-rich Serengeti National Park, &Beyond Klein’s Camp is set on a 10 000 hectare wilderness concession leased from Maasai landlords, giving guests the rare opportunity for night drives and game walks. Overlooking the wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands, lush marshes and forested river banks of the Serengeti and with Kenya’s renowned Masai Mara National Reserve directly to the north, Klein’s Camp is one of the most strategically positioned wildlife sanctuaries in the world. Set on the edge of the Kuka Hills, it commands breathtaking views of the valley below, through which huge herds of wildebeest and zebra migrate annually.
While the Great Migration is an annual highlight, guests can experience excellent year-round lion, leopard and cheetah viewing. Huge herds of buffalo and breeding herds of elephant are all resident and birdwatching in the seasonal marshland is exceptionally rewarding. Several species of raptor breed on the cliffs above Klein’s Camp and numerous birds of prey, including vultures and eagles, are frequently spotted soaring on the updrafts.
A number of scheduled airline services operate a morning scheduled flight from Arusha Airport to Klein’s airstrip, where guests are warmly welcomed and then taken on a one-hour game drive to the camp.
Weather & climate
Generally, temperatures are pleasant, with low of only 12°C and highs of 32°C. Rainfall predominantly takes place in April, May and November.
The currency is the Tanzanian shilling, however, most tourist destinations will require non-Tanzanian residents to pay in US dollars. It is difficult to exchange South African rand, so it is a good idea to obtain your foreign exchange in advance. Please note that dollar bills printed between 1996 and 1999 are not accepted in Kenya or Tanzania, as the illegal processing of bills was rife in East Africa during that time.
Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club and American Express are accepted by most restaurants, shops and hotels, but proof of identity may be requested.
Visas and documents
Although visa requirements change often, South Africans travelling to Tanzania currently require a visa. While it is a good idea to obtain a visa before leaving South Africa, visas can also be obtained at the airport on arrival. If you are planning to get your visa at the airport, please note that you will need to pay for this in US dollars. Make sure you have enough cash available and try to have smaller denominations, as you may not be able to obtain change at the visa counter.
Travellers to Tanzania must be in possession of a passport that is valid for at least six months from date of travel and should have at least two blank pages available in their passport.
