#2 of 15 Speciality lodging in Klaserie Private Game Reserve
Travellers' Choice
Klaserie Sands River Camp is an award-winning safari lodge located in the wildlife-rich Klaserie Nature Reserve. This breathtaking expanse of wilderness shares an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, with Big 5 game moving freely throughout the region. An intimate 8-sleeper camp, Klaserie Sands River Camp is beautifully designed albeit humble in its deference to its staggering natural setting. The luxurious suites all overlook a riverbed or waterhole and are cleverly designed to give guests a sense of total immersion in nature. Twice-daily safaris offer guests extraordinary opportunities for up-close encounters with Africa’s legendary wildlife. When not on safari, there are an array of activities and tranquil spaces for guests to optimise on their leisure time. A rim-flow pool and sun deck offer superb views of the camp’s private water hole. Guests can quench their thirst with a decadent cocktail while watching a parade of animals and birdlife doing the same.

Desire G wrote a review Mar 2021
This review is about 6 months late, but worth a mention. The camp is beautiful with so much attention to detail. I can't remember the name of the hostess, but she was great, and no request was too big. The food was outstanding, and the bona dinners were magical - we were even entertained by fireflies the one evening! The best part of our trip, was walking with Matt, what an asset he is to the lodge! Matt's bush ethic is like nothing we have encountered before. His love and respect for nature is commendable. I highly recommend this lodge and the walks to anyone that loves the bush, great food, and wants to experience both in the lap of luxury.

From my first contact with Klaserie Sands I was impressed by the attention to detail. Carmen's communication was great, frequent and clear communication and nothing was too much trouble when I had to reschedule my trip at very short notice. The camp is small and unfenced and has been designed to blend into it's surroundings. My safari tent had an amazing view and was perfectly equipped. Matt was my guide for my 2 night stay and he was second to none, we did 2 walking safaris, 1 driving safari and 1 walking safari which became a driving safari when we found wild dog tracks and set off in search of them. Morris is an amazing tracker and found the pack of wild dogs, we spent almost an hour with them and it was fascinating to see them so close up. I really enjoyed seeing the smaller stuff on our walks and Matt's knowledge is incredible. There are also a number of birds in camp and I spent my afternoons by the pool watching and photographing them. The food that Liberty cooked up each day was superb and the service by the rest of the team was outstanding. It was lovely to spend time with such a close knit team. Thank you so much!

A different type of bush adventure, where as in most safaris you drive & see large amounts of wildlife mainly the Big5 Here you pay attention to all the wildlife & have no choice but to be more vigilant as you at times will be walking in the wild tracking your animals on foot, we saw fresh hippo, elephant, leopard & other thrilling tracks. Whilst we followed the calls of lions, learnt about the many spiders & bush plants that crossed our paths. We made the open camp our home for 2 days, whilst we slept elephant visited & hyenas called.. We were educated on not only the birds we could see but listening to their beautiful chatter. Food & service was outstanding & the lodge itself simply beautifully designed & built. Our luxury tent was more than ample for the setting, fitted with in & outdoor shower, ceiling fan, comfortable beds & bedding. We had a nice pvt deck looking into the open unfenced bush. On these trips we saw many various wild & wonderful animals, even had a small run in with an elephant, they setup a special picnic out in the bush which was absolutely delightful. Only slight set back was no signal at camp & we got a little lost heading to base camp.

Covid has shown us that all is not bad, it has made us stop once again and look for the little gems that are a plenty in this country - Klaserie Sands River Camp is not only a gem, but a diamond. A warm welcome awaits you as you leave the game viewing vehicle and you just sense that this is going to be one of those trips that you are going to tuck safely in your heart. The decor has been tastefully done and the layout of the camp is such that each tent maximizes the view. The pool attracts a wide range of birds and loungers have been strategically placed so that you can watch the politics of the bird kingdom. The tents have all the home comforts and more, and for those brave enough, there is an outside shower where you can look up into the night skies, listen to the calling of the hyenas, all this while you wash the days dust off. Meal times are spent around a large table and it is evident that great thought has gone into the drawing up of the menus. Breakfasts are spent around the fire with and you leave on your walk knowing that the staff have something special arranged. Matthew and Morris show you the beauty of the bush and the behaviour of the animals, and on return to camp you feel a little wiser , and have a renewed respect of the bush. Spending time in their company, was enriching. The entire staff make you feel like you are special to them, that your enjoyment and experience of the camp and walks matter to them, and on leaving one goes with a heavy heart knowing that you genuinely will miss spending time with each one of them. I could right pages and pages, so let me end by saying - Go and experience it yourself, you will come home knowing that you have made the magic memories, and will probably start planning the next trip.

We went to Klaserie for our honeymoon and had an amazing time. This was our first Safari experience and it exceeded our expectations. The lodge is small, we were only 6 guests the whole time. The rooms have a good size, we were in villa 2 which had a river view and one day we saw an elephant from our room. Since the lodge is small, the attention from the staff was superb. The owners Lee-Ann and Louis are super nice and attentive at all times. The host, Yami, was amazing and treated us excellent. The food and drinks were 10/10, we were amazed by the level of gourmet food. I’m a pescatarian and they had a different meal for me every time. Also, the breakfast was the best!! The game drives with Elly and Caswell were super fun. We didn’t have so much luck with the animals, we only saw 3 out of the big 5 but we only went for two days so there’s no one to blame. Elly is an excellent guide, she always answered our questions and always had fun facts to share with us. We definately recommend Klaserie, it was a wonderful experience.
