“Perfect stay...”

We recently returned from a 4 night stay at Nzumba which surpassed all of our expectations. Simply, this was the best holiday / vacation we have experienced and cannot wait to return!

Set deep into the bush, but within a short drive from Hoedspruit airport, Nzumba successfully balances luxury with no shortage of warmth and charm. Even our driver from the airport, despite having visited numerous lodges in the Kruger area, was visibly taken aback by the Nzumba setting as we approached.

The central lodge provides numerous areas to relax and enjoy a drink, including a huge balcony with views of the beautiful waterhole that provides continuous sightings of wildlife throughout the day. The 5 private individual lodges (bedrooms and bathrooms) also have everything required for a relaxing and luxurious stay. Aside from the lodges, the Nzumba camp is surrounded by a beautifully maintained garden, complete with pool and multiple areas to enjoy evening meals under the stars (including a stunning dedicated BBQ / Braai area).

The dusk and dawn game drives provided a private opportunity to see the Big 5, regularly in many cases, and learn more broadly about the bush and the wildlife that occupies it. Across our 7 drives we rarely caught sight of another vehicle, making the safari experience feel even more personal. Werner, our ranger / guide, clearly had incredible knowledge of the bush and impressive driving abilities to get as close as appropriate to the animals, whilst also providing stunning views of the Klaserie landscape. Evans, our tracker, also continually amazed us with his ability to spot wildlife near, far and seemingly through trees!

In between the game drives we were provided with substantial amounts of high-quality cuisine at brunch, afternoon tea and dinner from Rika and her team. Menus combined local South African and European / Asian influenced dishes, with the standard so high that we cannot recall a single dish that we did not enjoy across the 4 days of our stay! There was also an extensive selection of drinks which included reasonably priced spirits and local wines.

Aside from the facilities, game sightings and the standard of food and drink, what really made our stay truly special was the warmth of Werner, Rika and the team. Service levels and attention to detail were first-class, but what made the real difference was their genuine effort to get to know us and ensure that we had the best possible experience. Despite the amazing wildlife sightings and views across the bush, the memories we will perhaps cherish the most are the evening drinks next to the fire or under the stars. We will certainly never forget our engagement night after the Braai celebrating with Rika, Werner and the two lovely pups! Many thanks to all the team for making our stay so memorable!

“Once in a lifetime experience!”

I echo all of the rave reviews included here but have to add that Stefan and Ashleigh were all-star hosts for our family of 11 during our stay at Kitara. Warm, knowledgeable, attentive, and accommodating, these two made our stay luxurious, care-free, and memorable.

Our game drives were incredible and we saw the Big 5 by our second day there! We learned so much about the wildlife without disturbing it and even had an adventurous nighttime ride chasing a leopard with Stefan and Patrick. Werner led our other party and was even able to overcome a language barrier to ensure a great time was had by all. The coffee breaks during the morning rides and evening drinks later in the day made us feel like royalty.

The breakfasts, high teas, and dinners were all 5 stars. Each meal was decadent and some highlighted uniquely South African ingredients or dishes, which was a great introduction to the country’s cuisine. Service was first rate- not only was the staff friendly and professional, but they went out of their way for a vegetarian family member.

Though we spent time in Cape Town afterward for a family wedding, we could not stop reminiscing about our time at the Klaserie Camps. I cannot imagine a better safari experience. A must-do if you are able to!

“Well taken care of for our adventure”

I cannot find the words to express just how great a time we had with Werner and Rika and the crew! But that fits because I was regularly speechless throughout our three days on safari with them. Werner is not only a first-rate guide, but he’s also a genuinely great guy and has a lot of knowledge to share. Rika did such a great job with the logistics and kept us wonderfully supplied and ready for the next adventure. I give them my highest recommendation for anyone looking for the best safari experience possible.

“The best part of our trip to SA - highly recommended”

Once we arrived at the Klaserie HQ, our fantastic guides/rangers Werner and Wiseman picked us up and the safari started right there. We boarded the safari vehicle immediately and started on our journey through the reserve. The animals here are for real in their natural habitat, not imported or domesticated. In contrast to some other experience we had, later on, this was the real thing – the animals walk around freely. We got close to elephants, lions, rhinos etc but the guides still kept us safe. Halfway through the tour, we were able to get out and walk around, looking for lions. This was the most memorable part of the tour, I remember every second of this. Every day ended with a fabulous dinner. It was amazing, I loved every bit of it and if you get the chance to visit Klaserie Camps, do not hesitate, it’s worth every penny and every second. I just wished we had stayed longer… next time!
