Baobab Ridge Lodge
Safari Lodge in the Klaserie Game Reserve
Baobab Ridge lies within the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve offering guests an up-market, clean, comfortable and affordable wilderness experience. Here guests can have an authentic and memorable bush experience. This small and intimate private lodge with only 7 private suites (sleeps maximum 16 guests), gives guests a feeling of serenity, far away from the masses.
The lodge can also be booked exclusively, giving our guests the ultimate private luxury safari. As a part of the greater Kruger National Park, the Klaserie has no fences into the Kruger and can offer guests the Kruger experience in open game viewers. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, as well as its neighbour the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, are known for good game viewing. Family owned and run, this lodge gives guests a place they can call a home away from home in a private and very comfortable bush lodge setting. Situated within easy reach of the suites, the main lodge is equipped with a bar and lounge area, small TV room with satellite television and DVD, free WiFi, outdoor terraces, guest bathrooms, a large dining room and an office.

The lodge offers Big 5 game activities in the early morning and late afternoon/evening, taking advantage of the time of day that the animals are naturally most active. Nocturnal creatures - including the big cats - are regular sightings at night.
Game Drives at Baobab Ridge are in open Land Rovers with qualified senior guides. The guides are passionate about wildlife and are in contact with the other vehicles on game drives, greatly increasing your chances of finding the wildlife that you want to see. Vehicles may also leave the road to follow animals into the bush and thus provide opportunities to witness behavior and interactions you might not see otherwise. The Klaserie is a Big 5 area, they see lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo and many more in our area! Your ranger will share expert knowledge and information about each species and their behavior. Birding is quite spectacular, especially during spring and summer when the migrants breed.
