Kateka hosts just 16 guests in 3 Classic Suites, 2 Deluxe Suites and 1 Villa, all beautifully finished with all the 5-star amenities.
With an unusually low density of vehicles, this region of Klaserie sets the ideal scene for a holistic wilderness experience not often found in the Greater Kruger.

There’s nothing like appreciating lion spoor up close, watching a dung beetle push his expertly rolled sphere or patiently waiting for a tortoise to cross your path on a guided bush walk. Smell the sweet scent of wild aniseed beneath your feet, as you follow the quiet footsteps of your guide, crossing over from spectator to participant in the wild ways of the Klaserie.
