We've been to Klein's on four occasions and find it to be one of the best safari camps in the Serengeti.
First of all, this camp sits on a private reserve so you have the wildlife to yourself, without a crowd of vehicles trying to get ever closer to a wildlife sighting. The vehicles are open so everyone enjoys a great view and they can go off road to get closer to wildlife. AND... the vehicles can go into the Seregeti National Reserve if that's where the action is.
Secondly, the camp, perched high on a hillside offers magnificent views over the reserve. We have watched elephant, buffalo, giraffe and more just sitting on the deck of our cottages.
Next, the camp itself is superb. Great spacious cottages, a magnificent bar overlooking the valley, swimming pool and more. This camp has always been well managed and this trip was no different.
There's an interesting bonus: Interesting Maasai villages are situated about 45 minutes from the camp. Unlike villages that receive several visits each day, these villages are visted just occasinally but guests at Kleins so there is always a warm connection with the Maasai.
My only concern is that the road up to the camp is rough and rocky -- it's a road you have to travel on each game drive. Fortunately the reception when you arrive is warm and genuine.
We'll be back
