Dive Into The Authentic Klaserie Nature Reserve Safari Experience At Baobab Ridge
Nestled in the heart of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, Baobab Ridge Lodge offers a unique blend of luxury and wilderness immersion.
With its quaint charm of only seven private suites, the lodge caters to a limited set of guests, ensuring a tranquil and personalised experience. Each suite is tastefully furnished, offering a cosy retreat after a day packed with thrilling safari adventures.
The lodge's strategic location allows visitors to delve into the heart of the Greater Kruger National Park, particularly the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, experiencing wildlife in all its grandeur. Spot a herd of elephants bathing in the river, follow the lion's roar, or marvel at the graceful gallop of gazelles.
Baobab Ridge is not just about wilderness and wildlife. It's a home away from home, meticulously managed by a family whose welcoming smiles and friendly demeanour add a heartwarming touch to your stay.
The lodge's commitment to comfort, authenticity, and affordability makes it an unrivalled choice for anyone seeking to experience the magic of South African wilderness.
The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve (to the north of the famous Timbavati Private Nature Reserve), a part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa, presents an unspoilt wilderness where wildlife roams freely.
Spanning approximately 60,000 hectares, the reserve is dedicated to a high level of conservation, aiming to maintain the integrity of this wild African landscape. It is home to a diverse ecosystem, teeming with various species, including the "Big Five", wild dogs, cheetahs and numerous other wildlife species.
The Klaserie also invites exploration with its serene rivers, vast landscapes, and the mystical presence of ancient rock art.
The Nature Reserve provides an authentic and intimate wildlife experience, promising unforgettable encounters with Africa's iconic fauna and flora.
Rooms And Suites
Each suite ensures a private sanctuary amid the rugged landscapes, offering unrivalled views of the spectacular surroundings from the comfort of your bed or while enjoying a cup of tea on the verandah.
The décor of the rooms, inspired by the surrounding nature, perfectly complements the majestic views of the African bush. Each room is thoughtfully designed, featuring clean, modern aesthetics harmoniously married to a classic touch. The king-sized beds, which can be configured as twins if needed, are outfitted with high-quality linens, assuring a restful night's sleep. The open-plan design creates a spacious living area with double recliners - an ideal space to unwind after a day of exploration.
The vast, elegant bathrooms boast a luxurious soaking tub that easily accommodates two separate flushing toilets, two vanity units with hand basins, and an indoor shower opening up to the outdoors, allowing guests to enjoy a unique bathing experience amidst nature.
The Family Suite, situated furthest from the main building, allows families to enjoy their stay together while retaining individual privacy. The Family Suite houses two smaller, equally luxurious en-suite bedrooms, mirroring the same design and amenities as the Superior Suites.
Baobab Ridge Lodge guarantees a memorable stay, transporting you to a world of unparalleled beauty and luxury in the heart of the African bush.
Cuisine And Wine
