North east Serengeti
&Beyond Kleins Camp
Experience the exhilaration that is Serengeti game viewing while staying in a thatched stone cottage in this intimate, very luxurious yet homely lodge with glorious panoramic views. Think cosy fireplaces, leather armchairs, fine linen, candlelit dinners … you can see why we recommend it. (And it’s fabulous for families too!).
Vintage safari luxury in circular stone cottages in a splendid lodge with stunning Serengeti views. Klein’s Camp is perched on the Kuka Hills, overlooking a vital migration corridor in the Loliondo region. Since the lodge is just outside of the national park in its own private concession, bush walks and night drives are both allowed, definitely an added benefit as these are not allowed in national parks. Game drives are taken in the concession area and Serengeti park itself, and the guiding is excellent.
You’re treated like royalty at this small, wonderfully relaxing lodge run by And Beyond, with superb food, a swimming pool with one of the best views imaginable, and a team of staff who want to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. In-room massages take relaxation to another level, and if you want to keep some of those sundowner calories at bay, you can borrow a ‘gym in a basket’ and get to work with weights etc.
The WILDChild programme is a really engaging children’s activities programme to help them fall in love with Africa – activities are selected to suit the ages and interests of the young guests and could include tracking, fishing, making bows and arrows, or local arts and crafts.
Klein’s has close links to the local community, and authentic cultural visits to the Maasai are a must.
Klein’s Camp is one of the most expensive places to stay in northern Tanzania, and tends to attract guests on celebratory trips such as honeymoons or retirement holidays. It’s a place to end on a high. Every effort is made to make your stay very special, and they do it very well indeed.
Times to Go
If a very high class lodge is your priority you can visit any time, except April-May when it’s closed due to the long rains. Your best chances to see the migration here are in around October to November. However, please note that you’re a long way from any river crossing points, so if this is important to you, it’s the wrong choice.

Twiga the giraffe likes this because…
“Klein’s Camp has strong links with the local community – the land is leased from the Maasai and the villager landlords are involved in the daily running of the concession. This has also helped to secure a key wildlife migration route. The guides at the camp also document the movements of leopards and other wildlife. Klein’s Camp has won a number of ecological and sustainable tourism awards.”
And don’t forget … for every booking we get, Tanzania Specialists plants trees in deforested areas of Africa through The Travel Forest, and we back The Tribes Foundation’s conservation and social projects.
