In the cacophony of chaos we call the 21st century, many travellers are searching for a holiday experience that offers more than an escape from the every day. There is a yearning for stillness and reconnection that many traditional vacation outlets are unable to deliver.
Klaserie Sands Safari Trails is the sister camp of internationally renowned Klaserie Sands River Camp. Perfectly blending serenity, luxury and adventure, this exclusive camp offers guests a deep and rich immersion in untouched nature within the wildlife-rich Greater Kruger National Park.
The CampFor adventurous souls seeking an authentic safari experience, Klaserie Sands Safari Trails is a world-class walking safari destination. Built into the banks of a dry riverbed, the tastefully-appointed tented camp is located in one of the last frontiers of untouched Kruger wilderness. Reawakened by the Klaserie Sands family, this breathtaking expanse of land shares an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, with game moving freely throughout the area.
Exclusively available to the camp’s guests and staff, the area is strewn with undiscovered animal paths and abundant birdlife, offering guests the most intimate of safari and tracking experiences. The diverse terrain offers panoramic vistas of the nearby Olifants river and distant Drakensberg mountain range.
At Klaserie Sands Safari Trails, we aim to instil true reconnection in our guest experience – connection with people, nature and self. As such, the camp is located in an area with no electricity or Wifi signal and very limited cell phone signal. 24/7 radio access means that we are reachable in the case of an emergency but we highly encourage our guests to switch off and use the opportunity to experience true connectivity.
Tented accommodationNestled amongst the trees, the tented accommodation is beautifully appointed with soft linens, clothing and luggage racks and en-suite bathroom. Each of the 4 tents features a private timber deck overlooking the riverbed, the perfect spot for an afternoon nap or wildlife spotting. Gauze tent flaps offer protection from mosquitoes while allowing the cool breeze and sounds of the bush to gently lull one to sleep.
Each tent features a ceiling fan, USB charging port, solar lanterns, an en-suite bathroom with both an indoor and outdoor shower and complimentary toiletries. Daily housekeeping and turn-down services are included, ensuring our guests' absolute comfort.
