Turning the corner after a perfect game drive we drove into a clearing alight with huge fires, groaning buffet and bar - a candlelit scene from Midsummer Night's Dream as the surprise bush dinner was laid out in all it's glory!Jules Maury
Curl up in one of the huge chairs in the main area and soak in the vast views and if you are lucky you might even spot an elephant or two strolling through the valley below or an eagle soaring over the valley but at the same level as Klein's.Louisa Ross-Taylor

Set just below the crest of the Kuka Hills, Klein’s Camp overlooks the vital corridor linking the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. Twice a year, the valleys below are filled with a jostling throng of zebra and wildebeest.
Sweeping views of the surrounding valleys and hills provide hours of endless entertainment, with resident giraffe and elephant often spotted moving leisurely on the nearby slopes. In addition to excellent year-round game including lion, cheetah, leopard as well as many bird species. Action-packed night game-drives and extensive bush walks into the Serengeti are just some of the activities that guests can enjoy.
The Grumeti River starts its life as a small stream in the hills of southern Kenya just across the border from Klein’s Camp. A thin strip of dense riverine forest is home to the reclusive bushbuck and the rarely seen bushpig, as well as the more frequently encountered elephant and buffalo. Although the huge crocodiles for which the Grumeti is famous do not occur this far up the river, small numbers of hippo inhabit the nearby pools. The woodlands are good areas for browsing animals such as giraffe, impala, elephant and dik-dik. The acacias attract Grant’s gazelle, olive baboon, vervet monkey, and bushbabies. Birds are especially abundant in woodlands, which offer a wide choice of safe nesting sites.
The ten comfortable ensuite stone cottages are spread out along the ridge so they all have spectacular views into the valley. They have big armchairs on the terrace, perfect to curl up and read a book or soak up the incredible vista.
With just 10 thatched stone cottages, Klein’s Camp provides an experience that is both personal and intimate. Whitewashed walls and rich wooden floors, combined with soft cream furnishings, create a calm and soothing refuge from the adventures of the day. Inspired by the breathtaking natural backdrop, relax on your private veranda with a pair of binoculars.
Klein's Camp is not really suited to very small children and therefore only accepts children over the age of 6. Those children aged 6 to 12 years are allowed to partake in game drives at the guide’s discretion. By doing this Klein's camp can entertain children enthusiastic for the natural world, whilst also ensuring that guests without children equally enjoy the peace and beauty of their surroundings. Child minding and babysitting can be arranged for those that require it.
The camp has a large beautifully furnished open-sided bar/sitting area with a central fireplace, just a short walk from the dining room, both with sweeping views of the valley and surrounding hills. There is a swimming pool and deck tucked into the hillside and the Safari Shop stocks locally made Maasai crafts. There is also wifi access in the main area and by the curio shop.
Highly trained guides and Maasai trackers will do their very utmost to delight guests with a choice of activities including twice daily game drives - exploring the endless plains of the Serengeti on early morning and late afternoon / evening game drives in an open 4x4 safari vehicles. Bush walks - in between morning and afternoon game drives explore the African bush on a leisurely walk in the surrounds of the Camp, accompanied by an armed guide and Masaai tracker.
Location & Directions
Klein's Concession, Greater Serengeti, Tanzania
Klein’s Camp in Northern Tanzania is perched on the edge of the Kuka Hills, which straddle the northeastern border of the Serengeti National Park. Set in a 10 000 hectare
(24 500 acre) wilderness concession overlooking wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands, marshes and forested riverbanks, the camp’s spectacular location is in a vital corridor linking the Serengeti and Masai Mara in Kenya.
When to go
Situated on the return route of the migration – mid October to November. Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
