Klein’s Camp is a simple, unpretentious yet remarkably conformable place to spend your time. It is, however, the attention to detail and customer service that &Beyond are so well known for that helps make this one of the best permeant lodge choices in the Serengeti ecosystem.


Plan your journey

Location

Klein’s Camp resides on the rocky slopes of the Kuka Hills, bordering the Maasai Mara in the north and the Serengeti in the West. The camp leases the surrounding 10,000-hectare area exclusively from the Maasai, meaning guests at Klein’s Camp have the privilege of enjoying the outstanding woodland valley views of Loliondo and the Serengeti.

Rooms

Ten stone-and-thatch cottages make up Klein’s permanent camp, eight of which sleep a maximum of two guests. Accommodation is well-appointed, nicely proportioned, and private, with good en-suite facilities and a private veranda with great views across the reserve. With whitewashed walls and rich, hardwood floors, the interiors are calming and understated.

Communal Areas

This pared-back design continues into the communal areas, which include a lounge, dining area and bar, all housed in an open-sided timber, stone and thatch lodge offering scenic views of the natural landscape. Communal dinners are held in the upstairs dining room, or on your own private veranda, and guests can expect very high standards of both food and service. Beyond the lodge itself, the gardens contain a freshwater swimming pool fringed with sun-lounger chairs.

Activities

At Klein’s Camp, guests can take game drives accompanied by highly trained guides and game-trackers. Being located within a private concession, Klein’s Camp is able to offer walking safaris as well as morning and night drives. Safaris in and between August and November are highly recommended, as this is when the Great Migration takes place. Klein’s one drawback is that game viewing in the Loliondo reserve fails to match that of the Serengeti National Park, but this is otherwise a very impressive property.

When not embarking on safaris, guests can make use of the lodge’s in-room spa treatments and gym equipment, or simply relax by the pool.

‘SHOULDER’ DRY SEASON

A brief dry interlude before the long rains. The Great Migration takes place within the southern regions of the Serengeti ecosystem during this period.

Its proximity to the equator means that the Serengeti has very consistent temperatures throughout the year. While the high altitude (1,140 to 2,099m/3,740 to 6,886 ft) moderates these to a very pleasant 25°C/77°F to 27°C/80°F, the mornings can still be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a light fleece!

There are two wet seasons in Tanzania. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the milder short rains take place between November and December.

WET SEASON - 'LONG RAINS'

The beginning and end of the rains varies each year, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. Travel to and from lodges is potentially difficult at times. This wet season is often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain. During this period the Great Migration starts to make its way north towards the Western Corridor of the Serengeti ecosystem.

'MAIN' DRY SEASON

A more stable and predictable time of the year, usually with clear skies. During this period the Great Migration will gradually move into the Lamai region of the Serengeti (the northernmost point), as well as the Masai Mara in Kenya.

WET SEASON - 'SHORT' RAINS

Weather in this season can be rather unpredictable, with sunshine interspersed with occasional heavy showers and thunderstorms. Though still considered the wet season, the rains are not as intense during this period as during the long rains. November can therefore still be a great time to visit.

The Great Migration will start moving back towards the Southern Plains of the Serengeti from the Masai Mara. Given the distance involved, we tend to see a more fragmented movement of wildlife.
