As you drive through the gate at Klaserie River Safari Lodge, you will see grazing Wildebeest (Brindled Gnu) and Zebra. Leanne will great you and check you in to your rooms which are actually a bit of a drive down the hill at the rivers edge. The rooms have beautiful porches overlooking the Klaserie River where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine as you are greeted by the resident hippo, Gertrude! Meals are served in a variety of locations all with lovely views and with family and staff. We enjoyed talking to them and learning about different aspects of life in this beautiful part of Africa. The pool is in a lovely spot looking into the bush. One day we were greeted by 3 giraffe as we basked in the warm African sun. I recommend this Lodge highly and would love to return again and again.
Pros: Our field guide, Neville, who took us on two game drives and a bush walk was extremely knowledgeable.
