This is what we said as we were sadly leaving! Jason and volunteer Sofie gave us so many experiences of the bushveldt and so much information my head was exploding with joy! We couldn't get enough and would go again tomorrow if there weren't so many other places still to see. The accomodation was individual spacious "cabins" with air conditioning... More

Our Executive Directors & families recently visited Baobab Ridge for their annual "break -away" We had an amazing few days, and really enjoyed the location, staff & tranquil rooms. A special thank you to Sophie, who really made it worth it with her positive & vibrant personality.

My family, which includes three boys aged 8, 10 and 12, stayed at the Baobab Ridge in July 2016 for almost a week. We loved it! There are many reasons to give the lodge five stars... -For a family with adventurous kids, the secured perimeter was key. This allowed my boys to explore the grounds during the day while we...

I stayed for 4 nights and from the moment Brett greeted me upon arrival in the dark until I left everything was absolutely perfect. For travellers overwhelmed by the myriad of private game reserves available, look no further than the Klaserie for high-density game, low-density people, beautiful landscape without the sticker shock of Sabi Sands.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Baobab Ridge Lodge is a private lodge situated in the prestigious Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. It provides luxurious yet affordable air-conditioned accommodation, offering guests beautiful bush-veld landscapes with an excellent possibility of coming face to face with the "Big 5" and bird species in their natural habitat. *This lodge is fully catered and can be booked exclusively for up to 16 guests (ideal for groups seeking complete privacy and no age limits!). *The lodge can only be booked on a self catered basis, if the entire lodge is booked privately, not for individual cottages! Activities at the lodge • Game drives in open Land Rovers. • Walking safaris, please request in advance, subject to availability and not included in rates. Minimum age is 16 years and up to 8 guests per walk. • Rhino conservation events, subject to availability and not included in rates (only available when entire lodge is booked) The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve (approximately 60 000 hectares) is part of the Greater Kruger National Park and open to the Kruger National Park and Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. The private game reserve lies along the western border of the Kruger, with no fencing separating the reserve from the Kruger or the Timbavati; allowing the animals to roam freely between the private game reserves and the Kruger Park. The game in both the Kruger and the neighbouring reserves is essentially the same, the only difference being the experience of driving off-road in open game viewers with professional guides and that this area is known worldwide, as the area the white lions originated from. They are born and live in the wild here, so the gene pool of the white lion is carried within the lions of this area and we have the odd sighting of white lions in our area. The professionally trained guides who accompany you on drives or walks are expert rangers (who are able to do their own tracking!) and are in contact with other lodge vehicles, greatly increasing your chances of finding the wildlife that you want to see. Some of the other game found in our area, are giraffe, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, warthog, porcupine, African wild cat, honey badger, genets, bush babies, kudu, zebra, wild dog, cheetah, pangolin, aardvark, hyena, hippo and much, much more. Birding is quite spectacular, especially during our spring and summer when the migrant birds breed in the area. Hearing the cheerful call of the beautiful Woodland Kingfisher in the Summer, the haunting cry of the African Fish Eagle over waterways or the familiar evening camp fire sounds of hyena, lion, Nightjars and the Pearl Spotted Owlet has such a wonderfully calming effect! (Summer: September - April / Winter: May - August). ... more   less
