Klaserie River Safari Lodge

The Klaserie River Safari Lodge is located in the heart of the African bushveld, just
20 minutes from the town of Hoedspruit in the Limpopo province of South Africa.
It forms part of the Jabulani Private Nature Reserve within the Kruger National Park
The Klaserie River flows through this reserve, with the riverine forest and Lodge
gardens providing sustenance and refuge to the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant,
rhino and buffalo) along with a myriad of other wildlife including zebra, impala,
warthog, giraffe and more than 200 bird species.
In addition to providing sustenance
and refuge to guests from every
corner of the globe, the Klaserie River
Safari Lodge offers some of the most
spectacular wildlife viewing in the
Kruger-to-Canyon Biosphere, the third
largest biosphere region in the world.
We offer a supremely relaxing
experience with air-conditioned
chalets nestled among the indigenous
trees on the river bank, allowing every
guest to savour the tranquility of the
wilderness and to delight in the sights
and sounds of the African bush in
perfect safety and comfort.
Each chalet has its own wooden
veranda with spectacular views of
the river against the backdrop of
the Blyde Mountains.
