Our stay in Baobab was out of this world. The accomodation is stunning. The food is so tasty...I def gained a few pounds. The staff go beyond their call of duty and all they want is for you to be happy and enjoy your stay. The game drives were epic. David was our guide and i am convinced he isnt... More

Booked the whole camp for family and friends for my wife's 70th birthday - 12 adults and 4 children ages 12 to18. Excellent service in a lovely relaxed setting. Game not plentiful because of the drought but what we saw was great, including leopard at a kill, lion at a kill, and a family of wild dogs with 8 pups.... More

We had the most wonderful time at Baobab Ridge. We had not been to the Klaserie area before and as such Baobab provided a fantastic base from which to learn more about the area.

Our experience with Baobab Ridge was wonderful from the moment we found and started considering it for our time in the bush to the moment we left the lodge. The experience, staff and accommodations during our three night stay exceeded our expectations and left us longing for more. After looking around the area we decided Baobab Ridge was where we...

We stayed with a family of four for four nights.. Excellent Lodge, excellent service, great rooms, very very friendly, great service, best guide ever seen with David. Food is fantastic, dinner at the fire under 1.000 stars was impressive. Easy and secure to book, easy to reach (also with a "normal car"), absolut recommendable.

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
