You could be forgiven for thinking Klein's Camp is expensive - certainly, with our guidebook stating USD 1000.- a night per person, we had no intention of staying here during our 4 WD adventure in the remote Lake Natron and northern Serengeti Area. Fate (and a failing rear diff) intervened, and so we ended up with a great opportunity to learn what high-end luxury travel is all about - and realise the value of it.

Klein's Camp is located high above the plains on a hillside, overlooking the private concession leased by the &beyond group from the local Masai people. At the right time of year part of the Wildebeast migration passes through here, which creates fantastic opportunities for observing wildlife passing close by. It is also just outside the border to the Serengeti National Park, and the more beautiful, remote and less visited northern Serengeti is easily accessible from the lodge.

The philosophy here is to provide a truly all-inclusive experience. Once you're booked in your only worry will be to decide what you want to do, eat or drink. With the exception of some rare wines and vintage champagne, everything is included, right down to Sherry and Port to help yourself to after dinner, and a lovely Scotch in your room in case you fancy a sundowner on your own terrace while watching the wildlife roaming the plains below.

Game drives and walking safaris are offered according to what the wildlife is doing rather than according to Ranger's schedules. In our case, we were lucky to be able to join a drive to the Mara river to observe the Wildebeast gathering just before the crossing - and this also is already included for guests. We could also join a late afternoon drive into the private concession which turned into a beautiful night safari. On both occasions we benefited from the most knowledgable and comptetent drivers and game spotters I've ever encoutered anywhere, and i've been on quite a few safaris.

Accomodation is in spacious "Rondavel"-style cottages, offering every conceivable comfort. Should you feel inspired to paint you will find the relevant materials (complete with easel) in your room, or you could work out with the "gym in a bag".... there is a small terrace outside your room which overlooks the plains of the concession, and it's hard not to indulge in "Out of Africa" style fantasies when you're sitting there sipping a small Whisky and listening to the roar of Lions nearby. Privacy is complete, and you can neither hear nor see any of the other 9 cottages, generator or the work area.

This is an unfenced camp so encounters with wildlife could get a bit too close for comfort for us mzungu - Masai askari armed with spears escort guests between the bar/restaurant area and the accomodation after sunset, to keep everybody safe. Emergency whistles are attached to the room keys - blow it and staff come running to your aid.

The staff is amazing. Over 2 days we also met a number of staff who wouldn't normally have routine contact with guests, like mechanics and maintanance workers. Every single staff member, without exception, was friendly and seemed genuinely happy to be there. Most have been with the &Beyond group for a long time and want to stay - it seems no coincidence that this south africa based company keeps winning prices for things like sustainable tourism and policies that return a portion of the profits to the local communities. I have seen an 4 WD ambulance the lodge purchased for the local community; a doctor and nurse are also supported by them, as well as the local school.

All these things, the physical comfort, the service and the ecological/sociological sound policies, combine to make you feel good about yourself, and good about being there.

I have always been prejudiced against luxury lodges (without ever having stayed in one!), believing them to be rip-offs providing an artificial, unreal experience for the bored privileged. At Klein's Camp, nothing could be further from the truth. Our 2 days there were some of the most "real", most genuine and most enlightening days we've had on all of our travels to date and I would highly recommend it to anyone who can afford it. For everyone else, start saving as it's worth every penny.

Thank you for rescuing us, thank you for fixing our car, and thank you for showing us how wrong we were about luxury travel. We're already saving up for a proper &Beyond holiday!

Kleins was another real highlight location of our safari. I woke early one morning to find three elephants just outside our door. Indeed, this was perhaps our closest elephant encounter and I was in my PJs! Night safari is well worthwhile, and the Masai village visit is gobsmacking. Not at all like a regular village visit - this is like going in a time machine. The staff at Kleins love to surprise you with extras, so pretty much everything you do will be accompanied by unexpected delight. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: It's all good

We stayed at three andBeyond properties during our Kenyan and Tanzanian holiday and all three were fantastic. Kleins has the added advantage of its own private concession and this really makes the difference. No other vehicles except for fellow guests and as there are only ten rooms this is not many! Our driver was Petita and he really knew his stuff! It was fantastic to be able to go wherever needed to get the best sightings. We saw all the big five (the rhino on a day trip into the Serengeti National park that is adjacent to Keins). The food was truly restaurant quality and we wanted to take Elias the chef home with us! He came out and chatted with us at every meal and catered for special dietary requirements with ease. Steph and Marcus made us feel like friends and nothing was too much trouble. Marcus even opened the bar for us after a late night leopard sighting and stayed with us while we celebrated the days game sightings which included a lioness hunting successfully, cheetahs and the male leopard. Kleins does so well the special surprise happenings that have made our andBeyond holiday so memorable but if I tell you about those they will no longer be surprises and that is half the fun! The only negative I can think of is the quality of the house wines included in the drinks package! Well done Kleins-we will be back.

Room Tip: No bad rooms here!

What a gem! I tucked for 4 nights during the rainy season in a virtually empty Serengeti and loved ever minute of it. The stillness and beauty of East Africa during the rains is a very different experience than when the migration is in full swing. Dark storm clouds and dramatic thunder fill the landscape and fill your senses. Storms roll in without warning, and can turn your safari into a rescue mission. I would probably advise against traveling this time of year if it is your very first trip to Africa. It feels more rugged and raw, but dramatic non the less. The birding is outstanding and the leopards were in abundance. Elephants, giraffes, and the famous Marsh pride of lions crossing over from the Mara for a wonderful morning surprise. Each morning I woke up to hot tea listening to the morning chorus on my private terrace. I would scan the horizon each morning only to find herds of elephant, journeys of giraffe, and topi looking over their territory from the termite mounds. This was the best sleep I have ever had in Africa. It was wonderful.

Room Tip: I stayed in room #8...it was perfect.
