Family run bushcamp
Baobab Ridge consists of thatched cottages around a small and active Klaserie waterhole. Family owned and run, the lodge is homely, clean and comfortable.
Herds of buffalo
Large herds of buffalo are drawn to the waterhole during the dry season.
Radios & off-roading
Unfenced with the Kruger, the lodge offers traversing over 6,000 hectares. Guides communicate sightings on radio, and vehicles go off-road to follow them up.
The Big Five are present in numbers and you have a good chance of ticking them off during a minimum two night stay. You may get lucky and see cheetah on the plains.
Walking is possible, if organised in advance, subject to availability of trails guides (this is a wild dog sighting).
Seven private cottages are raised on decks, sleeping a maximum of 16 people (if used exclusively, there is no age limit for children).
Each suite is large, air-conditioned and has an open plan lounge with tea/coffee facilities and a private terrace with outdoor tables and chairs overlooking the waterhole.
Cottages have luxurious en-suite bathrooms (but note that the 2 room family suite has only showers not baths).
Cooking & kraal
Cooking is simple and healthy with abundant food. Salads are particularly good at lunchtime. Dinner is on the deck or in a spectacular boma resembling a kraal.
In-pool game viewing
The pool overlooks the waterhole and is enclosed by the low level electric fence that surrounds the camp.
