Baobab Ridge is a self catered or fully catered private game lodge in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, which is in turn part of the Greater Kruger Park. The lodge can be booked exclusively by a group or family at a time. (Children all ages welcome!)

The Klaserie Reserve lies to the west of the Timbavati covering 60,000 ha on either side of the Klaserie river. It shares unfenced boarders with the Kruger Park and the Timbavati, which allows for the free movement of all game throughout the Greater Kruger Park. The reserve also has sightings of the famous Timbavati white lions (as they are also found in our area), the Big 5, wild dog, cheetah and so much more. Birding is also incredible, especially during the Summer months, when the migrant birds return!

Experience the greater Kruger area on dirt roads in an open Landrover with luxury self catered accommodation. You can experience the Big five in game viewing vehicles with your personal guide, off-road, day and night.

Baobab Ridge caters for groups of up to 16 in seven private chalets nestled in the bush surrounding the main lodge building.

Hear the roar of lions while you sleep, watch the wildlife while you drink you coffee on your private terrace. Baobab Ridge will cater to all your needs in the African bush.

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. The lodge can only be booked on a self catered basis, if the entire lodge is booked privately, not for individual cottages! (The lodge does also offer catering (Additional cost) 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 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. We also get to see the Big 5, wild dog,cheetah and much more! Birding is also quite spectacular, especially during our spring and summer when the migrant birds breed in the 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.
