4 Day Klaserie River Lodge Safari FeaturedGuernsey Road, Klaserie Region
About the Tour
Starting and ending in Johannesburg, this 3-night, 4-day trip will see you stay at Klaserie River Safari Lodge which is located in a private game reserve in the Greater Kruger area, right on the banks of the burgeoning Klaserie River. 11 Thatched chalets are located along the Klaserie River and are blissfully private overlooking the glistening waters which are lined with lush reeds and tall riverine trees. A vast array of life is drawn to the river, from hippos to kingfishers, you never know what you may see from your riverfront balcony. Game drives take place in the Greater Kruger National Park and include a drinks stop at sunset, while bush walks are conducted on Klaserie River Safari Lodge’s private property.
Following in the footsteps of the herbivorous mammals are the carnivorous species of the South African bush. Lion, leopard, hyena, cheetah, African wild dog, and the Nile crocodile are some of the prominent predators residing in the Kruger region. Smaller predators include jackal, mongoose, civet, and genet, among others and you will hopefully get to spot as many animals while on your safari drives with your local guide.
