KLASERIE CAMPS – NZUMBA 

Unspoiled Escape in the Greater Kruger National Park

Nzumba Camp, our little piece of paradise, located in the North-Western part of Klaserie Private Nature Reserve which lies nestled between the Timbavati, Balule & Kruger National Park. The private nature of this remote wilderness sanctuary enables our valued guests to embrace, in their own time, the sounds, sights and smells of this authentic African bushveld experience. Devoid of other vehicle activity, you will be able to enjoy exclusive sightings, therefore offering great photo and video opportunities.  A home-away-from-home feeling envelopes you as our passionate team indulges you and our inspired chefs take you on a culinary journey.

Isipho Semvelo meaning “nature’s gift” – this is a reminder that nature’s beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Chalets

Chalets with private verandas are luxurious, fitted with airconditioning, private minibars and coffee stations and flank both sides of the main Lodge. Each chalet overlooks the pool and flowing lawns that border onto the bushveld and a close-by waterhole that is often frequented by a variety of game, making this a true Kruger luxury safari.

ROMANTIC AND COZY

The Heart Of Nzumba

The heart of Nzumba is the main area which entices guests to its various lounges to relax and lie back in the comfortable leather chairs surrounded by memorabilia evocative of the romantic colonial era. The upstairs bar & library lounges lead out onto verandahs which provide a perfect viewpoint onto the waterhole.

THE PERFECT WAY TO SPEND THE DAY

EXPERIENCE ON OFFER

When not lazing on a pool lounger in the garden whilst keeping a keen eye on the waterhole for visiting wildlife, jump on board a safari as we head out twice a day to see what adventure awaits our guests. 

CONSERVATION

Committed To Preserving The Reserve

Guests pay a Conservation Levy as part of their stay which goes to the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve (KPNR) Conservation Fund for the protection of our wildlife. At KPNR we are deeply involved in the full spectrum of nature conservation and it is our philosophy to keep the Reserve as near a pristine environment as possible by centering our efforts on minimising the human footprint. Home to over 60,000 hectares of wilderness we are not only committed to preserving the reserve but also to a number of wildlife initiates, these include the Ground Hornbill Project, Rhino Protection and The Elephant Project.

Most incredible safari experience of my life We stayed at Klaserie Nzumba Camp for 5 days last week and it was absolutely mindblowing. The accommodation is immaculate with beautiful touches. Frikkie was our guide and his knowledge extends far beyond wildlife. He knows so much about culture, history and his stories will leave you in stiches! Andries, our tracker, found us the most magical of sightings with his eagle eyesight (we had exclusive access to sightings so the wildlife were barely affected by our presence). Anne the chef left us wobbling to our rooms like happy hippos with her incredible cooking and Natasha our manageress is exceptional, making sure we never missed a magical moment here. Also, my boyfriend proposed on the second night with a most magical setting thanks to all the staff members mentioned above (and more).

An intimate gem in the Klaserie! We had the pleasure of enjoying the beauty of Nortbern Klaserie with a weekend at Nzumba lodge. Wow!! What an awesome time we had - Frikkie and Natasha together with their friendly staff made sure we were well looked after! An intimate lodge with each meal enjoyed in a new setting, with definite highlights been the bush breakfast and boma dinner. Loved how they surprised us with each new setting! Andries the tracker had the most amazing eye sight and many many happy hours were spent looking for game & learning about the bush! The children were made to feel very special and welcome! Would highly recommend this lodge to those looking to enjoy the bush in an intimate setting! Oh and 2 nights is far too little!

Getaway in the Bush We took the whole lodge on a self catered basis with another family. The attention to detail and quality of accomodation met all our expectations. Our hosts Frikkie and Natasha were world class and Knowledge the chef prepared our meals perfectly giving us a bespoke bush experience we look forward to repeating.

The Best Service in the Industry I have been running safaris in conjunction with Klaserie Camps since 2013. The entire team, especially Lee-Anne and Donovan are an absolute pleasure to work with and are the epitome of professionalism. I can recommend this establishment to any and everyone that is looking for an authentic safari experience where their needs will be taken care of in every way. The lodges are small, well-appointed and meticulously run. As a safari operator, they are my number one choice throughout the entire Kruger National Park region.

A small piece of paradise! We had the best time at Nzumba lodge! The camp itself is perfect for a unique and exclusive, private bush experience! The rooms are beautiful and big with his and hers bathrooms and aircon, a big plus on those hot summer days when it's 35°C or more! Each room has a private patio where we had a great view over the waterhole right in front of the camp. During our stay, the weather wasn't the best but the main building had plenty of space to lounge around but on sunny days we would spend our time during the day at the pool and watching the animals coming to drink at the waterhole. We had the best game viewing with great sightings of elephant, lion, leopard (three different leopards in one sighting!), rhino and an entire morning of following a pack of wild dogs playing around and on the hunt. Absolutely amazing! The great thing about Klaserie is there are barely any other cars around so you can really enjoy all the wildlife in peace. Everyone at Klaserie Camps went the extra mile to make our stay so wonderful! Klaserie Camps has been a favorite for years and we will definitely be back 🙂

Fantastic We stayed for 3 nights at the beautiful Nzumba lodge. It is a fairly long and bumpy drive to reach it but the reward is that you are in a remote and totally unspoilt setting. The game drives were fantastic and extremely informative. Due to its remoteness, you are unlikely to see other vehicles. Food and service were excellent and any spare hours were spent in and around the pool area which overlooks a large watering hole which attracts lots of wildlife. Highly recommended.

Highlight of Our Safari Experience Our family stayed at Misava Camp for 3 nights in September, 2019. What separates this camp from others in the staff - they are simply amazing. Vusi the Head Chef cooked separate meals for our gluten free daughters each day, and was so proud when he presented the food at each meal. This lodge was simply first class.
