Baobab Ridge lies within the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and offers guests an up-market, comfortable, authentic and affordable wilderness experience. This small and intimate private lodge with only seven private suites sleeps a maximum of 16 guests, giving a feeling of serenity, far away from the masses.
The lodge can also be booked exclusively, giving our guests the ultimate private luxury safari. As a part of the Greater Kruger National Park, the Klaserie has no fences between it and the Kruger and can offer guests the full Kruger Park experience in open game viewers. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and its neighbour – the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve – are known for their excellent game viewing.
Family owned and run, the lodge is a home away from home and prides itself on its relaxed, family atmosphere, wide smiles and friendly, welcoming staff. Situated within easy reach of the suites, the main lodge features a bar and lounge area, small TV room with satellite television and DVD player, free WiFi, outdoor terraces, guest bathrooms, a large dining room and an office.
Outdoors there is a comfortable open-air boma area with a fireplace. The swimming pool overlooks the surrounding bush and a small waterhole. The lodge is accessible to wheelchairs and is fully fenced from larger wildlife to ensure your safely.
Guests have full use of the indoor and outdoor living areas and all facilities.
The lodge has seven free-standing guest cottages and can sleep a maximum of 16 guests. All of the suites are raised on timber decks and their décor is inspired by the wonderful African wilderness that surrounds Baobab Ridge and reflects an air of simple, classic elegance with luxurious fittings and fixtures, high quality linen and clean, modern design. Colours are neutral and muted, save for punches of colour and texture, from the warm hues of sunrise to the deep velvet blues of the African night… So lay back and unwind, and let your senses be filled with the wonder that is wild Africa…
There are six superior suites at Baobab Ridge. All feature a range of luxury facilities from a fridge (ask us to stock it with drinks of your choice) and tea/coffee station to wonderful outdoor seating area on the verandah overlooking the African bush and sumptuous en-suite bathroom.
The suites are open-plan with a dedicated lounge with oversized, double recliners and a lovely bedroom area featuring a king-size bed which can be configured as a twin, should you desire. The wonderful, spacious bathrooms feature a fabulous soaking tub big enough for two, two vanity units with hand basins, bidet and toilet and an indoor shower, which opens to the outdoors.
There are three-prong SA plug points for charging equipment with a two-prong plug station available in the lounge area should you need it. All guest suites include a small safe for valuables, a desk with mirror and hairdryer and feature open natural timber wardrobe/cupboard spaces.
THE FAMILY SUITE
This suite is furthest away from the main building and offers the same design as the Superior Suites, except that it houses two smaller en-suite bedrooms.
It is designed for families of two adults and two children (aged between six and 12) and offers complete peace and tranquility, with its wonderful wrap-around verandah affording views out over the surrounding bush.
One of the family suite’s two bedrooms features a double bed and the other has two single beds, which are perfect for children. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom featuring an indoor shower, hand basin and toilet.
Outside on the verandah there is a small table and seating for four people. Inside, the lounge area has a large sofa, as well as a fridge (ask us to stock it with drinks of your choice) and tea/coffee station.
