    Makumu Game Lodge at Klaserie

    Makumu Private Game Lodge is situated in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. Made up of 6 suites with elevated walkways, the lodge is lit by lanterns after sunset. The warm African textures of each suite’s individual theme celebrates Africa and its unique cultural diversity. The six African inspired suites are situated on a hill boasting uninterrupted views over the bushveld. With a maximum of twelve guests, one can expect personal service, warm hospitality, and attention to detail. Of the six suites, three are King Suites and three are Impi Suites. Each set of King and Impi Suites are designed according to one of three African tribes – the Bushman, Ndebele, and Zulu tribes of South Africa.

    Klaserie is one of the largest privately-owned reserves forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park. With the Klaserie River running through the reserve the location is ideal for exclusive Big 5 game viewing as wildlife gathers around water sources. River access also gives vitality to wonderful birdlife and diverse flora. Klaserie Private Game Reserve offers 60 000 hectares of private game viewing territory with expert rangers and trackers hosting some of the best 4×4 safari experiences and wildlife sightings. Guests 16 years and older can join a riveting adventure tracking big game on foot.

    For effortless game viewing from the lodge’s timber deck, a dining boma is situated above the banks of the Dundee riverbed. Enjoy your meal and continue your wildlife adventure without interruption.
