Serengeti National Park
&Beyond Klein’s Camp
Perched on the edge of the Kuka Hills, &Beyond Klein’s Camp showcases un-broken views alongside great game viewing thanks to its location on the return route of the annual migration.
The charming thatched, white washed cottage overlook the wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands, marshes and forested riverbanks which form a vital corridor linking the Serengeti and Masai Mara. You will not need to travel far for some spectacular animal sightings and to learn more of the Maasai culture whilst charming accommodation and a pool-with-a-view ensures you will also be happy to return to your home-from-home.
Facilities & Activities
With sweeping views of the surrounding valleys and hills, guests are provided with hours of endless entertainment, with resident giraffe and elephant often spotted moving leisurely on the nearby slopes, in addition to excellent year-round game including lion, cheetah, leopard as well as many bird species.
Nestled within a 10 000 hectare (24 700 acre) exclusive wilderness concession in the Serengeti , you will find the night drives a real treat. Guided walks up and along the quartzite hills or in game-rich valley end with sundowners served on the crest of a hill.
There is a swimming pool and deck tucked into the hillside for a cooling dip after you have enjoyed a game drive whilst the Safari Shop stocks locally made Maasai crafts.

Evening meals are served in the main dining area, which is graced by a large open fireplace. Fresh vegetables picked from the Camp’s shamba (an organic African garden) create wholesome Pan African dishes.
A large beautifully furnished open-sided bar/sitting area with a central fireplace, just a short walk from the dining room, both with sweeping views of the valley and surrounding hills, makes for a stunning spot to enjoy a drink.
You may also be fortunate to experience a speciality of the Lodge, a Bush breakfast or dinner at varying, spectacular locations!
With just 10 thatched stone cottages, Klein’s Camp provides an experience that is both personal and intimate. Charming cottages showcase local stone and makuti, with rich wooden floors and classic interiors. The bathrooms are ensuite and have a shower, twin hand basins. Each room is also equipped with mosquito nets, hairdryers, in room safe, and a painter’s easel if the stunning views inspire the artist within you. Inspired by the breath-taking natural backdrop, relax on your private veranda with a pair of binoculars, there’s no better place to be.
Children are welcome at the Lodge although children 5 years and younger cannot participate in the regular game drives (a private game drive vehicle would need to be booked). Children aged 6 to 11 years are accommodated on game drives subject to good behaviour! Younger guests especially enjoy the pool and the possibility of spotting the Maasai Herders on their way past the Lodge in traditional dress.
The Lodge has a small number of triple rooms where one child under 16 can share with their parents. For those with more than one in two, opt for the family cottage but book early as this is in high demand! Childminding is also available at an additional cost and bespoke meals provided as and when required. Please note the lodge is not fenced so you’ll be asked to keep a watch out for the children at all times.
&Beyond Klein’s Camp have multiple sustainability projects running, the camp is actively involved in the new Tara Getty secondary school. The school opened on the 11th of January 2021 and educates 1300 students from communities where school was previously a lot less accessible as students would have had to cross impassable rivers during rainy season. Attendance and education success rates are already much higher in the local area.
The Camp is a part of the Lionscape Coalition with the goal to double the lion population in the area by 2050 due to a 50% loss of lion species in the last 20 years.
The Camp are part of multiple more inspiring sustainability projects helping the local wildlife and communities that you can read about in full on their website.
Klein’s Camp in Northern Tanzania is perched on the edge of the Kuka Hills, which straddle the north-eastern border of the Serengeti National Park. The Grumeti River starts its life as a small stream in the hills of southern Kenya just across the border from Klein’s Camp. A few hours drive away you will find the Ngorogoro Crater and Lake Manyara, ideal in combination. Guests typically fly in to Kili or Arusha, whilst smaller airstrips are also available for those wishing to minimise overland travel.
