Hot Air Balloon Safari over the Serengeti

Secluded classic luxury, within a private concession bordering the game-rich Serengeti National Park, &BEYOND Klein’s Camp is steeped in Maasai heritage, and generously rich in spectacular views and captivating year-round safari adventure.

Klein’s Camp is on a 10,000 hectare (24,700 acres) wildlife concession; leased from Maasai landlords that offer guests an exclusive, Tanzanian safari. Perched on the edge of the Kuka Hills, the Camp commands breathtaking views down the valley that borders both the Serengeti and the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya; an exquisite landscape of wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands, and forested river banks, all teeming with the rich wildlife.

Blessed with an astounding year-round concentration of animals and the climax of the Great Migration, Serengeti National Park provides an unsurpassed wildlife experience. Sensitive off-road driving is permitted to allow for close wildlife sightings as well as bush walks and night drives. There are regular lion pride sightings, with no other vehicles around.

&BEYOND Klein’s Camp Activities

Serengeti Activities and Experiences

Exceptional Game Drives

Klein’s Camp offers game drives twice a day on the concession; with welcome sunrise and sundowner stops. &Beyond’s professionally trained guides will ask you about your favorite wildlife and will do the very best to ensure that your preferences are met, whether it’s tracking a particular species or spending more time enjoying each sighting and getting to know the habits of each animal.

The game drives are carefully planned to anticipate the progress of the Great Migration, so you should not have to travel too far to see the vast herds. However, if the Migration has moved off, or the dramatic river crossings are in progress; you may choose to spend more time on the vehicle; in order to maximize your chances of seeing this incredible phenomenon. When the Migration herds are not within easy reach; game drives set off in search of the exceptional resident game here throughout the year.

Night Game Drives

Take advantage of the opportunity to experience our 10 000 hectares (24 700 acres) wilderness concession at night. There is an extraordinary feeling about being out in the remote and untouched terrain at night. The sounds and wildlife offer a unique view of the concession, lit by the glowing eyes of nocturnal residents. Nocturnal animals include aardvark, white-tailed mongoose, serval, caracal, large spotted genet, and curious bush babies.

Guided Bush Walks On The Concession

Examining the often overlooked aspects of the natural world and unraveling its intricacies and simple truths, a nature walk allows you to experience Africa on foot; free from the constraints of roads and vehicles. Watch birds, explore a dry river bed, walk in the footsteps of zebra or giraffe, sit in stillness in the shade of an ancient tree, unravel the stories behind animal tracks, or simply stretch your legs.

Maasai And Cultural Experiences

An adventure to the Serengeti wouldn’t be complete without meeting the enchanting Maasai; in fact, many of the &Beyond Klein’s Camp staff are Maasai, and over 90% of them hail from the surrounding communities. You will get a small taste of Maasai culture on your drives by merely speaking to your guide. Incredibly warm and friendly this lodge inspires interaction and understanding more of this ancient and fascinating culture. For those with a deep interest in the Maasai traditions and ancient way of living; you can visit an authentic boma or take the opportunity to visit a local community, schools, and clinic; in order to understand the real challenges and success of contemporary Maasai life.

Hot air balloon over the Serengeti

Experience the breathtaking beauty of the Serengeti National Park on a ‘once in a lifetime’ hot air balloon flight. At dawn, rise as the sun greets the day and float above the wildlife. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon; sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times you will probably ascend higher to see the vast magnificence and spectacular panorama of the Serengeti. At intervals, the pilot will put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners. In between these burns, there is a tranquil silence apart from the natural sounds below.

A Serengeti balloon safari is an extraordinary opportunity to relish a bird’s eye view of the phenomenal sweeping plains below. Tiny little dots rove across the diverse landscape and as you get closer; you are a spectator to the most magnificent view of dramatically striped black and white zebra, sashaying enormous grey elephants meandering to a waterhole, wiry warthogs foraging in the grassy scrub and subtle swishes of puffed golden tails reveal lions lolling under shady trees.
