Towering up above the plains, the gorgeous &Beyond Klein’s Camp sits on the edge of the Kuka Hills offering panoramic views of rolling grasslands, forested river banks and wooded hillsides. The camp is set in an exclusive private concession deep in the heart of Maasai land, in the north-eastern Serengeti. &Beyond Klein’s Camp overlooks a popular route used by the herds of the Great Migration when moving between north and south so that, twice a year, the valley below is filled with a jostling throng of zebra and wildebeest. The rest of the year this game-rich sanctuary is still teeming with wildlife and is famous for its enormous prides of lion, and some of the best leopard viewing in Tanzania.
Penny and the rest of the staff make you feel like family the minute you arrive to the minute you leave. From a relaxing massage to preparing an exquisite meal for you to one of the Maasai warrior guiding you to your room at night. You are truly set in the middle of nature with no fences, and you will probably see elephants and elands roaming the hills right from your own private deck.
There is a swimming pool overlooking the smoky views of distant hills. The camp also features a beautifully furnished bar and sitting area and a safari shop that features locally made Maasai crafts. Fresh vegetables picked from the camp’s shamba (organic African garden) are used to create wholesome dishes. They serve dinners in the main dining area, which is graced by a large open fireplace.
&Beyond Klein’s Camp comprises just ten intimate cottages made of whitewashed local stone and makuti thatch, with rich wooden floors and classic interiors. Each cottage has an en-suite bathroom and private veranda with breathtaking views over the surrounding hills and the valley below. You are set in the middle of nature with no fences and you will probably see elephants and elands roaming the hills right from your own private deck. &Beyond Klein’s Camp is also ideal for family safaris, where guests can take advantage of the Klein’s family suite and little ones can learn about their surrounds with the camp’s fun-filled WILDChild programme.
Activities at &Beyond Klein's Camp
Surrounded by a 10,000 hectare private concession leased from Maasai landlords, there are no limits to &Beyond Klein’s Camp Serengeti safari experience. Go off-roading in search of intimate wildlife encounters in open safari vehicles with a canvas canopy. Only Klein’s vehicles may explore this area, giving you the rare luxury of relatively private animal sightings. Set out for a thrilling night drive after the sun sets. This is when the African bush comes to life with predators and other fascinating nocturnal creatures that are not seen in daylight. Looking to take your Serengeti safari adventure even a step further? Embark on a bush walk (where/whilst your feet) tread in the tracks of zebra and buffalo, your nostrils fill with the scent of crushed wild grasses and you push through the brush and all six senses re-awake as Africa touches you and you touch Africa.
&Beyond Klein’s Camp has much more to offer (please note that these experiences will have to be pre-booked). Try to capture the essence of the Great Migration with your camera by joining a specialised photograph tour. Or meet the Maasai of Ololosokwan and immerse yourself in Maasai culture with a three-hour trip to an authentic Maasai village where they will be invited into a Maasai home for a glimpse into their daily life, visit a traditional boma and perhaps venture to a local school or clinic. The most famous of Africa’s people, these fierce warriors are still practicing their ancestral way of life and are known for their pastoral traditions, living off their herds of cattle, sheep, goats, and donkeys.
Tripadvisor comments &Beyond Klein's Camp
Klein's Camp has its' own reserve so the Land Rovers can go anywhere and don't have to stay on the road. Thus, getting close to the animals is easy. Night safaris are spectacular: we saw a pair of lions mating. Food is excellent and the rooms are beautiful. View is wonderful. Finally, the people are terrific!

Klein’s camp is definitely picture perfect. We are still in awe of the amazing landscapes we were able to see during our time there. Pictures do not it justice! Amazing lodging with views we will never forget. The staff is so incredible. James took wonderful care us and his smile is contagious! The meals were absolutely delicious-Peter is a wizard in the kitchen! Seleu and Laboo were our amazing team (tracker and guide). We looked forward to every outing with them knowing we were in the best hands and would see so much! We were fortunate to see many lions and cubs during our time there-the cutest! Our trip to the Masai village was one we will never forget-the women and children will be in our hearts for a lifetime. ... Asante sana!
