ABOUT BAOBAB RIDGE

It provides exclusive yet affordable accommodation, offering guests beautiful bush-veld lanscapes with excellent possibilities of seeing the Big 5. Baobab Ridge Lodge can accommodate a maximum of 16 guests.
Family owned and run, this lodge gives guests a place they can call a home away from home in a private and very comfortable bush lodge setting.

ABOUT KLASERIE NATURE RESERVE

The Klaserie Nature Reserve (approximately 60 000 hectares) is part of the Greater Kruger National Park and open to the Kruger National Park and Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.
The private game reserve lies along the western border of the Kruger National Park with no fencing separating the reserve from Kruger or the Timbavati, allowing the animals to roam freely between the Private Game Reserves and the Kruger Park. The game in both the Kruger Park and the neighbouring reserves is essentially the same, the difference being the experience of driving in open game viewers with a professional guide and that this area is known worldwide as the area where the white lion originate from. They are born in the wild and live in this area, so the gene pool of the white lion is carried within the lions of this area
