Experience the tranquility of the African bush and special game-viewing moments from our game-viewing deck and lounge areas overlooking the Klaserie River and surrounding wilderness expanse. Regenerate with a healing Africology Spa treatment from the comfort of your room (subject to availability, advance booking required).

The pool overlooks the Klaserie River, another perfect spot to unwind. From here, a phenomenal amount of birds can be seen and heard in the surrounding trees, along with herds of wild game visiting the waters below. Enjoy listening to the sounds of the African night encircling a fire in our safari-must boma area.

The lodge is located roughly 1.5 hours from the closest airport, Hoedspruit East Gate Airport (HDS) and is also in proximity to a private airstrip for those wishing for a more direct route into the wilderness. The staff are also available on a 24/7 basis with WiFi available at the main lodge and lounge areas.

Program

Ivory Wilderness provides a morning and afternoon walking or driving activity, concluding each day with an early evening night drive to search for the more nocturnal creatures. Each morning and afternoon activity is between three to four hours in length, while the walking trails average between two and nine kilometers in distance, bearing in mind guest's fitness levels and trail activity.

Wilderness trails

Walk an African wilderness trail with the chance of encountering some of the largest and most charismatic to the smallest and most delicate creatures of the Greater Kruger Lowveld.

Being part of a small walking trail group of a maximum of four guests, one can be subtle and sensitive enough to have remarkable encounters with the smallest elephant shrew to the most majestic African elephant.

Walk specific trails with certain wildlife in mind. For example, in the cooler temperatures of June and July, walk pangolin trails, tracking this illusive and mysterious creature when its too cold for them to operate in the darkest hours.

Enjoy walking in the bounty of summer with it's abundance of new life and when the air is filled with copious colourful butterflies. And be entranced by the myriad of bird calls in the morning, beckoning your journey through the wild.

Feel the thrill of seeing from a wild animals perspective, through tracking an Elephant, a Lion, a Buffalo or other wild game along it's path on foot. This is juxtaposed by the peace and tranquility of the breath-taking Lowveld.

For the bird enthusiasts, enjoy walking bird trails and have the option of giving back with fun citizen science bird surveys.

Driving safaris

Sit back on a driving safari, a great way to get closer to some of the larger game and fantastic for photographic opportunities. Driving safaris will also often take you to different, selected locations for a walking trail or to a perfect sun-downer spot.

Night activities

The afternoon safaris extend into a wilderness night drive, to explore the local night life. Other night-time activities include frogging in the summer months and observation of the southern hemisphere starlight sky when you will be guided on the constellations along with the lore and legends that go with it.

Location

Experience the abundance of wildlife that is the Greater Kruger, Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. This vast unfenced wilderness, extending into the Kruger National Park and beyond, is home to astounding numbers of game roaming freely across one of the largest protected areas in the world.
