Senalala Camp (Klaserie Game Reserve) South Africa
Senalala is a beautiful, upmarket lodge in the northern Klaserie Game Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger Park. The guides and management couple are legendary safari enthusiasts and love to share their vast experience and enviable piece of South African bushveld with guests. The lodge offers understated luxury and the focus really is on a relaxed safari experience giving you a deeper understanding of the rich and varied wildlife that make the Klaserie Private Game Reserve their home.
The Klaserie is one of the largest privately owned Nature Reserves in South Africa (approximately 55,000 hectares) and forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park (approximately 2 million hectares). It is unfenced, which both allows for all migratory species to roam freely and increases the area that territorial species can establish themselves, enabling genetic drift. From a conservation standpoint, this provides a benefit for the animals and the people visiting them.
Ideal for visitors looking for a shared lifetime experience, special events, and family gatherings, Senalala offers its guests an atmosphere of simple luxury a world apart from everyday life.Senalala accommodates up to 16 people in eight spacious, air-conditioned chalets.
Five of these chalets feature king beds and a large en-suite bathroom with a free standing bath and shower, and three chalets feature twin 3/4 size beds and a large en-suite bathroom with a free standing bath and shower. With a focus on privacy, luxury, and relaxation, you will feel at home as soon as you step through the gates of Senalala. Our friendly staff looks forward to your arrival!
Set in a huge wilderness area, your visit will be hosted by some of the most professional and respected people in the industry who will make your visit a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With a maximum of only 16 guests, it is an extremely private experience whether on game drive, eating our delicious food, or relaxing with a beverage of your choice in the various tranquil areas of the camp.
Game Viewing & Activities:
Twice daily we take our guests on a game drive (approximately 3 hours long) in open safari vehicles that offer unobstructed views in all directions. The first game drive leaves soon after sunrise, with a stop for coffee or tea and a snack in the bush. The second game drive departs in the late afternoon with a stop for sun-downers, where guests can watch the sun set over the African horizon. After the sun sets, we continue with a drive back to the lodge aided by a spotlight for night sightings.
We are blessed with a diverse array of animal species and will lead you on a fascinating tour through the African bush. The animals roam free, and we get to view them in this open habitat. In exceptional circumstances, we will take our vehicles off-road for special sightings, providing our guests with a unique safari experience and allowing them to get tantalizingly close to Africa’s wildlife. Bring your cameras and you will leave Senalala with once-in-a-lifetime photos to supplement unforgettable memories!
Senalala has a reputation for its team of highly skilled guides, who have extensive experience in leading walking safaris that allow for the opportunity to experience the bush from a very different perspective. This includes studying animal tracks and signs, as well as learning more about the ecology of the surrounding environment. While out on a walk, there is always a chance of tracking and finding animals on foot. This is nature in its primal form – a unique way to experience the bush and a great addition to your safari.
Walking Safaris are done either in the morning or afternoon, as a substitute for a game drive. This adventure lasts between 2 and 2 1/2 hours, and guests should be in good physical condition (able to walk between 5-7 km). The guide has the obligation, for the safety of all guests, to determine whether an individual is capable of completing a walk. The walking is not strenuous as we move at a relaxed pace that is safe in the bush, taking in the smells and sounds of the surroundings. However, at times, it may be necessary to increase our speed in order to avoid certain situations or to position ourselves safely in the event of an encounter with various wildlife.
Your stay includes: luxury accommodations; twice-daily game drives; walking safaris; all meals; a diverse selection of South African wines, beers, selected spirits (both domestic and imported), and refreshments; WiFi; limited laundry; and access to all the amenities. At any time, you can help yourself to any beverage, hot or cold, just as you would if you were in your own home. The only things extra are optional gratuities (for your guide and staff) or Senalala-branded wear. (You would have already paid those pesky levies!!)
