Amani Safari Camp, Klaserie
Amani Safari Camp is an intimate, owner managed 4 bedroomed Amani Safari lodge located in the heart of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. Close to the camp is the Klaserie River and the dry riverbed hugs the front of the camp. Cliff tops, valleys, rocky outcrops and reed-lined sandy banks attract a plethora of birdlife, small mammals and the big five.
About Amani Safari Camp
Rooms are situated in a large manor house nestled on perfectly manicured lawns and a low lying, unobtrusive fence surrounds the camp. The en-suite rooms are air-conditioned with twin over-sized beds and luxurious linen. Each room has an outside entrance and one that leads into the main lodge area.
During the evening time, guests usually socialise around the campfire or at the open-air thatched bar in the boma area.
Enjoy al fresco dining under the stars. Traditional meals are served while listening to hyena clans in the background. The waterhole in front of camp is mesmerizing and attracts jackals, hyenas and warthog.
The main entertainment area is across the lawns at the poolside where there is a thatched bar leading onto a deck and into the boma where stories and evening meals are shared around the fire
Amani is located in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve which shares unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park and the Timbavati Game Reserve which means wildlife are able to roam freely throughout.
Klaserie Private Nature Reserve forms part of the Associated Private Nature Reserves with no fences between the various private parks and The Kruger National Park.

During the wet season, the vegetation is dense, therefore, wildlife is more dispersed.
