A day at Kleins Camp
Morning Game Drive
The day starts early when you are woken up for the morning's hot drinks and biscuits and rusks before embarking on the early game drive. Having a little chat with your driver and tracker before the actual trip starts, prepare you for what may be seen and experienced for the day. That also offers the opportunity to let them know what you would like to see that day. During the Great Migration, your guide will attempt to bring you within sight of massed herds. Normally you will also stop somewhere for a cup of coffee or tea during the morning drive.
Fresh from the game drive, and by now a little bit hungry, a wonderful breakfast awaits you with a wide choice of traditional breakfast dishes and drinks.
After breakfast, you have free time to explore the camp and the luxury accommodation offered by Kleins Camp, or you can spend time with friends at the comfortable guest areas discussing the morning's wildlife experiences.
An interesting possibility is to walk off your breakfast on a bush walk in the vicinity of the camp, accompanied by your guide before getting back to enjoy a selection of lunch platters
After lunchtime, take a swim in the camp's pool or indulge in a siesta, then, over late afternoon tea, you can discuss the possibilities that may present itself during the afternoon game drive.
Afternoon Game Drive
Once it is cooler, you set out on the afternoon game drive to see the herds head out to drink before settling down for the night, watch the predators warming up for the night's hunting.
