In the 'hood, Klaserie as a destination

Bordering the Timbavati Game Reserve and Kruger National Park, this reserve is hot and dry for most of the year. The bush is sparse but soon recovers, if and when summer rains arrive. Game wanders freely over vast areas and you are likely to see all the usual animals of the African bush like lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and many antelopes.

Directions to nThambo Tree Camp

From Johannesburg/Pretoria
Take the N12 or N4 highway to Witbank / eMalahleni (from Johannesburg Airport, follow signs to Boksburg to find the N12). Follow the N4 highway past Middleburg (Toll Plaza), Belfast and Machadodorp (Toll Plaza). Follow the Schoemanskloof option on the N4 and then take the R36 to Lydenburg/Mashishing.

Follow the R36 to Ohrigstad, go through the Strydom Tunnel and take the R527 to Hoedspruit. Turn right onto the R40 towards Klaserie, and continue along this road until you see the turning off to the left for Eastgate Airport. Turn left here and after 300m you will go through a control gate and then head directly for the Timbavati Game Reserve Gate. 17km later look out for Josmacs Bush Pub on your right hand side. In front of you now will be the new Timbavati Gate. Right opposite Josmacs and to the left of the Timbavati Gate is the turn off left (dirt road) for the Klaserie Game Reserve and the Incheni Gate. Take this turn off left and drive straight until you come to the Incheni Gate. Do not turn off anywhere until you get to the Incheni Gate.

Once at the gate, give the gatekeeper your details, and turn immediately right (i.e. like after 5-10 metres after entering the gate and before the little hut) and then follow that road with the fence on your right. The road will fork into three, and the fence line will end at the same time, take the middle road and follow the sign marked as “Africa on Foot Camp”. Drive along this straight dirt road until you see the next “Africa on Foot Camp” sign. Turn left here and then turn left again at the next nThambo Tree Camp sign board.

Do not get out of your car until you reach the lodge. You may see some wildlife on your way - if you do, slow down and maintain a good distance. Do not drive off-road in any circumstances.
