My husband and I were luck enough to stay in the Klaserie River Safari Lodge for our honeymoon and we had the most amazing time. In the mornings we were treated to a sit-down breakfast with the rest of the lodgers before heading out in the Jeeps for the morning game drive. The safari drivers were incredibly knowledgeable and did an amazing job of explaining how the animals behaved and what was to be seen in their natural habitats. On one of the morning drives we were lucky enough to come very close to a family of elephants who were uprooting trees to get moisture from the roots, it was amazing to see the power of these beautiful animals.

We then had lunch back at the lodge everyday and got to hang around by the pool frequently visited by giraffes and monkeys looking for a quick drink!

In the evenings we then got to go back out on the game drives and have dinner back at the lodge. One evening, the lodge set-up a surprise romantic dinner for us on the island in the middle of the watering hole which was an experience we will never forget, especially as we could hear a wild leopard not to far away from us!
