The camp is located in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger Park. Sharing unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park, Klaserie is a Big 5 reserve with incredible wildlife diversity and birdlife, which can be explored on foot and on game drive during safari activities.
The camp is about 2 hours’ drive from the town of Hoedspruit in Limpopo, and is easily accessed by self-driving guests. Eastgate Airport is an hour’s drive away, located a few kilometers outside the entrance to the Klaserie and Timbavati (Enkhulu Gate). Fly-in guests will connect with a road transfer, which will take them to Ivory Wilderness Riversong Camp itself.
Self-driving guests can follow directions from Johannesburg or Hoedspruit and enjoy the easy drive on dirt roads to camp:
*Please note: The road can take up to 2 hours from Hoedspruit, depending on wildlife and road condition once entering the reserve (dirt roads from here on out). Game-viewing begins once in the reserve, so keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, and please be aware of potentially dangerous animals on/near the road. We strongly advise our guests not to follow GPS, and rather to follow our directions and map, as GPS will be misleading.
