In 1969, 36 farm owners merged their land to unite and form the 60,000-hectare tract of wilderness now known as the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. With the conservation of the natural fauna and flora in mind, the move to join together was with the intention of preserving the integrity of this majestic portion of the South African Lowveld.
Now, over 50 years since that momentous year, the KPNR is an extension of the Kruger National Park and the transboundary Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area. It is part of a greater, free-flowing ecosystem that conserves biodiversity, protects endangered species, and supports the sustainable future of local communities. Staying at Klaserie, you’ll be treated to a real off-the-beaten-track safari. Far from the madding Kruger crowds, you’ll meet very few other vehicles when you set off through the bush in your open-topped jeep. This lends the game drives here a really epic, authentic feeling that no longer exists in many other reserves. The landscape of Klaserie is beautiful in its own right, with soft shades of bushwillow woodland rolling off into the horizon and the gentle gushing sound of the Klaserie River in the background. The wildlife viewing is second to none in Klaserie.
As well as the Big Five, the reserve is home to giraffe, zebra, warthog, spotted hyaena, baboon, hippo, impala, kudu, vervet monkey, waterbuck, wildebeest, bushbaby and mongoose! In addition, you may see wild dog, cheetah, bat-eared fox, honey badger, porcupine, aardvark, civet, caracal and serval. Up in the trees, all kinds of birds twitter into the twilight, making it a brilliant destination for birders.
