KLASERIE, SOUTH AFRICA

Klaserie Game Reserve is one of the biggest secrets in South African safaris. This huge 60,000 hectare private game reserve is less well known than some of it's neighbours, but it shares unfenced borders with Greater Kruger, allowing the animals to wander free in a natural migratory way. It’s a wonderful, untouched wilderness for an unforgettable wildlife experience and one of South Africa’s real hidden gems.

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.
