Landowners who are part of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve are passionate about the land, conservation, the wildlife and biodiversity. They established this world-renowned nature reserve in 1972 as part of the Greater Kruger National Park. It all began in 1969 when these farmers agreed to merge their land along the beautiful Klaserie River to form one large nature reserve, therefore conserving the natural state of their land. What tremendous foresight – today Klaserie is one of the largest privately owned reserves in South Africa!
Klaserie landowners aim to keep the reserve as wild as possible by continually monitoring their impacts on the environment. This means that all lodges have a green conscience and are based on sustainable tourism ethics.
Imagine exploring some 60 000 ha of pristine bushveld and all the inherent astonishing species and habitats? Klaserie safari lodges are involved in the Elephant Project, the Rhino Protection project and the Ground Hornbill project. Their Eco Children project educates all children in local communities about their remarkable environment.
Safaris in the Klaserie are richly rewarding and exciting as the Klaserie and Olifants rivers are vital habitats for diverse wildlife during all seasons. These include the big 5 (rhino, elephants, buffalo herds, lions and leopards), hippos and incredible bird varieties.
Klaserie comprises diverse landscapes, from this riverine vegetation to open grassy plains then to lush woodlands and rocky outcrops. Game drives reveal giraffe, zebra and antelope herds, hyena, warthogs, and many smaller creatures. Guests enjoy night drives with a spotlight and the open 4×4 vehicles often drive offroad to pursue a spontaneous event in nature.
Klaserie shares open borders with Kruger in the north and Timbavati Private Game Reserve in the south-east. Bush walks are a must-do at the Klaserie safari lodges allowing the discovery of intricate reserve ecosystems.
