60,000 hectares of pristine wilderness

Established with the sole purpose to protect the magic found here, the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve (KPNR) is a place where you will rediscover tranquillity, a connection, and deep love for the wild.

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.

The heart of the KPNR

Doing our part to preserve Africa’s most iconic and revered species.

At the forefront of the Klaserie’s rhino conservation strategy is to dehorn its entire rhino population. Being part of a vast and dynamic open system with free-roaming wildlife, dehorning has been introduced  as an ongoing counter poaching intervention  that requires multi-disciplinary action and funding. The reserve has a dedicated and well trained and equipped counter poaching unit, including a K9 unit and an aerial support wing. The conservation strategy is further supported by an integrated community education programme run through Eco Children, all of which contribute to the overall conservation plan.

Part of maintaining the natural integrity of the Klaserie is to share it with the world, to provide an opportunity for people to connect with a piece of Africa and to see wildlife as nature intended. Originally, the Klaserie had just a scattering of cherished family farms, and today, hidden between its ridges and valleys, a collection of renowned safari camps and lodges, each with its signature style and a story behind its formation. Ranging from celebrated rustic tented camps to award-winning luxury lodges.

“Africa - You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the Hand of God. You watch the lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.”

Supporting the KPNR

The Klaserie's environmental education programme, administered by Eco Children, and the Reserve's committed counter poaching presence, work side by side to conserve natural resources now, for the future.

Simultaneously, running a highly trained Field Ranger team, an effective K9 unit, and aerial support wing requires on-going financial support which continues to place pressure on financial reserves.

Your donations in aid of our conservation work directly contributes towards the sustainability and well being of our beautiful wildlife.

Our Conservation Initiatives
Eco Children is a non-profit organisation initiated by the KPNR, which focuses on hands-on environmental education and whole school development in the communities neighbouring the reserve.

This is an area of some of South Africa's most severe social and environmental issues. By stimulating an interest in nature and improving learning environments, Eco Children strives to have a positive impact on environmental awareness and education amongst the youth in these areas, leading to a better conservation and economic outcome for South Africa.
