The KPNR K9 Experience


Wildlife conservation dogs are deployed to perform two primary functions, firstly substance detection and secondly to track and pursue fugitives or criminal elements.

These qualities are unique to highly trained and skilled K9 units and cannot be substituted by humans orother technology.

The KPNR K9 Experience forms part of a fundraising initiative in support of the KPNR K9 Unit’s sustainability, care, and safety of our dogs. It also demonstrates the important function of the K9 pack-units (dogs and handlers) within the security and conservation frameworks of the reserve. This offers guests the unique opportunity to be part of the action during a demonstration of our dogs’ substance detection and human tracking capabilities, as they locate hidden contraband substances such as, rhino horn, ivory, weapons and ammunition or track down fleeing “suspects”.

For a unique ‘’up close and personal’’ experience in the wild and free, pristine wilderness of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, please contact:

The cost of the K9 Experience is R3 000.00.

Booking is essential, and must please be made at least one day in advance of the experience, and is subject to the availability of the dogs and their handlers.
