Safari Enquiry

The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve covers a whopping 600km2 (232 square miles) of wilderness on either side of the Klaserie Rivier just west of the Kruger National Park. You’ll come face to face with the Big Five – lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhinos – as well as some of Africa’s less spotted species, like wild dogs and cheetahs, on your Klaserie safari adventure.

Klaserie’s range of safari camps and lodges cater to families, groups of friends, honeymooners, and discerning travelers looking for exclusive luxury. Families should consider Makumu lodge, where they can book an entire lodge without age restrictions for the youngsters. At the same time, the Klaserie Drift, Senala, and Klaserie Camps offer fully catered or self-catering perfect for couples.

For top-tier luxury, look no further than the intimate riverside suites at Klaserie Sands River Camp or the classy exclusive suites at Baobab Ridge.

Highlights of Klaserie
  • Some lodges host bespoke bush dinners and traditional barbecues at particularly stunning outdoor spots in the reserve. You can even arrange to camp at certain water holes for a truly immersive night in the African bush.
  • A walking safari with an experienced ranger is one of the most exhilarating experiences in the African bush. You’ll see animals from a unique perspective and be fully immersed in the sights and sounds of the environment.
  • Twice-daily game drives in open 4×4 vehicles within the private reserves give you the highest probability of seeing animals. With experienced guides who can drive off-road (unlike in public areas of the Kruger), you’ll tick off Big Five sightings in no time. Some lodges also offer night drives.
Practical Information for Klaserie
  • The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is roughly a six-hour drive east of Johannesburg. Daily international and domestic flights call in at OR Tambo International Airport, where you can catch a connecting flight to a local airport near Kruger. The closest local airport is in Hoedspruit; from there, it’s a 45-minute transfer to the reserve.
  • You don’t need special safari clothes, but neutral colors like beige, brown, green, and khaki are recommended. It makes it harder for animals to spot you and be scared off, and brighter colors attract insects.
  • Prepare for scorching days and bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Depending on the season, nights and early mornings can be freezing, so pack some warm clothing too.
    Ask a medical practitioner about malaria medication before you leave, as this part of South Africa carries a risk. A course of prophylaxis is recommended.
