The Nature Reserve
The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is part of the Greater Kruger National Park and open to the Kruger National Park and Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. As there is no fencing separating the reserve from the Kruger or the Timbavati; animals are able to roam freely between the private game reserves and the Kruger Park.
The professionally trained guides who accompany you on drives or walks are expert rangers and are in contact with other lodge vehicles, greatly increasing your chances of finding the wildlife that you want to see. Some of the other game found in our area, are giraffe, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, warthog, porcupine, African wild cat, honey badger, genets, bush babies, kudu, zebra, wild dog, cheetah, pangolin, aardvark, hyena and hippo. Birding in this area is spectacular.
