The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve lies to the west of the Timbavati Game Reserve covering 60 000 hectares on both sides of the Klaserie River.
The private nature of this wilderness sanctuary enables visitors to embrace the African bushveld. It allows guests to take in the sights, sounds and smells that make the bushveld such a unique experience. Safaris within this unspoilt region of the Greater Kruger National Park focus on the bush and its ecosystems.
Klaserie is part of an exclusive, privately-owned wildlife sanctuary. The area is renowned for the big five and incredible game viewing opportunities and guests can expect to see lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo as well as an abundance of plains game and incredible birdlife.
The Klaserie has some excellent safari camps, and Africa on Foot and nThambo Tree Camp are without doubt two of the best. Africa on Foot is a rustic bush camp, offering guests exhilirating walking safaris. In addition to proper walking safaris in the Kruger, Africa on Foot also takes guests on afternoon game drives and night drives. It all adds up to a special safari experience.
nThambo Tree Camp is another gem in the Klaserie. The camp offers very comfortable, solar powered tree house chalets in the bush. The camp is very light and allows guests to really feel "part of the bush". Guests are guided by expert rangers, and with it being the sister camp of Africa on Foot, guests staying at nThambo are also offered special walking safaris after their morning game drive.
