All guests need to present their passport to allow entry into the reserve.
Like neighbouring reserves, the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve has had to significantly increase anti-poaching measures in order to protect not only rhino but other vulnerable species as well. As such, the rate for guests visiting the reserve now includes a Bed Levy, which goes towards ensuring that the reserve remains in pristine condition and helps to ensure the reduction of the camps carbon footprint, as well as a Conservation Levy which is used to subsidise anti-poaching efforts, further develop smart fences, pay additional teams, contribute to the cost of all counter poaching flights, and purchase new equipment to ensure the continual protection of vulnerable species with the reserve.
Bush Walks / Walking Safaris
Children under the age of 16 years are not permitted on guided bush walks in the reserve. The final decision on whether a guest can join a guided bush walk remains with the guide and camp manager.
