Access & Location

Klaserie Sands Safari Trails is located in the wildlife-rich Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, one of the largest private reserves that forms the Greater Kruger. As one of the least commercially developed private nature reserves, Klaserie offers guests a truly authentic walking safari experience. The tented camp is located in one of the last frontiers of untouched Kruger wilderness. Reawakened by the Klaserie Sands family, this breathtaking expanse of land shares an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, with game moving freely throughout the region.

The nearest Klaserie Private Nature Reserve entry gate to the camp is Enkhulu; which is 5km from Hoedspruit Airport.
