Following the vision that was started in 1989, Kapama Private Game Reserve has taken another step to increase the area for conservation by expanding its borders and incorporating a property bordering the Private Reserve.
On the 15th December 2021, Kapama took the transfer of the 11 room Klaserie River Safari Lodge, a neighbouring property on the northern border of the reserve. The property stretches along the Klaserie River and is home to a variety of wild animals such as leopards, lions, crocodiles and hippo along with various types of antelope and other wildlife species that live in the riverine forest along the river.
“The acquisition of Klaserie River Safari Lodge falls in line with Kapama’s vision of expanding the reserve and the removal of fences to allow free movement of all species along with the pristine vegetation along Klaserie River. “Says – Christiaan Steyn – Head of Sales & Marketing, Kapama Game Reserve.
In order to have a minimal impact on the fauna that inhabit the reserve and to offer visitors an exceptional low-density safari experience, Kapama continually strives towards expanding and increasing the private reserve.
It is anticipated that the fences between Kapama and the newly acquired property will be removed by the end of January 2022 and the additional land will allow for the natural migration of animals throughout the reserve.
The Klaserie River Safari Lodge will remain nonoperational until further notice.
