The Klaserie Reserve (KPNR) is a large privately owned nature reserves in SA totalling 140 thousand Acres on the border of Kruger. The reserve was formed in late 1968 and became a nature reserve in 1973 with Mr Necker as chairman and Mr van Vuuren as warden.
The reserve is run by a committee of owners who work with Mr Rowles the chief conservationist to manage the reserve. Mr Rowles updates the owners the general well being and threats to the park.
The Association works with government and surrounding reserves such as Timbavati, Umbabat and Balule Reserve for the greater good of the larger Kruger Park area.
The reserve plays host to the Ground Hornbill which is run by The Fitzpatrick Institute of Ornithology run by Professor Phil Hockey. The other project is the Save the Elephants fund managed by Dr Hamilton and the Tembo project currently studying Buffalo on behalf of the University of Wageningen, Netherlands.
The reserve operates the balance between commercial aspects of the reserve and the surrounding environment.
