At the recent Klaserie Private Nature Reserve (KPNR) annual general meeting, it was decided upon to introduce an additional KPNR Conservation Levy. Like neighbouring reserves, the KPNR has had to significantly increase anti-poaching measures, in order to protect not only rhino but other vulnerable species as well. From 01 September 2018, for all bookings, guests visiting the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve will be subject to the below two levies. From 01 September 2018, all bookings will have both levies added to the invoice and will be payable before guests arrive at camp or before guests check out on the day of their departure:
THE KLASERIE PRIVATE NATURE RESERVE – BED LEVY
During the course of a stay at the KPNR, guests will be required to pay a bed levy. The contribution ensures that the reserve remains in pristine condition, and goes a long way to ensuring the reduction of the camps’ carbon footprint.
THE KLASERIE PRIVATE NATURE RESERVE – CONSERVATION LEVY
The new levy will be used to subsidise anti-poaching efforts, to ensure constant improvement of counter-poaching technology, 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 within the reserve.
