Best time to go to Klaserie Private Nature Reserve

The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is a year-round destination. Spring and summer are rainy seasons, with the bush being notably lush and green. Many animals give birth at this time of year, and during summer, visiting migrant bird species can also be seen. Autumn and winter (April to August) are dry, meaning the bush is less dense and animals visit the waterholes in front of camps more often due to water scarcity. Travellers will enjoy warm and sunny days with cooler nights during this season.
