About Klaserie Drift Safari Camps

Our Story

The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve was established in 1969 and officially proclaimed a nature reserve in 1972. In 1994 the fences came down between the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, the Kruger National Park and its associated Reserves. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve comprises 60 000 hectares of diverse topography and forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park. It attracts a vast variety of fauna and flora including the big five.

Formally known as Angela’s, Misava Safari Camp is one of the original and oldest camps in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. It was originally purchased in 1936 by Edwin Crookes and renamed after his daughter, Angela. In 1997 it was purchased by the current owner and transformed into a self catered camp for local guests. Finally, in 2019, Misava underwent massive renovations to become the intimate, luxurious camp it is today.
