The Karkloof Conservancy is made up of local farmers, foresters and landowners interested in the protection of our wonderful biodiversity in the Karkloof. We have been actively involved in a number of community projects in the area since the re-establishment of the Karkloof Conservancy on 19 March 1998. Projects include Annual Game Counts, Bird Counts, Alien Invasive Plant Control, regular meetings with guest speakers, land care programmes and meaningful environmental education in our local farm schools.

Area 40,000 ha
Established 1998
IUCN Category VI
Address Entrance of Gartmore Farm, 15 km along the Karkloof Road from Howick, Karkloof.
