Klaserie’s Story

Named after a river in South Africa that flows past Kapama, Klaserie was born on 23 February 2007, to Setombe. She is the second calf to be born to the Jabulani herd, and came into the world just six months after Limpopo was born.

Klaserie is a very relaxed and easy-going young female elephant, always taking things in her stride. The bond she has with her mother, Setombe, is very special, and no doubt where she gets her soft demeanor from. Like mother, like daughter, food plays a very important role in their days. Both of them can never get enough and never know when to stop.

Klaserie is not fond of crowds or wrestling like the other elephants of her age tend to do. But she does fancy group activities like swimming in the dam!

Much like her mother, Klaserie has a larger framed body, more pronounced wrinkles and a slightly pointed forehead. She has smaller tusks than her mother but they are also symmetrically aligned. Her left ear has a small tear at the bottom.

By becoming a foster parent, you’re contributing to the care of your adopted elephant. You’re helping us to provide your adopted elephant with everything they need to be healthy and happy. This includes daily supplemental food like fresh bana grass and lucerne, as well as cleaning and maintenance of the elephant homestead. If your adopted elephant needs any medical support, your contribution will go towards providing them with medicine and veterinary care.

 

We offer different adoption levels. You can choose to adopt by making a once-off donation or by making recurring monthly donations.

 

You can adopt an elephant yourself, or you can gift an adoption to a loved one.

 

All foster parents receive:

  • ● A personalised printable certificate
  • ● An anatomy guide for your adopted elephant
  • ● Access to a private Facebook group for foster parents
  • ● Quarterly updates on your adopted elephant
  • ● A digital birthday card

 

The higher your adoption level, the more special benefits you will receive. For example, Gold and Platinum foster parents receive unseen photos of their adopted elephant each quarter. For more details on benefits, please contact fosterings@herd.org.za.
