Featured Case Studies

Why "Klipspringer"?

Good question. The Klipspringer is a small species of Antelope found in southern and eastern Africa. Renowned for its surefootedness and agility, this amazing mammal is also known for having astute listening skills and adaptability in even the most challenging situations. Little wonder it was the inspiration for Klipspringer’s company name back in 1999!

Surefooted - Agile - Adaptable - Attentive
