Found in the Makuleke Concession of the Northern Kruger National Park, Pafuri Camp is a luxury tented camp stretching along the north bank of the Luvuvhu River. The concession lies in a vast triangle between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers along South Africa’s north eastern frontier. Between them, the two great valleys embrace one of Africa’s most remarkable landscapes with mountains and gorges in the west giving way to plains, pans, baobabs and fever tree forests in the east. Here, animals roam without the hindrance of borders in a trans-frontier park that spans three countries.
Boasting 19 designer, thatched tents, each offering sweeping views out over the Luvuvhu from private decks, Pafuri is a full-service camp offering three meals a day served on the decks above the river. Seven family tents provide the ideal place for those with children. The communal area has a swimming pool, perfect for cooling off on those warmer days, as well as an al fresco dining area and bush bar. Laze under the shade of the trees as you relax and take in your incredible surroundings, or watch as life moves at a slow pace on the banks of the river.
Head out on game drives in the morning and evening, during which you’ll learn more about the history and archaeology of the Pafuri area, not to mention seeing a range of extraordinary wildlife including large herds of elephant (during the dry months), buffalo, leopard, servals, hyenas, the wonderful Pel's Fishing Owl and more. Bird lovers can enjoy specially arranged guided birding walks. The low-lying floodplains where the camp is located harbours an abundance of diverse life. For a more cultural experience, visit the Makuleke villages and let the community entertain you with food, dance and song.
Pafuri Camp offers a luxury tented safari experience in the wild north of the Kruger National Park.
