Pafuri Camp

★ ★ ★ ★

The Pafuri Camp is within the wildlife-rich Makuleke Concession which forms part of the Northern Kruger National Park in South Africa.

From the Pafuri camp itself, wildlife viewing is extraordinary as large herds of elephant frequent this area during the dry months. An active population of Buffalo is also home to this area and guests enjoy regular sightings of lions and leopards due to its ideal setting on the Luvuvhu River.

Accessible both by road and by charter flight, this African-style safari camp features a total of 19 luxurious designer tents. From the Classic Safari Tents, magnificent views can be admired over the Luvuvhu River.

The well-appointed thatched luxury tents feature en-suite bathrooms with showers and basins and offer a comfortable place for relaxation. Seven of these tents are ideal for families in which up to four guests can be accommodated. The spacious wooden deck invites for a quiet time to relax while taking in the natural beauty of the surrounding. Wildlife can be admired directly from the comfort of the Luxury Tent as well as from the viewing deck.

This full-service safari camp provides guests with three meals daily. Breakfasts, lunches and dinner are served at various indoor and outdoor venues depending on the weather. The outdoor boma dinner makes for an unforgettable dining experience in candlelit while listening to the crackling of the fire under the star-studded African sky. Charter flights can be arranged from Johannesburg direct to the Pafuri airstrip.

Guests may participate in the thrilling safari drives which are accompanied by professional game rangers. The safari drives depart from the camp in the early mornings and in the late afternoons and are about 3 hours in duration.

Within the Makuleke Concession of the Limpopo Province, over 350 different species of birds have been recorded making it a paradise for bird watching enthusiasts. Visitors have the unique opportunity to participate in specialist birding walks and drives in an exploration of the archaeology and history of this particular wildlife region of South Africa.

The Pafuri region of the Kruger National Park counts among the best walking safari area of the country. The Pafuri Walking Trails are accessible from April to October every year. It is here where the Kruger National Park's remotest corners can be explored on foot.

Guided by professional and experienced field guides, participants explore one of Africa's vast, diverse and wild places.
