Pafuri Camp is situated in the Makuleke Concession of the Northern Kruger National Park. This comfortable camp has 19 luxury designer tents with en-suite bathrooms. There are seven ‘family tents’ that sleep up to four persons, making this a 52-bed camp. The tents offer gorgeous views over the Luvuvhu River, there is also a communal area with a swimming pool – for those balmy days when you need to cool off.

This is a full-service camp and three meals per day are provided. Guests can take part in game drives in the morning and evening. These game drives explore the history and archaeology of the Pafuri area. Wildlife viewing from this camp can be rather extraordinary with large herds of elephant located in the area during the dry months, there is also a healthy population of buffalo and Pafuri Camp is known for regular sightings of leopard and Pel’s Fishing Owl due to its fantastic location on the Luvuvhu River.

Northern Kruger Pafuri Camp

Pafuri in the wild north of the Kruger National Park is unrivalled walking country. Our trails, open from April to October every year, are renowned for offering true bush lovers an opportunity to experience one of Kruger’s remotest corners on foot.

Led by experienced field guides, you will explore a place that is as vast as it is varied and wild. The trail offers you a chance to focus on the little things but you will also experience the rush of adrenaline when you happen upon members of the Big Five. Home base is a seasonal bush camp near the banks of the Luvuvhu in the wildest part of the Kruger National Park (also known as the Makuleke Contractual Park) where we serve hearty food and drink in a setting that allows you a close-up experience of untamed Africa. And, for the truly adventurous, we occasionally offer minimalist trails when we camp under the stars or foray across the border into the transfrontier park.

You’ll notice how the landscape changes from woodland to riverine forests, mountains, floodplains and pans where animals roam freely. It is here that you will find forests of fever trees, groves of baobabs and vast herds of wildlife. Highlights of the experience include Crook’s Corner, where the Luvuvhu and Limpopo Rivers meet, Lanner Gorge and the Luvuvhu fever tree forest.
