Pafuri Camp is a 4 star property situated in the Makuleke Concession of the Northern Kruger National Park. About 7 hours away from Johannesburg, the lodge is accessible by road or charter flight. Although the trip can be made in one day, I would suggest breaking up the journey with an overnight stay in Tzaneen as it is long drive all the way to that part of the Kruger.
The camp consists of 19 luxury tents with en-suite bathrooms. There are seven larger tents that sleep up to four people, which is ideal for families. The tents offer gorgeous views over the Luvuvhu River which can be enjoyed from the swimming pool deck.
The full-service camp offers three meals and two game drives daily which are included in the rate. Guests can also take part in a variety of other activities including guided walks, specialist birding walks or exploring the history and archaeology of the area.
Pafuri is all about the scenic beauty however wildlife viewing from this camp is amazing with large herds of elephant located in the area during the dry months, there is also a healthy population of buffalo and the area is known for regular sightings of leopard and lion due to its fantastic location on the Luvuvhu River.
Pafuri specialises in bush walks. Their four-day trails, led by experienced field guides, are open from April to October every year. The trails are renowned for offering bush lovers an opportunity to experience Kruger?s vast and varied wilderness, on foot. The trail offers its travellers a chance to focus on the little things as well as experience the rush of adrenaline when they across members of the Big Five. Home base is a seasonal bush camp near the banks of the Luvuvhu where hearty food and drinks are served in a setting that allows guests to get a close-up experience of untamed Africa. For truly adventurous guests, Pafuri occasionally offers minimalist trails where clients can camp under the stars or travel across the border into the transfrontier park.
Baobab Hill Bush House is the old ranger?s accommodation for a total of eight guests at any one time. It is situated on a small hill just north of the Luvuvhu River, with amazing views of the surrounding area. This rustic homestead offers ideal accommodation for families or friends seeking privacy and comfort in the bush. It consists of four bedrooms and sleeps up to eight people, with a home kitchen, open plan dining room and lounge, a swimming pool, and an Out of Africa veranda, perfect for sundowners or dinners in the early evenings. The property is fenced, offering a child friendly environment. The house comes with a cook, housekeeper, a professional guide and an open safari vehicle.
