Riverside perfection in Kruger

Wooden decks unfold above riverine grassland at Pafuri Camp, as the Luvuvhu River’s waters flow lazily past. Nestled in the northern edges of the Kruger National Park in the private Makuleke Concession, a safari experience here doesn’t only give guests sublime vantage points from which to view the Big 5; guests are also invited to learn about the history and archaeology of the area. 

The Kruger National Park is celebrated for its wildlife density and its diversity. Over 500 different bird species have been spotted in the park, while the continent’s most recognised predators roam free. Elephant and buffalo numbers are prolific, particularly around water sources in the dry season, while leopard and lion sightings are regular occurrences. 

Pafuri Camp accommodates guests in its Luxury and Designer Tents, as well as their Family Tents (the latter of which can sleep up to four). All tents offer magnificent views of the Luvuvhu River while the main camp boasts a refreshing swimming pool for those in search of a dip. This full-service camp offers guided walks, game drives, and birdwatching expeditions.
