Directions to Pafuri Wilderness Camp
Pafuri Camp belongs to Wilderness Adventures, and lies on a gentle bend along the northern bank of the Luvuvhu River, under the shade of enormous ebony and nyala berry trees, in the northernmost sector of the Kruger National Park. This part of the Kruger is known for its incredible scenery and biodiversity. Activities revolve around game drives, walks and birding trips and guests can also visit the traditional Makuleke Village to learn more about the people whose partnership with Pafuri Camp and eco-tourism has allowed this beautiful wilderness area to thrive.
Look and feel
* The camp is divided into two areas: Pafuri East with 7 tents and Pafuri West with 13 Meru-style tents, all en-suite with both indoor and outdoor showers
* 6 of these are family tents accommodating a family of 4 each
* Tents are raised on platforms to catch the breeze and connected via elevated walkways so that wildlife can move undisturbed to and from the river
* The main deck, swimming pool, dining and lounge areas are open to the river view, and a lower-level terrace is perfect for watching the sunrise
* Colourful fabrics and stonework reflect the culture of Makuleke people
* For a more private experience, parties and families can book sole use of Pafuri East, which includes its own dining area and small pool
Pafuri Camp is located in the 24 000ha Makuleke Concession – the largest private concession in the Kruger Park, between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers. This is one of the most scenic areas in the Kruger, its legendary biodiversity (75% of all species found in Kruger recorded here) featuring nearly 400 bird species and over 100 mammal species. The Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers host the highest density of nyala in Kruger and species such as eland, Sharpe's grysbok and yellow-spotted rock dassie, which are difficult to find further south in the Park, are regularly seen here.
The Pafuri region is famous for the large herds of elephant and buffalo that are resident most of the year round, while general game includes impala, greater kudu, chacma baboon, waterbuck, warthog and perhaps grey duiker or bushbuck. On the easternmost boundary at “Crooks’ Corner” the Luvuvhu supports a large population of hippo and crocodile. Predators include lion, leopard and occasional sightings of wild dog. Recently, and excitingly, species such as wildebeest and white rhino have been relocated to the area, from which they have been locally extinct for almost a century.
This is a birder’s Mecca with some species found nowhere else in South Africa and a high level of endemism. Some species are found nowhere else in South Africa and the serious birder will revel in being able to find Böhm's and Mottled spinetails, racket-tailed roller, three-banded courser and southern hyliota. Other specials are black-throated wattle-eye, Pel's fishing-owl, yellow white-eye, Meve's starling and tropical boubou.
