The detail

Situated between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers, the 26 500-hectare Makuleke Contractual Park is the meeting point of a multitude of habitats, resulting in a region of extraordinary scenic beauty and biodiversity. The concession is by far the most diverse within the whole of Kruger with almost three quarters of the Park’s bird, mammal, fish, amphibian, reptile and tree species being found here. The area has also long been regarded a destination of choice for southern African birdwatchers. With an eco-friendly lodge (Pafuri Tented Camp), two walking safari camps (Pafuri Walking Safaris) and an exclusive use house (Baobab Hill House), guests enjoy a curated, deeper safari experience tailored to ensure journeys of discovery for all those who visit Pafuri

Pafuri Tented Camp is positioned along the Luvuvhu River, shaded by the giant trees that overhang the camp, shrouded in the history and incredible biodiversity of the region, offering guests an immersive experience different to any traditional safari location.

Scenic game drives to various points of interest in the concession (including but not limited to Lanner Gorge, the Limpopo Flood Plain, the Fever Tree Forest, the Nyala Berry Forest, seasonal wetlands and Mangala). Bush walks - the best way to experience the forests, floodplains, gorges and kopjes between the two rivers is on foot. Walking this remote and pristine landscape allows a more intimate experience and is the ideal option for bird watchers looking for specials like Pel’s Fishing Owl as well others seeking solitude and wilderness in one of Africa’s great landscapes in an unrivalled walking destination.

Pafuri Tented Camp offers a walking activity from April to October each year (Pafuri Walking Safaris) to allow nature lovers to celebrate a rarely explored place that is as vast and varied as it is wild. Guests staying at Pafuri Tented Camp can pre-arrange to swop out a morning game drive for a bushwalk to explore the concession on foot.

Experience the beauty bush dinners along the Luvuvhu River,and or bush breakfast amongst the giant Nyala Berry trees or a boma evening filled with storytelling by the Makuleke people. Full-day excursions with a picnic lunch,that allow you to venture further afield, pre-arranged with the reservation office.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
