Pafuri Camp, Kruger, South Africa

Pafuri Camp is an Adventures Camp

Mind-blowing biodiversity in Kruger

Note: Due to unusually high flooding of the Luvuvhu River in 2013 causing damage to Pafuri Camp, the area can currently only be explored on the seasonal Pafuri Walking Trail (April to October)

Pafuri Camp lies on a gentle bend along the northern bank of the Luvuvhu River, under the shade of enormous ebony and nyalaberry trees, in the northernmost corner of the Kruger. 20 en-suite tents (including 6 family units) with indoor and outdoor showers overlook the river. The main area has large decks, an open-sided lounge and dining room and swimming pool. The camp and its walkways are elevated two metres off the ground, allowing wildlife to move undisturbed to and from the river, and catching the breeze moving through the tree canopy. Colourful fabrics and stonework characterise the camp, reflecting the culture of the Makuleke people.


  • Home to 75% of Kruger’s inhabitants – a biodiversity hotspot
  • The birding mecca of the Kruger National Park
  • A place of history – from early humans to modern-day South Africa

A Quote From Our Guests

“ I was utterly blown away. Not only is the Makuleke Concession much quieter than the rest of the Kruger Park, but the diversity of animals, birds and type is vegetation is incredible. ”
