South Africa Exploration: Pafuri Walking Trail

Take a walk on the wild side of the Kruger Park

Take a walk in the private Makuleke Concession in northern Kruger Park, a magical place blessed with exceptional biodiversity, spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife.

This three-night, four-day trail takes place in Kruger’s remote north along paths made over aeons by its animal inhabitants. With one campsite as a base, each day is spent in different parts of the 24 000-hectare Concession, exploring its wealth of habitats, from rivers, floodplains and seasonal pans, to baobab-dotted kopjes, woodland and ethereal riverine forest.


  • This is the most remote and wild walking experience, offering a sense of wilderness and of history.
  • The area is a true contrast to the rest of the Kruger National Park, with life found here that is nowhere else, from baobab forests to herds of nyala.
  • Its unique scenery includes Lanner Gorge, Crooks’ Corner and the Limpopo fever tree forest.
