Pafuri Camp is a Kruger Park private safari lodge situated on the banks of the Luvuvhu River in the northern sector of the Kruger National Park. It lies within an area called the Makuleke or Pafuri, between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu Rivers. To the north lies Zimbabwe and to the east lies Mozambique. It is part of the Transfrontier or 'Peace Park' that straddles South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
Pafuri Camp actually comprises of two separate camps. Pafuri East with 7 tents has its own dining area and small pool. Parfuri West has 13 tents and boasts a large swimming pool overlooking the river. This area is one of the few true wilderness areas left in South Africa, and when you are on game walks it is not hard to imagine that you are not in South Africa, but in a Central African park. The vegetation is so different to anything else within Kruger.
The area is extremely diverse, with stunning mountains, scenic and deep gorges, including the remarkable Lanner Gorge, forests of Fever Trees and Baobabs, permanent rivers, springs and open savannah. The region is famous for its large herds of Elephant and Buffalo, prides of Lion and Leopards along the river.
The birding is excellent and the wetlands in the area have been given international recognition. You may see rare antelope such as Sharp’s Grysbok and Sable Antelope while on game drives in the area. There are also many historic Iron and Stone Age sites in the region.
