Pafuri Camp

Pafuri Camp is situated along the banks of the Luvuvhu River in the far north of Kruger.

The remote 24 000 hectare concession is the largest and most biodiverse in Kruger with many species reaching the southernmost extent of their range here. As much as 75% of Kruger total biodiversity occurs here in an area only slightly more than 1% of its total size.

Sightings of species like nyala, eland, bushpig and Sharpe’s grysbok occur side by side with zebra, impala, wildebeest and warthog and the region’s large elephant herds enjoy the luxury of seasonal migration across the unfenced boundary of the Park with neighbouring Zimbabwe. Resident buffalo and white rhino, and a full complement of large predators, complete the association of megafauna viewed from open game drive vehicles or on foot.

The northern border of the concession is comprised of 30km of Limpopo River frontage and associated riverine, fever tree forests, palm-studded floodplains and unique wetlands. The southern border is the perennial Luvuvhu River and its ribbons of lush riverine and fever tree forests flanked by acacia strewn plains.

Between the two rivers lies a mix of botanically rich sandveld, mopane woodland and scrub, combretum woodland, baobab dotted hillsides, spectacular kopjes and hidden freshwater springs. The biological importance of the area was recognized in its declaration as a Ramsar site in 2007.

The concession is owned by the Makuleke Community, displaced from the area under the apartheid regime, and the camp is a joint venture between the Makuleke and Wilderness Safaris.
