Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Seriously. It's remote. It will to take you 45 minutes to get to camp from Pafuri Gate or 90 minutes from Punda Maria Gate. And hurry because you have to be in camp by Kruger gate closing times.

Phew! You made it. Bags down. Relax. Wildlife, birdlife, good life. This place is unfenced. Watch the wildlife flow.

Hearsay has it that this is the best birding bit of Kruger Park. But then. Hearsay evidence is not admissible in a court of law. Fair enough. Although we're fairly sure it's a fair assessment and besides we're not in a court of law. Anyway. What we know for sure is you will see birds. Lots of them. And this is the largest private concession in the Kruger Park. Indeed. And Pafuri Camp sure has fine looking tents. Fact.

Pafuri has luxury safari tents enough for 52 people. All with en-suite bathrooms and views of the Luvuvhu River. The tents have fans, outdoor showers and extra length king size beds?? In a tent? Yup. Luxury luxury here we come.

Seven are Family Tents which sleep up to four. You can walk through to a separate children's bedroom with twin beds and mosquito nets.

This is the land of game drives and this place is no exception. You’ll be driven day and night in open 4x4 vehicles. The Makuleke concession set is one of the few true wilderness areas left in South Africa. Large herds of elephant and buffalo wander most of the year round.

You could see hippo, crocodile, eland, grysbok, lion, elephant, etc etc etc.

At night you could see lesser bush babies, genet and civet. Or lion. Feasting. On that lesser bush baby. Oh.

Children under 6 are not allowed on game activities, and children under 12 can't join walking safaris.

For the walking safaris you travel with an armed game ranger. For peace of mind.

Birdwatching is popular here too. Not surprising considering there are over 350 species. You may see Pel's fishing owl, wattle eyed flycatcher, African crowned eagle and racket-tailed roller.

Birding game drives and bush walks with a knowledgeable guide can be easily arranged.
If you're into history and culture this area rocks. Literally. Rock art, hand tools, relics of life of Stone Age man.

Or visit a Makuleke village and experience local culture through a traditional meal, dancing and Sangoma (healer) visit.
