Discover Northern Kruger

Pafuri Tented Camp

Imagine lazing on your private deck, watching elephants follow the sunset towards the river. Hearing your heart beat to ghostly drums on moonlit nights and sensing the ancestors of the Makuleke in the stars and sand. Imagine falling asleep to the symphony of the bush, rising with the sun to join our master guides in open vehicles - or on foot - as we explore wildest Africa.

Pafuri Tented Camp is situated in the Makuleke Contract Park in the north of the Kruger National Park. This comfortable luxury safari accommodation stretches along the Luvuvhu River on raised wooden walkways. The camp has 19 designer tents with en-suite bathrooms including indoor and outdoor showers. There are seven ‘family tents’ that sleep families of four. All the tents offer gorgeous views over the Luvuvhu River. A bush bar, swimming pool and al-fresco dining area offer everyday entertainment, and there’s plenty of space to unwind beneath the branches of the giant trees embracing the camp.

Three delicious meals are served each day and guests are invited to take advantage of professionally guided morning and afternoon game drives to experience the extraordinary biodiversity, scenic splendour and history for which the Pafuri region is renowned. More adventurous guests can opt for guided bush walks where our guides will reveal many of the intimate secrets of the African bush. Close encounters with animals, both large and small are commonplace. 

An extraordinary wildlife experience awaits. Large herds of elephant roam the area together with healthy populations of buffalo, antelope, leopard, hyena and more. Due to its fantastic riverside location Pafuri Camp is also the destination of choice for avid birders and guests are regularly treated to sightings of rare species including the elusive Pels Fishing Owl.



Rates start from R8 800 per person sharing per night and include all meals and two game drives per day on a fully inclusive basis.
