Pafuri Walking Safaris

Wade barefoot through ancient rivers.

Our walking safaris explore arguably the most beautiful area and certainly the most biologically diverse corner of the Greater Kruger National Park, a corner that promises to become the centre of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area.

With low road density guests can walk for hours without seeing any sign of humanity … unless your guide happens to point out a stone age hand axe, a one thousand year old pot shard or a Makuleke era ash midden.

On our walking safaris you can expect to encounter an array of changing landscapes, from bushveld to riverine forests, mountains to floodplains, as well as perennial and seasonal pans which attract a spectacular variety of animals and birds. Discover forests of fever trees, groves of baobabs and palm fringed wetlands, all falling within this extraordinary RAMSAR site. You will be likely to encounter large and potentially dangerous animals, whilst having the opportunity to appreciate many of the smaller hidden secrets of the African bush.

You’ll call our seasonal bush camps home, at one with nature’s sounds and smells, a place to recharge and refuel. A hot shower, delicious food, fireside stories and starry nights before surrendering to sleep in comfort serenaded by whooping hyenas and stirring leaves.

Throughout your stay our professional Field Guides will share their intimate knowledge of Pafuri, all of its inhabitants and its history.
