Pafuri Camp

Where bushveld meets riverine forest, and adventure meets conservation.

Escape into the peace of nature at Pafuri Camp, a tented camp on the banks of the Luvuvhu River in northern Kruger National Park. Nineteen suites perched on raised wooden walkways snake along the river’s edge, known for sightings of basking crocodiles.

Retreat into canvased sanctuaries outfitted with private viewing decks, en-suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, and plush king beds wrapped in crisp linens. The sights and sounds of hippos, elephants, and over 400 species of birds will serenade you, for Pafuri rests within one of Africa’s most biodiverse regions.

Community and comfort combine at Pafuri. Spend days adventuring on guided morning and afternoon game activities led by experts well-versed in the area’s ecology and history. At the Bush Bar, swap stories with fellow guests under the sprawling Jackalberry tree canopy, take a dip in the pool, or savour delicious Pan-African cuisine alfresco style.

Whether spotting hyena skulking through riverine forests, glimpsing Pel’s fishing owls, or tracking leopards, Pafuri Camp places you in the heartbeat of Africa’s untamed north. The wildness will call you home and invite you to RETURN.
