Camp Kruger Park
Pafuri Camp is situated between
the Limpopo and the Luvuvhu Rivers in the northern sector of the Kruger
National Park, in a 24 000-hectare area called the Pafuri or the Makuleke.
This area is the ancestral home of the Makuleke people and is one of the
most diverse and scenically attractive areas in the Kruger National Park.
This area is certainly the wildest and most remote part of the Park and
offers varied vegetation, great game viewing, the best birding in all of the
Kruger, and is filled with folklore of the early explorers and ancient
civilisations. It is well known for its fever tree forests, beautiful gorges
and Crook's Corner, where the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers and three
countries, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique, meet. The region is
considered one of Kruger's biodiversity hotspots, with some of the largest
herds of elephant and buffalo, leopard and lion and incredibly prolific
birdlife. In May 2007 the biological significance of the area was recognised
in its declaration as a Ramsar site - a wetland of international importance.
Situated in the far northern sector of the Park and being so different from the rest of the Park, it complements the scenery, experience and game viewing offered at the lodges in the central and southern Kruger and the private reserves like the Sabi Sand on the western boundary of the park itself. Travellers looking to experience the Kruger in its entirety should ideally combine Pafuri in the subtropical far north with any number of camps in the central parts of Kruger.
Accommodation consists of 20 tented rooms (including six family rooms for up to four people), each with en-suite bathroom facilities. The tented rooms all look out over the Luvuvhu River; guests can sit on their decks and watch for elephant, nyala, waterbuck or bushbuck coming down to drink - to name but a few!
Activities in the Makuleke / Pafuri area are extremely varied and interesting. Game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, night drives, walks, hides (including some that will cater for sleep-outs) are all part of the range of activities that are on offer. One of the most important aspects of this area is its paleo-anthropological history, with its plethora of evidence of early human ancestors stretching back some 2 million years ago, through the Stone Age and into the Iron Age about 400 years ago when the Thulamela dynasty ruled in this area. This dynasty built incredible structures that are not dissimilar to that found in the Great Zimbabwe. Throughout the concession, there is evidence of its human inhabitants, in the form of rock paintings and artefacts - under many a baobab are Stone Age hand tools, such as hand axes, to be found.
