Pafuri Walking Trail

Pafuri Walking Trail is a three-night, four-day walking trail in the spectacular, private Makuleke concession of the northern Kruger National Park. It is perhaps the best area for walking in the entire Kruger National Park and is blessed not only with exceptional biodiversity but also spectacular scenery, seasonally high densities of many large mammal species, a feeling of wilderness and remoteness, and a sense of history. There is no better way to explore this magnificent area than on foot.

Habitats include the life-giving arteries of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu Rivers, both with well developed floodplains and a series of vitally important seasonal pans. Between the two rivers lies a ridge of hills with a network of drainage lines and secret perennial springs to which the area's game is drawn. Rugged baobab dotted kopjes jut from mopane woodland and endless vistas across palm-studded floodplains, acacia woodland and ethereal riverine forest soothe the soul.

This trail is led by an experienced armed guide and tracker. Accommodation is in walk-in dome tents ensuring that guests are intimately connected with the surrounding wilderness and feel, rather than just hear the sounds of the African night - from lions roaring, to porcupines rustling in the undergrowth. The site of the camp is different each night, with trailists walking from one location to the next and having the freedom to explore or to adjust routes dependent on local conditions. This allows guests the opportunity to experience first-hand, the astounding diversity of Pafuri.
