Package Itinerary

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 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.

The camp is set up in the shade of enormous trees at one of a number of campsites on the concession. Comfortable walk-in dome tents with separate hot bucket showers and 'eco-loos' accommodate a maximum of eight trailists. At night, lanterns and a crackling fire light the camp and create a convivial atmosphere with a light eco-footprint; guests dine under the stars.

Using the campsite as a base, each day is spent in different parts of the surrounding area, walking along the pathways made over the years by its animal inhabitants and following their tracks. Walks are led by an experienced, armed guide.

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.

 


 

Please note: 

  • Pafuri Walking Trails departs every Monday and Friday between 1 April and 31 October.
  • Highly recommended: Spend a night at Pafuri Camp before or after the Trail.

 

Regarded as the best walking area in the Kruger National Park, the Makuleke Concession, or Pafuri, is blessed with exceptional biodiversity and scenery. Using the camp site as a base, each day is spent in different parts of the surrounding area, walking along pathways made over the years by its animal inhabitants. Access to sites of phenomenal scenic and historical value as well as abundant game, spectacular scenery, a sense of history and a true feeling of wilderness characterises this Exploration. Wildlife includes nyala, buffalo herds, and seasonal elephant; more elusive residents of the area are white rhino, lion and leopard. For the keen birder, the Pafuri Walking Trail is a must.
