- Located in Kruger NP
- Luxury tents over Luvuvhu River
- Game-spotting from camp
Situated in the Makuleke Concession of the Northern Kruger National Park, Pafuri Camp offers guests the opportunity to experience game viewing in private and spot over 350 different species of bird with impressive scenic views ideal for couples and families alike.
Pafuri Camp is known for its regular sightings of leopard and lion due to its location overlooking the Luvuvhu River, which guests can observe from the comfort of their own tents. A healthy population of buffalo also inhabits the area, and it is not uncommon for herds of elephant to stroll past the camp during dry seasons. Outisde the camp, guests can explore the plains and its inhabitants through private game drives. These are tailor-made expeditions led by expert guides whose aim it is to bring guests closer to the history and culture of the land, as well as to the indigenous game, than they thought possible.
Guest accommodation consists of 19 luxury tents with en-suite facilities that overlook the Luvuvhu River. The tents are isolated and emerge from the bush. This really makes the place feel a part of the surrounding wilderness and adds to the overall serenity of the camp. There is a communal outdoor pool to cool down in on inevitable heated days, as well as superb indoor and outdoor dining areas and bars, some of which also hang over the impressive landscape.
Children aged 6 years and above are welcome. There are seven family tents that sleep up to four people. Whilst there are no child-specific activities, the myriad of game, freedom around the camp, and swimming pool will certainly be enough to ensure the whole family has a great time.
A fabulous and memorable holiday to Africa and a big thank you to Lisa at Tourdust for her in depth knowledge and for designing our once in a lifetime trip.
The original thoughts were to stay in Cape Town and then go on safari. After many discussions and a lot of patience from Lisa we settled on Capetown, a safari in Botswana and Victoria Falls. It turned out to be the most special and amazing holiday that we have been on.
Cape Town accommodation was great, modern, clean, spacious and close to the V&A. The views at the back were of Table Mountain! We opted for guided tours to Cape of Good Hope and whale watching. Our guide called Chris was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and chatted to us alot and was great with my children.
Next was Botswana and Muchenje Lodge. The location was fantastic with views over the Chobe river. Right from the start we were looked after so well and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We went on lots of different safari drives from early morning, late evening and all day ones and my favourite was on the river itself as we were able to get really close to the elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Our guides were brilliant (particularly Rambo) and helped us to find all the animals we wanted to see, even the elusive wild dogs and leopards.
Meals were at set times, which was lovely as it meant we could talk to the other guests and hear about their day and it was nice that some of the guides joined us as well. We also loved the singing and dancing that the staff did after one meal.
Final destination Zambia and Victoria Falls, where we stayed at Waterberry Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi. An amazing location right on the river bank.
We did a guided tour to Victoria Falls and yet again we had a brilliant tour guide.
From our lodge we did a river cruise, saw a magnificent sunset and we tried our hand at fishing which was great fun.
I would love to go back to Africa again to visit some other countries and I will definitely use Tourdust again. Thank you so much Lisa.

We had a fantastic trip thanks to your organisation! No problems encountered at all! Simbavarti were a joy to stay and explore with; the hotel in Capetown perfectly positioned to allow us to walk to the conference, and Camps bay accommodation was just lovely. The flights, transfers and staff we met along the way we're all very friendly and helpful. Having a car at the end was a perfect finale. My 10 yr old daughter came home with new insights on the world.
I had been meaning on my return to email you, but launched straight back into a weekend oncall and business as usual, so thanks for emailing.
I have sung your praises to friends and family!
