Set in the remote northern region of the Kruger National Park, Pafuri Camp is a luxury tented lodge situated in a private concession between the Limpopo and the Luvuvhu Rivers. It's wild, big game country and you'll set out each morning and afternoon in open 4X4s in search of the large herds of elephant and buffalo that concentrate around the rivers in the dry winter months. There are also resident prides of lion and a healthy population of leopards.
You can also explore fever tree forests, hidden gorges and scenic rugged areas on foot with an experienced guide, and be sure to take the opportunity to do some bird watching: Pafuri is one of South Africa's top birding locations and is home to many regional 'specials'.
One of the unusual aspects of this area is its palaeo-anthropological history: evidence of early human inhabitation suggests that the area has been settled for some two million years. The Tulamela dynasty - the original rulers of this area - built structures that are not dissimilar to those found at Great Zimbabwe, and there are also rock engravings, hand tools and burial grounds to be found.
