Pafuri Trails Camp

Why a trails camp and not a luxury camp? 

Our Kruger walking safaris take place in the remote Pafuri region of the Kruger National Park, just south of the border with Zimbabwe. The trails camp that we use as a base for walking safaris is located close to the Luvuvhu River, a tributary of the Limpopo River.

The emphasis on these walking safaris is to experience the remoteness of the region and to appreciate the vast wilderness. We have our favourite luxury lodges and camps throughout Africa, but there is one aspect we all agree on. The more luxurious the camp, the more one disconnects from the surrounding bush. Staying in basic tents brings the wilderness that little bit closer and adjusts the focus from comfort to experience.

THE CAMP

  • Set amongst the trees on the banks of the Luvuvho River, the trails camp comprises canvas tents, each sleeping two people in cot beds.
  • The off-the-grid location of the camp means there is no electricity in camp and shared bathrooms are equipped with bucket showers.
  • Meals are taken out in the open; however there is a mess tent erected in the wetter months.
  • There is no WiFi or cell phone reception
  • There is a generator on site to charge cameras and phones

The tents are basic, but contain all the comforts required, including cot beds, duvets, pillows and lamp lighting. Open-air bucket showers in shared bathroom facilities. Hot water is prepared on request.

 

GAME VIEWING

The Pafuri region is known for large populations of elephant and buffalo, which adds some adrenalin to exploring on foot. Furthermore, regular bushveld plains game is plentiful and with over 400 bird species recorded, this is a birders’ paradise. Unless otherwise requested, we always combine a walking safari in Pafuri with a vehicle-based safari elsewhere, to ensure travellers have the full game experience.

ACTIVITIES

We focus exclusively on walking safaris, however there is a back up vehicle available when required. Game drive can be done from the camp.
