PRIVATE CAMP, PRIVATE GUIDES AND PRIVATE WALKS
WE THINK ITS THE BEST BUSH EXPERIENCE THERE IS
Join Callum, Sean, Amy or Devon from African-Born Safaris and explore the wonders of the Makuleke Contractual Park. The Pafuri Triangle constitutes the northernmost section of the Kruger National Park, South Africa, and comprises approximately 240 square kilometres of land. The “triangle” is a wedge of land created by the confluence of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu at the tripoint Crook’s Corner, which forms a border with Zimbabwe along the Limpopo River. It is a natural choke point for wildlife crossing from North to South and back, and forms a distinct ecological region.
The Pafuri region is famous for its bird watching and more than 250 bird species have been recorded in a year. While comprising only about 1% of the Kruger National Park’s actual area, the area contains plants and animals representing almost 75% of the Parks total diversity.
The area has both semi-arid vegetation including numerous large baobabs as well as rich riverine forests with large Nyala Trees and Jackalberries. While game is plentiful, one is most likely to encounter Nyala, buffalo and Bushbuck in the riverine areas and drier adapted game, including white rhino, in the uplands. The area is famous for its elephant herds in winter, which come to drink from the Luvuvhu river.
WHY WE LIKE IT? Pafuri is possibly our favourite place in Africa! It’s wild, beautiful and best explored on foot.
HOW TO GET THERE? Daily flights from Johannesburg to Pafuri Airstrip. A 7 hour drive from Johannesburg.
SPECIAL INTEREST: Pafuri is a bush walking paradise. It is also one of South Africa’s best birding spots.
Pafuri is worth visiting any time of the year. The walking trails only run from April-November, as this is when the bush is the least thick. Contact us to reserve your dates!

“As the wife and mother of two of the Wolff/Geldenhuys Pafuri Trail walkers I just want to express my gratitude to you and African Born Safaris for giving my guys an experience of a lifetime. I have never seen or heard Andre and Craig this excited. As mentioned, we were in the travel industry for many, many years and according to them no destination or experience world-wide can be compared to this trip (and we have travelled extensively). Please will you pass this on to your entire team? Thank you from the bottom of my heart!” – Nicki Geldenhuys
“Just over a week into my safari and I wonder how I’ve changed, if at all. Certainly the experiences I’ve had and things I’ve seen have shaped me in someway. But then, as if by some ancient, unspeakable memory, I remember… it’s in my blood.”
