Perfect Pafuri – walking in wilderness
Our 5 night walking adventure in the Pafuri region offers the perfect antidote to a life of lockdown and confinement. It is time to break free and enjoy some epic wilderness – a wilderness that is Pafuri.
The Pafuri region lies in the far north of the Kruger National Park, in a vast triangle between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers along South Africa’s north-eastern frontier. Between them, the two great valleys embrace one of Africa’s most spectacular landscapes with mountains and gorges in the west giving way to plains, pans, baobabs and fever tree forests in the east.
Huge herds of elephant, buffalo and other general game congregate here, especially when the surrounding bush lies parched before the rains. Predators and scavengers, ranging from the great cats and hyenas to servals, genets, civets, caracals, amongst many others, find shelter here. The wildlife roams without the hindrance of borders in a transfrontier park that spans three countries. The diversity also brings a profusion of birds, with numerous “specials” to search for in the fantastically diverse habitats.
On this adventure you can expect to explore this untouched Northern stretch of the Kruger on foot, returning each day to overnight at the very comfortable Baobab Hill Bush House. Perched on a secluded, baobab-studded ridge just north of the Luvuvhu, Baobab Hill Bush House was once the Pafuri ranger’s station. This rustic homestead has been wonderfully renovated to provide luxury accommodation for those seeking privacy and comfort in the bush.
This Pafuri walking expedition promises to be a once in a lifetime wilderness experience.
