  • A view of the Bush Camp chalet from across the river.
  • Leadwood is one of two single treehouses, nestled in Mutale riverine bush.
  • Tented Tree houses in main camp
  • The Potholes are situated in Makuya Nature Reserve, and are a 20 minute 4x4 drive from the camp.   The ideal spot to relax and cool off during our hot summer (and winter) days.
  • The  view from Sunset ridge, 5 minutes from the camp
  • The Big Tree, largest Baobab in Africa.  Also home to a large colony of Mottled Spinetails, a rare and sought after bird.
  • The Luvhuvhu river inside the Kruger Park, wending its way to Mozambique.

  • Description
  • Facilities
Rustic Tented Treehouse camp and secluded bush camp, on the banks of the Mutale River, tributary to Limpopo just outside the Kruger National Park.

Located in rural Venda, next to Makuya Nature Reserve and 4 km from the Pafuri Gate of the Kruger Park, the lodge consists of five private camps, from two to eight beds per camp, each with own ablutions, kitchen, braai area and river frontage. The bush camp, about 2 km from the main camp, consists of two safari tents and a private chalet, with en-suite facilities.

Choose from exploring, birding, walking, or just relax in the friendly and informal atmosphere that keeps our guests coming back.

Delicious home cooked meals and barbeques are prepared daily or self-cater in the privacy of your own site. Sip an ice cold drink at our bush pub or on the pool deck. On ideal route through Kruger Park, Zimbabwe or Mozambique. Come and live in the bush for a while.

Great hosts, great company, great food and a comfy bed. No electricity and a tent on stilts in the trees on a level with the Vervet Monkeys makes for a truly great experience. Not to be missed!

Pafuri Rivercamp was a lovely hideaway. If you can handle not having electricity then this place is more than worth a visit. The tree houses are brilliant and more than comfortable and the working toilets and showers don't hurt either! The pool and bar area is brilliant and the chef makes a superb 3 course dinner. Would definitely recommend!

What an awesome place.I really enjoyed it there - everything perfectly clean and well prepared. The hosts just make the camp - loved them there!

I had an enjoyable stay at Pafuri River Camp and will stay there again when in the area. I arrived at last light but will arrive earlier in the afternoon to enjoy the camp and its surrounds for longer.

Was only a one night stop so not much to report, was raining very hard as well. Enjoyed the accommodation, rustic and not for those looking for a light switch or mobile reception. Great little pub and ok food.
