  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

Corrie and Colleen where great hosts. They went the extra mile for our daughter's marriage wows. I would recommend this venue to anyone.

Nice to be out at fresh air, right around the Pafuri Camp. Great Animal sightings at night like Gennet and Bushbaby.

A very rustic camp that is such a wonderfull break away from the hustle and bustle of the big city life. Martin and Elle is such wonderful hosts and is a real inspiration for young people to take on a life of seclution out in a area with very little ameanaties and luxuries. Chef Robert is the best that their ease and prepared the most wonderful meals, he is a true asset to the camp.

We had a wonderful stay at Pafuri. Our four teens loved the treehouses although the mattresses could be a bit thicker. The adults in our group thought the setting, swimming pool, boma and evening meals excellent. We all enjoyed the magic of a true bush experience with no electricity. A true escape. Visiting the northern most part of the Kruger Park meant we saw baobabs, leopard, nyala buck and few other cars. Our group of eight all thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay.
