About Pafuri Rivercamp

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.

We spent three days in absolute tranquillity...away from the hustle and bustle of life in Johannesburg...with no electricity we had to resort to sitting around a campfire telling stories for entertainment...the sky was littered with stars brighter than I have ever experienced! Hats off to Koos and his Team - we will be back....

This was one of the most amazing stays we ever had. The tree-house was just beautiful and the whole site romantic and very nice at all and even clean and save. The staff, especially Robert, was so friendly and kind. This is truly recommendable. The only thing we didn't like was the street from Parfuri Gate to the Camp which was difficult to use for a sedan vehicle without damaging it. But that did not destroy the positive experience at all.

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!
