About Pafuri Rivercamp

Pafuri Rivercamp offers a rustic tented tree-house camp and secluded bush camp on the banks of the Mutale River, a tributary to Limpopo. It is 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 its own ablutions, kitchen, braai area and river frontage.

Enjoy exploring, birding, walking, or just relax in the friendly and informal atmosphere that keeps our guests coming back. Self-cater in the privacy of your own site. Sip an ice cold drink at our bush pub or on the pool deck. An ideal stopover en-route through Kruger Park, Zimbabwe or Mozambique. Come and live in the bush for a while.

                      Wil never recommend to stay longer than one night sleep over. The camp is not good for 6 nights. Had to leave the next day. Hope you use my money to make the place more guest friendly

                      We loved the privacy because even with people in the next door camp we were not aware of them. Wandering around in the surrounding bush we found plenty of birdlife. The entrance road does not create a very good first impression. Two of the camp chairs were fine but the other two were not good. Otherwise we dod enjoy the rustic aspect.

                      What a joy to stay over - it was quiet like the bush should be the staff and Martin were fantastic

                      We had such a good stay at this camp. Each site having its own ablutions was such a treat. It was a truly African experience staying next to subsistence farms and hearing the goat bells around us, while being next to the fence of Kruger National Park. I can see in Summer the boma and pool area must be full of life and fun. We also spent every night listening to and looking for the bushbabies in the trees above us. We felt completely safe and at ease the whole time, and it was only a 4km drive to the Pafuri Kruger gate.
