Pafuri Camp Review

This gorgeous lodge stretches for more than a kilometer along the banks of the Luvuvhu River in Kruger's far north. The 240-square-km (93-square-mi) area embraces an amazing variety of landscapes and is one of the few places on earth where fever-tree and baobab forests intermingle. At Crooks Corner, where baddies on the run of bygone days once lurked, a wide swath of sand stretching as far as the eye can see links Mozambique, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. There's great game plus ancient history—more than 1.5 million years ago, early humans lived here, and the area holds stone-age tools, rock engravings, and rock paintings. Pafuri also has the best birding in Kruger: this is the place to spot the rare and elusive Pel's fishing-owl. There's a superb children's program, and special family accommodations provide privacy for parents and kids. The tented rooms face the river.
