Led by experienced field guides, you will explore a place that is as vast as it is varied and wild. The trail offers you a chance to focus on the little things but you will also experience the rush of adrenaline when you happen upon members of the Big Five. Home base is a seasonal bush camp near the banks of the Luvuvhu where hearty food and drink are served in a setting that allows you a close-up experience of untamed Africa. And, for the truly adventurous, occasionally, minimalist trails are offered when you camp under the stars or foray across the border into the transfrontier park. You’ll notice how the landscape changes from woodland to riverine forests, mountains, floodplains and pans where animals roam freely. It is here that you will find forests of fever trees, groves of baobabs and vast herds of wildlife. Highlights of the experience include Crook’s Corner, where the Luvuvhu and Limpopo Rivers meet, Lanner Gorge and the Luvuvhu fever tree forest. Departs every Monday and Friday

Early mornings are part and parcel of this adventure, all designed to enable you to have as much time in the bush as possible. The walks last three to four hours, depending on game activity, during which you will follow the game paths that they have been trampled on by both humans and wildlife for many years. This is what has created great oppurtunities to view wildlife. 

A hearty brunch is served once you get back to the camp, after which the day can be spent at your leisure. Around the camp or relaxing in your tent. 

Later in the afternoon there will be another walk, or a game drive (your choice), to spot game and birds that visit the area

Dinner is served once you return to the lodge.

Overnight at Pafuri Trails Camp includes all your meals. 



We're sad to see you leave

The last day its up to you whether you have the stamina or not to go on the last bush walk of your African experience. This is however entirely up to as you will also be more then welcome to sleep in before enjoying a leisurely breakfast before checking out and making your way home.
