Our professional guides will share their intimate knowledge of Pafuri, all of its inhabitants and its history.

Pafuri, in the wild north of the Kruger National Park, is unrivalled walking country. You’ll call Return to Africa’s seasonal bush camp home, where they serve fuel for the next day’s trek: rich food and drink in hearty portions. Our experienced field guides open the walking trails from April to October each year, allowing bush lovers to celebrate a rarely-explored place that is as vast and varied as it is wild. The trail offers walkers the opportunity to focus on the little things, whilst also experiencing the rush of adrenaline when you happen upon the Big Five.

On their walks you can expect to encounter an array of changing landscapes, from bushveld to riverine forests, mountains to floodplains, and perennial pans which all attract a spectacular variety of animals and birds. Discover forests of fever trees, groves of baobabs and a diverse collection of wildlife. Highlights of the experience include visits to Crook’s Corner, where the Luvuvhu and Limpopo Rivers meet, Lanner Gorge and the fever tree forest.
