As a return visitor to Pafuri Camp, once again, all our expectations were met. Situated in the far north of Kruger Park, game drives include visits to Lanner Gorge as well as the Fever Tree Forest and Crooks Corner. Tents are large, clean and well equipped. Staff are professional, friendly and extremely helpful. Food exceptional. Rangers knowledgeable. Will definitely return...

The setting of the Lodge is beautiful. Highlights are the Lanner Gorge and the Fever Tree Forest and pans which are incredible. Lots of different tree and bird species. It is definitely the most beautiful part of the KNP. The staff at the Lodge are very friendly and hospitable. The food is plentiful and good. The rooms are lovely.

It took a while for me to write this review. I suppose I needed the courage to put in writing my feelings about our disastrous 1 night stay at Pafuri Camp. We had been to Pafuri Camp some years ago when it was under the previous ownership. We absolutely loved it and have yearned to repeat the experience. Alas, apart...

Holistically this is the best value for money one can get at an upmarket private camp! From arrival to departure, your every need is addressed. The staff is exceptionally courteous and well trained. Food quality very good! Guide on game drive very well trained and knowledgeable.

My family, friends and I experienced the best 2 nights EVER (10th & 11th) at Baobab Hill House. Having your own place in the bush, your own guide (Mike is INCREDIBLE) and then your food prepared (Ponkie is a STAR) was such a treat. The house is fabulous, private and the location is simply exquisite. Would recommend to anyone

Our Easter week-end was very pleasant, despite extreme heat on one of the days and rain on another. The staff were all friendly, efficient and very accommodating of our requests. The game drives were very interesting in the part of the Park that is a birder's paradise. A great place to book for family and/or friends to spend time together...

Baobab Hil Bush House is one of those magical places, along with the Pafuri area. An interesting fact about Pafuri is that the area has over 450 different bird species. We hope you return.

A great location in the very northern region of Kruger National Park. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfy. Two game drives per day and each well over 3 hours, which is a good time to see any possible animal sightings. The scenery is remarkable and this part of the region has so many trees including the Baobabs. Just...

Thank you so much for your review. Pafuri Camp happens to be in one of those beautiful areas in Pafuri. Being able to have the the Nyala's, baboons, elephants and Buffalo around your room is something many people wish to experience. We hope that you will return.
