We have just returned from a trip to this Concession and stayed at the Pafuri Luxury camp it was a wonderful experience one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. If you are a birder this is definitely your paradise. The Lodge itself was great, the setting beautiful the rooms lovely, we loved our stay with them the staff are well trained and nothing was too much trouble, the guid Zane was very knowledgable and made our drives very interesting. We will most definitely be returning to this camp we stayed two nights it was not enough I suggest a minimum of three nights there. Thank you to all at Pafuri Camp for making our stay such a memorable one.

Experience beyond expectations!!!! The Northern Kruger is often called the Eden of Africa and Return Africa's camp makes it even more special and accessible to enjoy this special place. The wonderful staff and lodge would make you want to never check out and return to reality.

A Special Place. We loved our stay in Pafuri, the staff, accommodation and food were great. Beautiful scenery and very different from the rest of the Kruger National Park. We would have loved to spend a further night there.

The biodiversity, rich bird life and breathtaking fever tree forest makes this a very unique area to visit. Our guide was increadibly knowledgeable and friendly and kept us interested and engaged on all our game drives. The accomodation is real luxury in a tent ensuring you are treated to all the wonderful sounds of the bush at night. Food was excellent and the chef did a fantastic job of accomodating our special dietary requirements in such a remote place - much appreciated! The unexpected benefit of Covid is that we are exploring our own country more and unique places like these have become more affordable for South Africans to visit! It would be great if that does not change in future.
