Description

This trail is an adventure into the wild.  Your trail guide will fetch you from your hotel in Johannesburg or Pretoria, or your accommodation in and around Kruger Park. You will be taken to Pafuri Trails Camp and be booked in on a fully inclusive basis, which includes all meals and local drinks.  Time permitting you may take a sunset walk into this wilderness and enjoy the African sunset from a vantage point. Breath in the smell and listen to the sounds of Africa.  When back at camp you sit around the camp fire and enjoy a drink while waiting for your supper to be served.  
Wildlife viewing from this camp can be rather extraordinary with large herds of elephant located in the area during the dry months, there is also a healthy population of buffalo and is known for regular sightings of leopard and Pel's Fishing Owl due to its fantastic location on the Luvuvhu River.
