This lodge is a jewel. I have been fortunate enough to stay in many lodges in Southern and Eastern Africa and for me Pafuri is one of the stand outs. The staff are drawn from the community who own the land and this gives their hospitality a very real flavour. The camp is beautifully set on the river bank and...

Not for the ordinary guest- only for people who are curious, enthusiastic and vital - there is so much happening there / full moon walks, up close and personal with the elephant whisperer and her Ellie's, study the history of the Makaleke's - BEYOND

Reviewed 13 February 2017

Situated in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa, the Pafuri region has everything you need to experience true wilderness. Unlike the south of the Kruger the North is quiet and because the Makuleke concession only contains one public road and two camps in 24,000 hectares you rarely see another car when driving the gravel roads. The Baobabs,...

Baobab Hill is the ideal way to explore this diverse and unique area. The laid back style lends to a total immersion into the splendor of the Makuleke Contractual park.
