Places to visit in the northern Kruger Park
Pafuri Picnic Site
On the southern bank of the Luvuvhu River is the Pafuri Picnic site. There are braai facilities, or you can hire a gas braai. They sell limited refreshments and have clean toilets. The bird life at the picnic site is always good. There are lots of viewing places to view the Luvuhu River from the picnic site all the way to Crookes Corner – about 12km of river viewing..
Crooks Corner was a safe haven during the early 1900s for smugglers, gun runners, poachers, fugitives, and anyone else dodging the law. The confluence of the Luvuvhu River and Limpopo River is where the borders of Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and South Africa meet. For more info click here
Accessible only if you are staying at one of the lodges in the Pafuri Triangle. This spectacular gorge is 150m deep in places and displays ancient rock formations. The views down the gorge are spectacular.
The area is home to the Big5, but it is the 350 bird species and 80% of Kruger Park’s biodiversity in the area that make this northern section of Kruger Park a must on your bucket list.
Pafuri Border Post Camp
The Pafuri Border Post is open every day, however, there is no bridge crossing over to Mozambique so you have to drive through the Limpopo river bed. A 4×4 is essential and crossings are not possible if the river is flowing strongly. The camp is on a small hill above the border post. There are only 3 cottages and have to be booked through SANParks.
Pafuri Walking Trails
Most of the lodges in the northern Kruger National Park offer daily bush walks. You go out with a professional guide who will show you the little animals, insects, fauna, and flora. Inquire with your lodge.
