About Kruger National Park
Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.
Man's interaction with the natural environment over many centuries - from bushman rock paintings to archaeological sites - is also evident.
These sites represent the culture, people and events that played a role in the history of the Kruger National Park. You will spend 4 nights in two of the parks restcamps, in the central and northern areas.
About Pafuri Walking Trails
Walk through one of the most remote and diverse places in the Kruger National Park: the riverine areas of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers and secret perennial springs interspersed with rugged baobab-dotted kopjes that jut from mopane woodland. Endless vistas across palm- studded floodplains, acacia woodland and ethereal riverine forest combine excellently with wildlife and bird encounters.
The Makuleke/Pafuri is a true wilderness area and the vegetation is very different to anything else within Kruger. The large trees in this area are usually nearly 50% taller than most baobabs, and scenically, the area is diverse, with stunning mountains, deep gorges, fever tree forests, mopane woodland and open savannah grassland. The area is a true contrast to the rest of the Kruger National Park. Nearly 400 bird species and over 100 mammal species make up some of the more visible aspects of this incredible biodiversity.
