Pafuri Walking Trails | Walking Safaris Highlights

The Pafuri area of the Kruger National Park is in the extreme north of the park, bordering Zimbabwe. This part of the Kruger offers dramatic scenery, from high cliffs overlooking rivers to a lime green Fever Tree Forest. Exploring the Pafuri on foot is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the smaller animals that live in the area and enjoy encounters with the Big 5 as well.

Pafuri Walking Trails | Walking Safaris Game Viewing and Activities

Walking safaris in the morning and evening are the focus of the Pafuri Walking Trails. Guests will need to be able to walk between 5 and 10 km’s daily. It is famous for the large herds of elephant and buffalo that are resident most of the year round. Cheetah has been sighted hunting the strong population of nyala and impala that live alongside the Luvuvhu system. On the easternmost boundary at "Crooks Corner" the Luvuvhu supports a large population of hippo and crocodile. The Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers host the highest density of nyala in Kruger and species such as eland, Sharpe's grysbok and yellow-spotted rock dassie, which are difficult to find further south in the Park, are regularly seen here. A walk along the floodplain and riverine fringe of either of the two large rivers usually produces good general game in the form of nyala, impala, greater kudu, chacma baboon, waterbuck, warthog and perhaps grey duiker or bushbuck, while careful searching may yield the more elusive residents of the area such as lion and leopard. Other areas hold steenbok, klipspringer and herds of Burchell's zebra. The area has long been regarded as something of a Mecca for southern African birdwatchers. Some species are found nowhere else in South Africa and the serious birder will revel in being able to find Böhm's and Mottled Spinetails, Racket- Tailed Roller, Three-Banded Courser, and Southern Hyliota. Other specials are Black-Throated Wattle-Eye, Pel's Fishing Owl, Yellow White- Eye, Meve's Starling and Tropical Boubou.
