"Comfortable and clean accommodation. Guided birding walk was worth every cent."
"The accommodation was neat and clean. Cash is not easily available in the area, so make sure that you take cash along if you plan on using the restaurant or the bar during your stay. Though the lunch menu is limited, the food was excellent!"
"The camp is equipped with everything you need with a beautiful view on the river.
Service from the staff and bird life is excellent.
"Very good environment to experience nature, night with the sound of frogs n waking up hearing birds singing to mark the begining of new day.
A nice place to be with friends and family."
"Warm weather birds bush atmosfere"
"Managment was very friendly and well informed. "
"Fly catcher ,photo not on internet,
very secluded and much bigger bedroom.
Leadwood and Sausage steps steep.( so not for even slightly disabled think should let guests know.)"
"It was my third stay at Pafuri River Camp and once again it was amazing. This place is one of the nicest I have seen in South Africa so far. I will definitely come back again!"
"A place to unwind and experience the nature at its rugged best. No technology to destruct you. We slept through the sound of mother nature herself - bush-baby cries, cow-bell rings, frogs, crickets and cicadas. A close encounter with Parabuthus granulatus (black scopion) and a rock monitor. Oh not t..."more
"Our stay was great really enjoyed it and the staff was very helpful.
"We were happy with everything. What stood out the most for us was the excellent service they gave us. We had a great time and definitely would go back again."
"We enjoyed the stay, it was very nice. The accommodation is fine, the place is remote and it has met all our requirements. "
"It was my second time at Pafuri Rivercamp and once again I was excited. The place is well maintained and you really feel like staying in the nature. Good service, friendly staff and clean facilities. They also offer a bar for cold drinks in the evenings. I would definetely come again! The only thing..."more
"We had such a wonderful time at Pafuri. Everything is so nice and lovely, it’s an amazing place and great people. I would go there anytime and most definitely recommend it to all my friends and family."
"very friendly and helpful staff, awsome to see the fireflies and hear the bushbabies at night.
"We were 2 families and really enjoyed our stay at Pafuri. The tents are clean and spacious enough, the kitchen is extremely well equipped and the fridge and stove work well, the showers are hot and good and the atmosphere being in the bush but having all the conveniences you need is just great. The ..."more

"Although fairly distant to reach, Pafuri Rivercamp was worth the travel. Virtually next to the Pafuri entrance gate to the Kruger Park, our daily game drives were effortlessly accommodated with none of the crowding experienced in more commercial areas of the park.
The treehouses are comfortable..."
"This was one of the most amazing stays we ever had. The tree-house was just beautiful and the whole site romantic and very nice at all and even clean and save. The staff, especially Robert, was so friendly and kind. This is truly recommendable. The only thing we didn't like was the street from Parfu..."more
"Great hosts, great company, great food and a comfy bed. No electricity and a tent on stilts in the trees on a level with the Vervet Monkeys makes for a truly great experience. Not to be missed!"
"Pafuri Rivercamp was a lovely hideaway. If you can handle not having electricity then this place is more than worth a visit. The tree houses are brilliant and more than comfortable and the working toilets and showers don't hurt either! The pool and bar area is brilliant and the chef makes a superb 3..."more
"What an awesome place.I really enjoyed it there - everything perfectly clean and well prepared. The hosts just make the camp - loved them there!"
"I had an enjoyable stay at Pafuri River Camp and will stay there again when in the area. I arrived at last light but will arrive earlier in the afternoon to enjoy the camp and its surrounds for longer."
"Was only a one night stop so not much to report, was raining very hard as well. Enjoyed the accommodation, rustic and not for those looking for a light switch or mobile reception. Great little pub and ok food."
"Beautiful setting on the river under mature shady trees. Friendly hosts (Colleen and Corie) well-stocked bar with good prices. Comfortable accommodation with well equipped kitchen. Very friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant walks along the river."
"Corrie and Colleen where great hosts.
They went the extra mile for our daughter's marriage wows.
I would recommend this venue to anyone."
"Nice to be out at fresh air, right around the Pafuri Camp. Great Animal sightings at night like Gennet and Bushbaby."
"A very rustic camp that is such a wonderfull break away from the hustle and bustle of the big city life.
Martin and Elle is such wonderful hosts and is a real inspiration for young people to take on a life of seclution out in a area with very little ameanaties and luxuries.
"We had a wonderful stay at Pafuri. Our four teens loved the treehouses although the mattresses could be a bit thicker. The adults in our group thought the setting, swimming pool, boma and evening meals excellent. We all enjoyed the magic of a true bush experience with no electricity. A true escape. ..."more
"What a gem! We were fortunate to have the entire camp to ourselves. Not that it mattered as the chalet we were accommodated in was completely private and was situated on the river. What a view to wake up to! The establishment was clean and well maintained. Although we visited this establishment ..."more
"Yes, we had a wonderful stay at Pafuri Rivercamp. Nightjar was wonderul to stay at. Nothing missing, nothing wrong. Would highly recommend it and will definately stay again! Was the perfect getaway. Thanks to friendly staff, Vaughn, Sandy, Mike and Lynn."
"It was very nice!"
"We really enjoyed our stay at Pafuri. Our 7-year old son in particular. The tents are well equipped and we had everything necessary, except food. Self-catering is not that common in France so we didn't expect it. We also didn't realise the tents were quite isolated. It was not a problem but some pe..."more
"Situated near the gate. 4 km from the tar road. These 4 km are not easy. You need a car with a rather high clearance. Mike and Lin are nice hosts. Tents are equipped with a bush shower. You will get used to it. No telephone. No electicity in your tent. You sleep in the middle of nowhere. A lot of el..."more
"Great experience, I loved it. "
"Great place to stay. We were well looked after by the team and it is a lovely setting. If we knew that each tree house had a fully equipped kitchen we would have cooked our own supper."
"Rustic and secluded the Rivercamp most certainly is! Private, peaceful & tranquil too. The safari tents we stayed in were clean & comfortable, their location overlooking the river was beautiful. Wilma & John were friendly and very helpful. Thank-you for a wonderful experience."
"Fantastic thanks will be back."
"Spent four excellent peaceful days at Pafuri River Camp during first four days of May.
Mild Weather, tasteful food and most interesting presentation of astronomy by Kos.
Thank you we enjoyed every minute."
"Fantastic experience, we definitely will be back some time in the future!
And don't bother making use of the (well equipped) self catering facilities - you would miss out on excellent food and good company!
"It was a wonderful experience although very short. Very comfortable. We will return"
"What a beautiful spot - accommodation was so different and such fun - kitchen well stocked, lovely shower- good loo - our
Xmas dinner was very special with an amazing choice - what chefs!! Thank you so much Sandy and Vaughan and Pat and the cordon bleu chef/game ranger/Mark and his fellow ..."
"We did not have time for any of the activities as we had only booked one night
but we will remember our night in the safari tent for a long time. Don`t be put off by the thought of roughing - it, we are into our fifties and found it to be great fun.
We will make sure that we allow more..."
"What a wonderful environment, the accommodation was neat and tidy, service was brilliant, and the stay as a whole was fantastic. Travelled through to Kruger daily, saw loads of animals, wonderful lion sightings at Pafuri bridge, not overcrowded and busy like south."
"As regular visitors to Southern Africa we have long overcome the myths and stories that obscure the realities of that part of the Continent. The Rivercamp was yet another necessary building block in constructing an overall picture.
For people used to urban living this really is a necessary..."
"We were impressed with the Camp and the facilities and plan to visit again on our next trip."
"It was exceptional experience we had. especially children asking me when we will go back to top tree house next time. People were very friendly and kindness and food they made was tasty. The sound from forest and river was impressed. I am definitely see you again and will stay few more days. Thank y..."more
"We were astonished about this lovely accommodation. We spend only one night there, what is definitely too short.
"The camp is situated alongside the most Northern part of Kruger, amidst beautiful Mopanie trees and the Matule river. Nothing surpasses ice cold beer from the genius gas camp fridges after a day under the Limpopo sun. The camp reminds of adventures of the un-spoilt bush of yesteryear, yet with moder..."more
"The camp is really not for everybody, however those people in the world who are not stuck up and enjoy the real bush life experience, Pafuri river camp is the place to visit. It's really rustic with it's paraffin lamps and outside showers. I would visit there any time as i found the place to be awes..."more
"Very, very nice"
"We would just like to thank Dave and Karen for our wonderful stay at their camp.
We booked into Nyala Camp and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the camp, their hospitality and their great stories.
Thanks once more and we hope to visit you again!
Claudia, Constanze & Micha..."
"Wonderful site, so relaxing. Hosts incredibly helpful. We are very glad we stayed up in the North of Kruger away from the crazy crowds of the south. We saw tons of wildlife (including lion and leopard and great birdwatching on the Luvuvhu), and had peace and quiet to ourselves at night. Very sat..."more
"Best thing of all about Pafuri River Camp is the fact that there is no electricity. For a few days to be in a truly rural setting with lamps lighting up the camp giving it a Fairy Tale like atmosphere is magical.
This was our second visit and was as enjoyable as before.
A truly wonderful p..."
"It is better than I expected. It is not an hotel. It is a place where you can relax, chill out without the interruptions of electronic appliances, cell phones and computers.
There is lots of fresh air, open spaces, farm sounds and open skies. Camp fires and night skies. Very friendly and h..."
"We had a wonderful time. The outdoor shower was the best shower I've ever had. Dave and his wife were very friendly and made you feel
very at home. The accomodation is rustic but just adds to the experience. Bush pub and pool deck were also wonderful. Will definitely be back."
"We stayed for three days at Pafuri River Camp. In all my holiday experience we have never done a rough holiday with no electricity etc.
Glynn is a superb host and the accomodation is comfortable and the camp is so different and the service so good that you think you are royalty. Our sincer..."
"Ons het dit baie geniet, veral die rustigheid! Geen elektrisiteit, voertuie of te veel mense nie, net die natuur."
"Enjoyed our stay at the lodge and look forward to staying in the new lodge being constructed. Also enjoyed exploring the area."
"What a way to spend some time in the bush. The monkeys wake you up in the morning, jumping on your tent. Thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent there, Glynn and company are great hosts, spend some time chatting to them sitting at the pub. Kruger Park just next door with great views of northern bushvel..."more
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - wonderful ambience, accommodation basic, but fun, food more than adequate, will certainly recommend to anybody requiring accommodation in the area."
