About RETURN Africa Pafuri Tented Camp

RETURN Africa Pafuri Tented Camp is an immersive glamping safari in the Northern Greater Kruger in South Africa. Settled between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers, this land is rich in biodiversity and is home to baobabs, fever trees, big cats and huge herds of elephants. There are 19 luxury tented suites that stretch along the river, each linked by raised wooden walkways. Private viewing decks, en-suite bathrooms (with indoor and outdoor showers) and huge beds with crisp linen offer guests absolute comfort while enjoying the sights and sounds of the wild African bush.

A bush bar, large swimming pool and an outdoor dining area offer everyday entertainment, and there’s plenty of space to unwind beneath the towering Jackalberry canopy which shades the expansive decks. In addition to early morning coffee or tea, guests can enjoy three delicious meals served each day. Guests are invited to take advantage of professionally guided morning and afternoon game drives to experience the extraordinary biodiversity, scenic surrounds and unique history for which the Kruger National Park Pafuri region is renowned.

  • Baobab Hill - private bliss

    What could be more refreshing than waking up to the sound of birds singing their African melodies? That's the sound I heard every morning accompanied by different sounds of animals from monkeys to the great elephant. The game drives were amazing. Make sure you visit the Lanner gorge, it was amazing
