What to expect from Pafuri in Kruger National Park?

Pafuri is the northern tip of Kruger National Park, where Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa meet, also called “crooks corner”. This part of the park offers beautiful landscapes and magical forests along the river, part of it fever tree forests. Significant are the baobabs, perfect photographic subjects for sunrise and sunset.

The region is in general not as wildlife rich as the southern part of Kruger Park and got on top of that hit by first a drought and then a flood in January 2013, which many animals did not survive. Nonetheless it is worth visiting Pafuri. It is very beautiful and walking trails as part of an
African safari tour can add a special experience. Don’t expect cat sightings like in the Sabi Sand, rather modest sightings and lots of great scenery. The Africa traveller who has seen already lots of cats and Big Five will appreciate the special atmosphere Pafuri offers.

Happy photo safari travelling!
