PRIVATE PARADISE

Luvuvhu River Camp is an exclusive one-of-a-kind haven on the banks of the Luvuvhu River near the legendary Crooks’ Corner in the far north of the Kruger. Privately owned, it is made available to those in the know for a few weeks each year. If you can secure it, it is worth a special trip.

PROLIFIC FAUNA AND BIRDING

Overlooking the Luvuvhu River, in an area that is prolific in wildlife, and with stunningly varied birdlife different from the rest of the Kruger, this camp is a sanctuary in the heart of Pafuri.

GAME DRIVES

A private game vehicle and guide are available to take you on twice daily game drives.

FIRST CLASS WALKING

This area is exceptional for exploration on foot. With few roads in the 230 square kilometre concession, there are many places you can only walk to, such as the Mutale Gorge. Particularly good guides are keen to introduce you to an area that provokes great passion and loyalty. The excursions need to be arranged in advance.

SPECTACULAR FLORA

The most striking characteristic of the area is the sub-tropical beauty of the fever tree forests, baobab groves and glades of springs on the floodplain.
