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.
There is an active waterhole and seasonal wallow visible from some of the tents.
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.
HERDS OF GAME
The Big Five are present, and the area is characterised by large herds of elephant and buffalo on the floodplains during the dry season (April-October).
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.
The Camp consists of a main area and five tents sleeping 10 people. It is perfectly suited for group or family bookings.
The main area has a large and beautifully decorated lounge and dining area and a large wooden deck.
There is a plunge pool to provide relief from the heat, which can regularly exceed 40C during the summer peak.
The camp is serviced daily and offers a guide and a cook to assist at mealtimes. You bring your own food and beverages. There is a mine shop on the other side of the Pafuri Gate, if needs must whilst you are there.
