South Africa’s Kruger National Park recently opened the Pafuri Border Camp, situated in the northern part of the park in close proximity to Punda Maria, near the confluence of the Luvubu and Limpopo rivers. This area of the park is one of the most productive birding territories in South Africa.

The new ecofriendly facility includes three houses: Mockford Residence, which houses eight guests; Mockford Cottage, four guests; and Dr. Guest House, six guests. There is a reception area, a swimming pool and a museum, which will be operational next year. 

“We are excited about this new addition, as the accommodation facility has a rich history and our tourists will be able to spend more time in the area. With abundance of large trees due to its proximity to Luvuvhu and Limpopo Rivers, the border camp will offer great birding opportunities to guests,” said Kruger National Park Managing Executive Glenn Phillips.
