  • Overview


RETURN Africa’s origins lie at Pafuri in the far north of the Kruger National Park. It is here, on the ancestral land of the Makuleke people, that we have built a unique partnership and a collection of superb safari experiences. Our concession lies in a vast triangle between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers along South Africa’s north-eastern frontier. Between them, the two great valleys embrace one of Africa’s most spectacular landscapes with mountains and gorges in the west giving way to plains, pans, baobabs, and fever tree forests in the east. The land, particularly the low-lying floodplains near the confluence at Crooks’ Corner where our camps are located, harbours an abundance of life. Huge herds of elephant, buffalo and other game congregate here, especially when the surrounding bush lies parched before the rains. Predators and scavengers, ranging from the great cats and hyenas to servals, genets, civets, caracals, amongst many others, find shelter here. The wildlife roams without the hindrance of borders in a trans frontier park that spans three countries. Our diversity also brings a profusion of birds, with numerous specials in what pundits regard as South Africa’s most rewarding birding destination.
