My family, friends and I experienced the best 2 nights EVER (10th & 11th) at Baobab Hill House. Having your own place in the bush, your own guide (Mike is INCREDIBLE) and then your food prepared (Ponkie is a STAR) was such a treat. The house is fabulous, private and the location is simply exquisite. Would recommend to anyone

Our Easter week-end was very pleasant, despite extreme heat on one of the days and rain on another. The staff were all friendly, efficient and very accommodating of our requests. The game drives were very interesting in the part of the Park that is a birder's paradise. A great place to book for family and/or friends to spend time together...

Baobab Hil Bush House is one of those magical places, along with the Pafuri area. An interesting fact about Pafuri is that the area has over 450 different bird species. We hope you return.

A great location in the very northern region of Kruger National Park. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfy. Two game drives per day and each well over 3 hours, which is a good time to see any possible animal sightings. The scenery is remarkable and this part of the region has so many trees including the Baobabs. Just...

Thank you so much for your review. Pafuri Camp happens to be in one of those beautiful areas in Pafuri. Being able to have the the Nyala's, baboons, elephants and Buffalo around your room is something many people wish to experience. We hope that you will return.

Stayed at Baobab Hill...highly recommended. The service was wonderful, the home beautiful a truly special experience. Although it is self catering Wendy, who looks after the house made us delicious food with the ingredients we provided.

Excellent Guides (Vongani and Mike), walking tour and game drive was amazing. Location is really special and definitely worth the visit. Nice and remote which helps get away from the regular Kruger crowd. We saw hiena, leopard, elephant, hippo, buffalo, waterbuck, giraffe and excellent birdlife. Rooms were also great and you had your own space. We stayed in room 18...

There is simply no better option to get away from the chaos of the city and get back to nature. We went for a family birthday and the service, experience and personal attention provided by the lodge made the stay that much more amazing. I would not recommend this as a family destination if you have young children but as...

We were booked to stay at Baobab Hill Bush House. As a result of power problems we were offered a move to the luxury tented camp at no additional cost. We had a wonderful time, the manager of the lodge, Godfrey Baloyi, handled the situation with such grace and aplomb, and we were very grateful for his generosity. In addition...

A very nice location far away from any large rest camp. Amazing landscape full of baobab trees. Infortunately wildlife viewing is restricted due to high grass and dense bushes in summer time. We will definitely come back in winter time.

This lodge is a jewel. I have been fortunate enough to stay in many lodges in Southern and Eastern Africa and for me Pafuri is one of the stand outs. The staff are drawn from the community who own the land and this gives their hospitality a very real flavour. The camp is beautifully set on the river bank and...
