Origin Trail


From Makuleke Concession to Pafuri (Northern Kruger)


5 Nights


From US$ 2,520 per person

Journey Overview

Adventure awaits! And what an adventure–a trail is a special experience, the ultimate experience of freedom and the wild. Guided by Andrew, who has a very special connection to Makuleke. He knows every baobab in the area, the most beautiful scenic vistas and it is a place he continuously refers to as his favourite in Africa, smitten with the wondrous fever tree forest and stunning biodiversity. Experience sleep-outs in the bush, the most diverse and remote ecosystem in the Kruger…. let the wild embrace you like the long lost lover it is. Nestled the Limpopo and the Luvuvhu Rivers in the northern section of the Kruger National Park is the Pafuri region, an area spanning 24 000ha (59 305 acres). Within the Pafuri area is the Makuleke Concession, the ancestral home of the Makuleke people and the most diverse and scenically attractive area in the Kruger National Park. So while the wild enchants you, the folklore of early explorers and ancient civilisations will whisper in the wind around you.

Meet the Team

Expert Avatar

Proudly Zambian, and addicted to Africa’s beauty and wildness, Andrew has an insatiable need to explore. This led Andrew into a decade of work as a guide and expedition leader for some of the most renowned outfitters and in some of Africa’s most remote camps as well as in some of the most luxurious and prestigious lodges and hotels. Andrew got into private guiding for the purpose of taking others on these unforgettable adventures. His goal was not to simply connect the dots between destination and route but to connect others to Africa’s limitless space and stretch the aperture of their mind and soul with the continent’s internal mystery and wildness.
