Pel's Post

This eight-sleeper eco-luxe property, Pel's Post, is situated in a tranquil location close to the riverbank and is a masterpiece of contemporary lodge design.  Guests are accommodated in 4 luxurious, free-standing spaces, each with state-of the-art retractable, remote-controlled screen offering 180 degrees of uninterrupted views.  

The Makuleke private concession in Pafuri - a wedge of land that lies between the Luvuvhu and Limpopo Rivers in the Northenmost section of the Kruger National Park - is famed for its rugged natural beauty and astonishing plant, bird and animal life.  In fact, 80% of the Park's biodiversity can be found in the 26 500ha private concession that unfolds throuhg vast alluvula floodplains, deep sandstone gorges, tracts of sandveld studded with ancient baobabs and the Southern Hemisphere's largest fever tree forest.  It is a vast and remote wilderness just waiting to be explored.



Each of the four suites - which can be reserved individually or all together for a completely private safari experience - features a king-sized bed, an open-plan bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers, an oversized bathtub, a well-stocked mini bar and generous wooden deck with views of the Luvuvhu River. As at The Outpost, each unit is open to the elements on three sides, with state-of-the-art retractable, remote-controlled screen in place of walls.

Game Drives

The Makuleke Private Concession, spanning a vast 26,500 hectares, is know as the Eden of Kruger. Pafuri, where this sanctuary resides, boasts a remarkable 80% of the biodiversity found in the expansive Kruger National Park. Although you can and most likely will see members of the big 5 while staying here, it is the bird life, the history and the landscape that captures our guests’ attention.

Here, we specialize in the art of the "slow safari," an immersive journey through the true African wilderness, where you'll encounter not only the Big 5 but also the enchanting Little 5 and everything in between. This region is renowned for hosting some of the largest herds of buffalo and elephant in South Africa, a testament to its fertile grounds nourished by the convergence of three rivers in the Pafuri Triangle. This nutrient-rich soil is a haven for an array of wildlife, from graceful impalas, elusive nyala, and majestic eland to the iconic wildebeests. The Makuleke Private Concession is a gateway to igniting moments of discovery that awaken new passions and deepen your connection to the wild.
