Johannesburg – Makuleke Contractual Park
BACK TO TOP

Your Luxurious Safari begins at The Outpost in the northern-most region of the Kruger Park, boasting almost 80% of the Parks diversity.

The Makuleke Contractual Park (also known as The Pafuri Triangle) is a region of amazing diversity and the unique geology has created beautiful and varied topography. The area has both semi-arid vegetation including numerous large baobabs as well as rich riverine forests with large Nyala trees.

While game, including the Big 5, is plentiful, one is most likely to encounter nyala, buffalo and bushbuck in the riverine areas and drier adapted game, including white rhino, in the uplands. The area is famous for its elephant and buffalo herds in winter, which come to drink from the Luvuvhu river. The Park boasts over 350 species of birds, with an impressive list of specials.

The earliest recorded sighting of white lions in the Timbavati was in 1938. However, the oral records of African elders indicate that these unique animals survived in this region for many centuries.
