BMW Bikers Club
The Pretoria branch of the BMW Bikers Club organised an on-road/off-road rally in August 2011. BMW riders from all over South Africa spent a long weekend touring the far reaches of the Limpopo Province. Pafuri River Camp hosted over 30 bikers to a hearty and much enjoyed 'potjie' braai.
Get Your "Own" Baobab
Now, Pafuri River Camp has introduced a unique 'Adopt-a-Baobab' programme, which allows our guests to sponsor a young baobab and select the site where it will be planted. You will get a certificate verifying your 'adoption' and providing you with the exact GPS coordinates of your tree. You can then view the site on a program like Google Earth and, of course, you are always welcome to visit us again and check on your tree's progress in person! As baobabs live for an extraordinarily long time, your certificate could well become a family heirloom, being passed on to your children and their children for generations to come.
Johan Badenhorst and his 'Voetspore' team spent two nights at Pafuri River Camp en route to Egypt in September 2011. This was their last stop in South Africa before crossing into Mozambique to continue an epic 4 x 4 journey along the east coast of Africa – from Cape Agulhas to Alexandria. A documentary of their trip will be broadcast on SABC 2 as part of the popular 'Voetspore' series from March 2012.
Pafuri River Camp has become an increasingly popular rest stop for 4 x 4 overlanders travelling across Mozambique via the Pafuri Border Post.
Well Travelled Gnome
Charles and Annette Codd, of Sussex, England brought a pet gnome to Pafuri River Camp for a well-deserved rest in the bush. The gnome had spent most of his time during the last couple of years travelling to various war-torn or disaster areas as a good luck mascot for medical relief teams.
They all enjoyed a very peaceful week at the camp before visiting the Kruger National Park and flying back to England.
