Eco Training – Makuleke concession

About the Accommodation

The Makuleke concession, situated between the Limpopo and the Luvuvhu Rivers in the northern section of Kruger National Park, is certainly the wildest and most remote part of the Kruger Park and offers varied vegetation, great wildlife viewing and the best birding in the entire Park.

Scenery ranges from the beautiful, quietly-flowing Luvuvhu River shaded by nyala trees and fever tree forests and teeming with hippos and crocodiles to the awesome Lanner Gorge, palm-fringed wetlands and rocky outcrops with thousand-year-old baobab trees.

Guests visiting the EcoTraining Makuleke camp will be accommodated in comfortable thatched, tented units placed on wooden decks in the shade of large nyala trees. Each unit has an en-suite bathroom consisting of a shower, washbasin with hot running water and a flush toilet and also has a veranda. The communal area consists of a thatch-roofed open sided deck where all meals and relaxation take place. A clearing for evening camp fires creates an idyllic setting for social and leisure time. Guests will be provided with three meals a day, together with two wildlife activities during their stay. The activity could consist of a drive and a walk depending on the weather and preference of the guests.

About the Birding

Ask any birder to name the three best bird-watching destinations in South Africa and Pafuri will come up close to, if not at the top spot. EcoTraining’s Kruger National Park Camp is situated in the Makuleke concession. The camp is located between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu Rivers. This is a true wilderness area, steeped in history and situated in the remotest part of Kruger in one of the most biologically diverse areas.

Makuleke is one of South Africa’s best-known birding destinations and supports around 450 species of birds or 90% of Kruger’s total species list. The combination of the varied habitats, the northerly (tropical) location in South Africa and the presence of resident birders all contribute to this high total.
