RETURN Africa’s origins lie at Pafuri in the far north of the Kruger National Park. It is in this vast and varied land that we have built a unique social partnership and a collection of superb safari experiences. We hope you’ll visit and – like many before you – become a Pafurian, a member of our family who returns, again and again, to a place that stirs your soul.

Our safaris are unhurried. We believe Pafuri should not be rushed. Let’s leave it to others to chase from sighting to sighting. Instead, we invite you to immerse yourself in this wild and majestic land. You will experience magnificent places, great herds, big predators and abundant life. But we do not go bashing off the track with two or three other vehicles in pursuit of a startled leopard. We listen, we observe, we tell stories, and we wait for her to come to us. Our wildlife roams without hindrance across open frontiers, as it always should. We respect it and the ancestors who lived on this land since the dawn of time. Their traces are everywhere. We know we too are transients, with a duty to care for the land and the life – both people and wildlife – it sustains. We’d love to host you and share what Pafuri means to us.

Our latest addition to our portfolio is Welgelegen House in Cape Town, located just off the vibe of Kloof Street.
