The rustic homestead perches on a ridge just north of the Luvuvhu, shaded by the branches of great baobabs and shrouded in history - it was once the Pafuri ranger’s station. At Baobab Hill Bush House, privacy and comfort reign: four bedrooms sleep up to eight people, and the open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge provide ample space to spend time together. If you’d prefer not to self-cater, the restaurant and bar at Pafuri Camp are at your disposal.
The “Out of Africa” veranda is the highlight of the house, and you’ll find yourself drawn to it for sundowners and stargazing. The property is fenced, making it a child-friendly environment, but if you’d like to explore the surrounding bush, a professional guide and open safari vehicle is on hand. Or perhaps a walking tour is just what the doctor ordered.
To make your stay hassle-free, the Baobab Hill House comes with a cook, housekeeper and camphand. Baobab Hill Bush House can be booked on a catered or self-catering basis.
