Pafuri picnic spot and look out point should be your first stop when entering Pafuri. It is a restful spot surrounded by luscious Anna Trees and thick bushes. There are braai (barbecue) and toilet facilities and a place where you can buy firewood and cool drinks. Relax and relish in the wildlife and vegetation that surrounds you. Watch the birds go about their daily business while the Crocodile waits for a kill, or simply just take in the beautiful surroundings.

On the wall of the toilets there is a mark showing the level to which the water reached during the 2000 floods..

Pafuri is abundant in birds with 257 species having been recorded at this site in just one year. The area is often visited by bee eaters, kingfishers and woodpeckers and you will be able to hear the call of the majestic fish eagle gliding across the water. More uncommon birds found in the area include Pel’s fishing owl, the thickbilled cuckoo, the rackettailed roller, Arnot's bush chat, the bush shrike, narine trogon and the trumpeter hornbill.
