The Makuleke are a Tsonga tribe living in the Pafuri Triangle of South Africa at the confluence of the Luvuvhu river and Limpopo river in what is now the Kruger National Park.[1] The Tsonga-speaking agricultural and fishing tribe settled the area in the seventeenth century with decentralized homesteads.[2] When the park was created they were exiled outside the gates, but had title to their lands restored as part of post-apartheid restitution laws.[3] There are about 12,000 members of the clan and they are part of an eco-tourism economic development with the land they received from the park.[4]
