Crocodile Camp - The Details
On the Chikoko Trails, Remote Africa Safaris offer a truly unique walking experience in the Luangwa Valley. One of their two bushcamps, Crocodile Camp, overlooks a dry Oxbow lagoon, across the river from Tafika Camp.
Located within the South Luangwa National Park boundary, walks from Crocodile explore wilderness areas, entirely free from roads and vehicle access. The landscapes here are beautiful and the diverse game increasingly relaxed to those passing on foot.
The camp houses six guests in three twin chalets of thatch and pole, sourced from the surrounding woodland. Day to day luxuries are not forgotten and guests are provided with solar lighting, drinking water, mosquito nets and each has an en suite flush toilet and bathroom with heated water in the evenings.
Rustic in style, the Chikoko Trails Camps are the epitome of a divine back-to-basics safari experience. Fabulous food is prepared in hole-in-the-ground ovens, chilled beers are served by smiling staff, steaming bucket showers (overhead drum) relieve tired limbs, shaded hammocks and vibrant piles of cushions make excellent siesta spots and comfortable beds in cool en-suite chalets.
At Crocodile Camp the staff are trained to attend to a guest's every need, ensuring that every little detail is taken care of. Crocodile is open from 25 May to the end of October as it's inaccessible during the rains.
