Walking safaris between Crocodile Camp and Chikoko Camp explore wilderness areas, entirely free from roads and vehicle access so all game viewing is done on foot.

Chikoko and Crocodile Camps are both situated in the riverine area of the Luangwa River, on the opposite bank and slightly upstream of Tafika.

Spend a couple of nights at the beginning or the end at Tafika to enjoy some game-viewing by 4x4 before the walking starts. With a maximum of six guests, each walking safari lasts three to four days and includes time at both trails camps and daily walking excursions. Accommodation at the two rustic and exclusive camps is in chalets constructed of local timber and grass, with flush loos and showers on the ground, and open-sided bedrooms above.

The boma at Chikoko Tree Camp has a cosy fireplace and the shady dining room is a cool lunchtime spot. At Crocodile Camp there is a split-level bar, lounge and dining area cut into the riverbank. All luggage and supplies are carried ahead by porters so guests need only carry binoculars and cameras. Gentle walks along the maze of animal footpaths are led by highly experienced guides, and accompanied by an armed National Park scout and all-important tea-bearer.

Why We Love It

The landscapes here are beautiful and the diverse game have become increasingly relaxed to those passing on foot.
