Excellent Chikoko Camp

We liked everything about this camp. It's very quiet and remote. The food, the staff, the guide (Alex), the room, everything was just perfect!

We could spend weeks here!

Chikoko Tree Camp review

The walking was great; the guides were so knowledgeable about the ecology, plants, birds, insects as well as the antelopes, elephants etc.

That was what I wanted from a walking safari; genuine natural history, not just big cats etc.

The room was comfortable and the food astonishingly good.

Chikoko Tree Camp review

A great place: remote, very nice rooms with a fantastic terrace from where you can easily watch the game passing by.

I had the chance to be the only guest there and the staff has been fantastic making me feel as at home.

Great walks with an excellent guide.

Chikoko tree camp hot- spot

loved it. remote with no roads so walking safaris only. as it was very hot by midday walking was done in the early morning and late afternoon. somehow walking brings the bush a lot closer and not just literally.

we asked to see the kitchen and it is marvellous that such quality food is cooked with these simple facilities. The guiding was careful and really excellent, thanks to Cameron. the only comment is that the rooms were a bit airless and stuffy but otherwise we were so glad to have followed advice to add this to our trip.

great walking again

more animals here than at Crocodile. Pelicans wirh storks was a first for us.

Rooms are better without the canvas roof, but still a bit airless at night and so hot. Nice new ladder in room 1.

Expert Africa comments

This couple from Italy were ‘extremely satisfied’ with their trip with us to Zambia – as noted on their overall trip review – but they didn’t leave any more detailed comments on the individual camps.

Chikoko Tree Camp review

Lovely location and we particularly liked the design of the tree houses.

Pattersons's food was up to the standard of Crocodile.

We enjoyed all of the walks and saw plenty of wildlife

A great walking camp

Overlooking a flood plain creates many opportuntites for game viewing from camp, and particulalry the vantage point afforded by rooms on stilts. This is a well sited camp and the walks that break through to the Luangwa itself are stunning. Like Crocodile, this is bush camp perfection where the day starts and ends around an intimate camp fire, from bush tea to G&T, nothing beats this!

Rooms are a little whacky - so you may need to do stairs in the middle of the night to get down to the loo - but hey, you are here for adventure anyway!

Chikoko Tree Camp review

We only had one night here on 7th August. We swapped it for the 2 days in Crocodile to make our homeward journey easier, but again, loved it. In a lovely position to be able to watch animals and some lovely walks.

Cameron our guide, was very knowledgeable and great fun to be with. We became particularly fond of George, our tea bearer who taught Mike how to make fire without matches. Also our thanks go to our spotter, Emanuel, who looked after us very carefully and at no time did I feel any danger because he and Cameron knew exactly what to do when danger threatened.
