Expert Africa comments

For Tafika, this traveller wrote: "This place, with the walking camps over the river, feel almost like home. It was great to see old friends and the high standards encounterd previously were maintained."

The setting of Chikoko Camp was just as described by Expert Africa. We spent one afternoon sitting on our deck and watched as more than a dozen elephants came to drink at the river. The wildlife here was abundant with lots of sightings at or close to the camp.

We had many close encounters with animals throughout the trip but felt we also got a rounded experience of the whole ecology of the South Luangwa.

Enjoyed two afternoons doing watercolours (provided at the camps).

The camps provided access on foot to some different terrains. Amazing that despite no road access they could serve up such high class meals and service.

Great day's walking

Another excellent stay although not as magical as Crocodile - nevertheless enjoyed an exciting walk through a herd of Cape Buffalo!

Chikoko Tree experience

The Tafika magic was transmitted to this camp. whilst more rural and slightly more basic, the friendly informal feel continued. the smallness of ther camp ( one night we were the only guests) enhanced this.
