Crocodile Bushcamp review

After an interesting morning of walking led by the immensely knowledgable Isaac Zulu, ably supported by Park Ranger Alex and stalwart tea bearer Brighton, we arrived at Crocodile Camp. Here we found the same impeccable standards we encountered at Tafika.

Delightful, friendly staff, superb meals and excellent beds. How do they do it?!

Isaac was a mine of information, and with his tongue in cheek humour and wealth of (possibly tall?) tales we learned so much in our time in the bush.

It's worth noting that the terrain between the camps is criss-crossed with deep fissures in places. We wore walking shoes but something with a bit of ankle support might be preferable

Crocodile Bushcamp review

See previous comments on Chikoko for our overall comments of walking the Chikoko walking trail, which was brilliant.

Of the two camps we preferred the accommodation and location of Crocodile slightly more. Sitting watching a herd of elephants surrounding the camp to feast on the ebony fruits was one of the highlights of our holiday.

With hindsight we might have spent 2 nights at Crocodile and 1 at Chikoko instead of the other way around. Better still would have been 2 days at each!

Crocodile Bushcamp review

A wonderful little camp. Excellent food - also the vegetarian options. Unfortunately we could only have separate beds - but for the rest of the trip this was changed. We didn't see much wildlife on the walks and unfortunately all morning walks had to be planned so as to bring or meet other guests which meant that there was less flexibility to adapt the walks to what was to be seen.

In general we did not find the communication with Isaac so easy - had we known the local language we would have got much more out of his conversations with the park ranger. As it were, we felt somewhat kept in the dark as to what was going to happen next - and why.

Ian and Michelle - Crocodile Bush Camp review

Of the two walking bush camps we visited, Crocodile was our favourite. Our grass hut was very comfortable and well appointed as with all the camps related to Tafika, but in this case in addition to a view over the plain, our hut happened to be right next to a small watering-hole maintained by the camp. This allowed our own room to double as a game-viewing hide where we watched antilope, monkeys, Baboons, birds, and warthogs enjoy the pool, without any of them being aware of our presence.

As with the Chikoko Camp, the food was outstanding using a very rudimentary kitchen. Our great trail guide Isaac and the camp staff made our stay a thoroughly enjoyable experience I'd recommend to anyone who likes a good hike.

lovely walking in June

We walked in as the first visitor this year. The staff & food were excellent as usual. We have been before but not in the early season.

It was long grass, fewer easy-to-see animals, more raptors and other birds. The grass covers the holes made earlier by elephants & buffalo in the black cotton soil which means walking there requires care. Alex our guide was excellent, and also good company as we were the sole visitors so we were able to talk about life and progress being made in Zambia.

A lovely lodge at this time of the year.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Crocodile is a small bushcamp with rooms in the Tafika stryle, if less elaborate (no tiled floors, but quite similar). The setting is great and the water hole attracts lots of life for easy viewing from the camp.

The food retains the high Tafika quality with fresh supplies being walked in almost daily.

Between Crocodile and Chikoko, I prefer the latter, due to its upstairs sleeping, but they are both super little camps with excellent staff and guides.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Beautiful camp in very wild surrounding.

We were not so lucky with our sightings here, but our guide Stephen was excellent.
