Crocodile Bushcamp review

Whereas we preferred Chicoko (the tree-top rooms can't be matched), Crocodile has its own unique points and the tea we had whereas a group of elephants with a very young one passed 100m away from us will remain in our memory.

Again Alex and Batwill were brilliant.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Walking-see above [Ed: these travellers commented: '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.' ]

We found this camp even more attractive; maybe because there is an even stronger sense of being genuinely not separated from the bush. There is something very special about lying in a hammock watching the Puku and Impala, then warthogs and finally elephants wandering past!

Fantastic bush camp! L

ovely room with a small water hole right in front of it, where lots of animals come to drink at any time of the day.

Great walks!

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.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Absolutely loved this camp. Again food fantastic and the staff lovely and welcoming. Our cook proudly showed us around his kitchen. It is difficult to believe such lovely food comes out of such primitive facilities. Again, bread to die for!

I particularly loved the hut we stayed in, lovely and comfortable. Peace and quiet except for the lions, hyenas, hippos, cicadas, barking puku.......!

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Excellent walk to Crocodile, Cameron was a super guide who made us feel safe in the bush.

Crocodile camp was welcoming. Food was exceptional, considering the facilities. The camp was well supplied with a good team of porters.

Rooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water.

Crocodile is an amazing 'remote' experience.

You will be staggered by the logistics entailed in setting up Crocodile each season. It is a real priviledge to be able to stay here and there is a great backroom team of guys ready to make your stay special. Of the two walking camps perhaps this is shaded by Chikoko simply on the basis of game density in the immediate area, but anything can happen here.

Walking up or down the riverine pathways is a delight, but some decent footwear helps crossing the floodlplains once they start to dry out because there is not a square inch that has not been pot-holed by game.

I give top marks for facilities because apart from the necessary there are none - which is how a bushcamp should be. All remote camps have a range of natural history books and magazines to entertain those lazy mid-day moments - but be warned, they work you hard here - before you know it it is time for afternoon tea and off you go again.
