Chikoko Tree Camp

Chikoko Tree Camp

"Walking safari from Chikoko Camp"

2 nights Arrived 5 Oct 2019
"Having just flown to Zambia the previous day and then the short flight to Mfuwe, we were all pretty tired when we were picked up at Mfuwe airport and driven the couple of hours to the banks of the Luangwa. Quite a cultural shock suddenly being paddled across the river and a short walk to Chikoko!

The weather was very hot so to be greeted by friendly faces with a cold towel and a cold beer was most welcoming.

The camp was beautifully laid out to of a very high standard of comfort in every respect. All the staff were delightful, friendly and helpful and the meals were exceptional, especially considering they were all cooked over charcoal and using bread ovens dug into the ground.

The walks we carried out in the mornings and evenings were both exciting and very interesting. We were very impressed with the knowledge of our guide, assistant guide and ranger and each of them were excellent company"

Crocodile Bushcamp

Crocodile Bushcamp

"Walking safari from Crocodile Camp"

2 nights Arrived 7 Oct 2019
"Having walked from Chikoko camp we were expecting a similar high standard and were not disappointed in any respect. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the standard of the accommodation extremely high and the meals excellent.

The walks we conducted from the camp were both varied and very informative as well as being exciting. We were very impressed with our guide, who looked after our every need, together with our ranger who was extremely experienced, and also our assistant guide who followed along in the rear, and who was also very knowledgeable. We saw a wide range of animals but also learnt a lot about their habits, their environment, the trees, the insects, the birds etc"

Tafika

Tafika

"Walking safari from Tafika Camp"

1 night Arrived 9 Oct 2019
"Again, having experienced both Chikoko and Crocodile camps, and knowing that Tafika was the main camp we were still overwhelmed by the attention to detail, the standard of the accommodation, meals etc and the personal welcome by the owners.

The location was fantastic and it was lovely seeing elephants cooling themselves off right outside the compound and also being free to wander around inside. We were pleased to be able to have the option of a night drive and another walk in the bush.

The night drive was very exciting and the whole experience enhanced by the highly qualified and experienced guide and ranger"
