Chikoko review

We thought everything about Chikoko was absolutely great, from the cleverly designed two storey chalets, to the delicious food and the sense of immersion in the bush.

The walking was hugely enjoyable - informative and sensibly paced - and although we were unsuccessful in our attempts to see lion, we were thrilled to be compensated by a sighting of a Pel's Fishing Owl, something which has long been on our wishlist.

Enticing walking camp

We enjoyed the walks from Chikoko in the same way as we had from Crocodile, with guides Moffat and then Amon. It was fun avoiding being right in the path of elephants; we enjoyed the combination of the detailed appreciation of the environment and the necessary awareness of larger issues. Amongst the normal sightings of baboons, birds, warthogs and bushbuck we had the rarer pleasures of a Pel's fishing owl and a bushpig.

The accommodation at Chikoko particularly appealed to us with its upstairs bedroom: we had closeup observation of a bushbuck and more distant views of elephant and impala and warthogs from our room.

A lioness whose tracks had been evident around the camp slept outside our door one night - we heard her moving away when going down to the toilet, and could clearly see where she'd been lying in the dust. A hippo was also around at night.

On our walk out to the river on our last morning we saw a wild dog by itself - very exciting.

Chikoko Tree Camp review

We could not have asked for more convivial camps! We stayed at Tafika, Chikkoko, Crocodile and Mawleshi camps, and all camps were very comfortable with a friendly, welcoming, and efficient staff.
Our guide, Mofta, was awesome!
Truly an experience to be repeated!

Chkoko

A delightful place to stay with a lovely view of a small riverbed from the upstairs bedroom and the animals that wandered down to it, including baboons and a large group of giraffe. You would never know unless they told you that everything is set up at the start of the season and pulled down at the end, it is all very solid with wooden furniture that has to be carried in and out.

We had an excellent guide in Moffit for whom nothing was too much trouble and Amon was superb scout who shared his tracking skills on our search for lion.

The kitchen visit is not to be missed and the food was excellent; the vegetables come across from the main camp. We were left to imagine how the fridge is carried in and out every season - no easy task!

Smaller animals were also worth seeing - elephant shrew and a delightful small Scops owl which visited every evening while we were having dinner.

Great two storey huts, amazing walking.

The unusual two storey reed huts are a treat and the walking with Amon and Scout Renaldo was first class.

And saw cook Patson who we first met at Mwaleshi 19 years ago.

Lots of Elephant around, and Leopard kills in the trees. Also Giraffe and Lion.
