Great walks at Crocodile Bushcamp

We walked from Chikoko to Crocodile. So nice to be away from everything and still enjoy great food and a hot shower and a comfortable bed.

Crocodile Bushcamp has its own little watering hole and we could watch plenty of impalas, pukus, warthogs and baboons while relaxing, even one elephant payed a visit. One evening we even saw a big pride of lionesses on the bank of the river. It was very impressive!

Peaceful bush camp

We walked to and at Crocodile and Chikoko Bushcamps, so the game-sighting experience was less dense but more intense because of the experience of walking through the environment and all the information this supplies.

We enjoyed the walk to the camp, with guide Stephen and plenty of wildlife sightings(elephants, buffalo, impala, zebra, puku, baboons) and some interesting tracks (lion, hyena, civet , genet). We actually reached the camp mid-morning, after a half- hour tea break en route, so we would have been happy to have spent longer getting there, perhaps by being able to spend time waiting and watching the behaviour of the family of elephants we passed for example.

Other walks from the camp were similarly interesting, and the more local wildlife also. There was a hyena at the camp after dinner, and a little house snake under the table after lunch the next day. Moffat was our very cheerful and competent guide at Crocodile and Chikoko - we really enjoyed the quiet away-from-it-all nature of these walking camps.

Crocodile Bushcamp 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!

Crocodile Bushcamp

Very different setting and buildings to Chikoko, but the same excellent standard. While we were there we didn't see many animals from the camp itself (an elephant at breakfast) but plenty of sightings of all sorts when walking - including elephant, buffalo, warthog, kudu, impala and lion and regular sightings of a solitary hippo in a lagoon - we gave him a wide berth.

We had the same guide (Moffit) and scout (Amon) as at Chikoko, and that meant we were able to build up our knowledge as they knew what they had already told us. Tea making on the morning walk was in the hands of Kabula, who made the fire to boil the kettle without matches.

Because we travelled in late June/ early July it was harder to see wildlife - plenty of long grass to hide in, more food available for the carnivores and less need to reach the Luangwa to drink. But it was cooler for walking, there was plenty to see and our guide told us about plants and trees as well as animals.

There are lots of birds to see - eg fish eagle, heron, egret, crane, bee-eater, love birds, vulture, stork and many more.

Walking across oxbow lakes that have dried up can be a bit challenging as you have to avoid the holes left by elephant and hippo feet in the (now set hard) mud.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Crocodile was rustic. The chalets had a great view over a dry lagoon where warthogs and Zebra came.

However the staff there were magic: they conjured up miracles of meals from a wood fire. Cakes(!), dinner, entrees, sweets. Nothing was too much trouble.

Our guide Moffat was wonderful: knowledgeable and good company. The guys that walked with us (Zie and Paul) were good humoured and very competent. We felt very safe

We had two reservations with Crocodile: firstly there is not a very high density of wildlife; also there were a lot of biting insects. If we had seen that lion pride that we tracked on foot for an hour it would have been great.
