Very close to lions and elephant at Crocodile

We had close encounters with the Hollywood pride of lions and some grumpy elephants on our first morning walk at Crocodile Bush Camp. We were tracking the lions when 12 adults stood up in the grass very close to us. They made an exit but where chased back towards us by a grumpy herd of elephant. We then made a quick exit.

We saw a lot of other animals, birds plants and insects.

We again were well looked after this time by Brian and the Crocodile team and liked our room and its view.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

A wonderful remote bush camp that allowed us to experience walking in the bush. The food was lovely and the staff exceptionally helpful and friendly.

The relaxed atmosphere of this camp really suited us and chatting in front of the camp fire under the stars was a real highlight.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Comments about Chikoko apply here. Less scenic in October than Chikoko, so we would probably have preferred to go to Crocodile first and have only 1 day here and 3 at Chikoko. But we still had a lovely time.

Because we were alone for both nights it was a particularly magical experience.

Too much sun in bar area during the day

A great little camp in the bush

Huts were excellent, rustic but comfortable and the small team looked after us very well.

The walking safari was great and gave us close views of buffalo, elephant and lots more.

Great camp but less animals to view

Remote Africa changed our schedule to spend one night only at Crocodile camp and two at Chikiko because of the time of year. The facilities are good but that area had a lot less animal life at the time we were visiting.

It was our first experience of walking safaris. the walks were very informative understanding more of the flora and fauna and the environment despite the fewer animal sightings.

First walking safari to Crocodile

Loved Crocodile it was so peaceful and enjoyed watching the animals coming to drink at the water hole.

Visited the kitchen and where the bread is made. The staff are very proud of what they produce and so they should be producing such good food with limited facilities.

Coming to Crocodile was our first encounter of a walking safari, that feeling of being out In the bush is not be missed. Alex our guide brought so much to the whole experience.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

The walk from Chikoko to Crocodile takes you through stunning landscapes, which is the same with the walks from the camps. Again, the camp is beautifully made, all from natural materials, with fabulous colourful accents from local textiles.

The Chikoko Trails is well worth doing -- the terrain is not difficult, the guide sets the pace to yours and you are introduced to a wealth of detail about all facets of the bush.

Crocodile

Second visit to Crocodile. I slightly prefer the camp to Chikoko. On my last visit (late Aug) it seemed there was a lot more game around at Chikoko. At this time of the year there seemed less of a difference, perhaps due to more water around at Crocodile?

There seemed to be some new decor touches around the camp and in the rooms since my last stay (Aug 2009). The walk in mosquito nets are a definite improvement and the robes are a nice touch. I also like the hammocks (but these aren't new).

As with Chikoko the grass was very high in places.

A lovely relaxing stay in a beautiful camp, and Brent was an excellent guide and host.

Crocodile Bushcamp review

Another excellent location but the remnants of the British camp somewhat soured the experience. Brent made the trip amazing.

You could tell that the staff at this camp was not as "seasoned" as the others
