OVERVIEW ON CROCODILE RIVER CAMP IN SOUTH LUANGWA – NORTHERN
Crocodile River Camp has three chalets imaginatively constructed of thatch and natural materials: delightfully simple, perfectly comfortable. It rests beneath a grove of magnificent ebony trees, overlooking a dambo and the action of a day in the wild. Crocodile River Camp is part of Chikoko Walking Trails that operates slightly upstream (8 km) of its sister camp, Tafika on the West bank of the Luangwa and can also be combined with its second sister camp Chikoko Tree. Chikoko Walking Trails in the South Luangwa National Park are conducted in a very beautiful area, rich in wildlife. It is a wilderness area, free of roads and vehicles. David Livingstone crossed the Luangwa River in 1866 at Perekani, the crossing point used for Chikoko Trails today.
