About this property

The tiny and stylishly rustic Crocodile Bushcamp – also known as Crocodile River Camp – is one half of a pair of bushcamps, known as Chikoko Trails Camps, that occupy a remote walking-only section of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. Made of reed and thatch, and rebuilt every year after the rains, it's one of the simpler camps that we feature. Crocodile is paired with Chikoko Tree Camp, and together they act as satellite walking camps for the slightly larger Tafika Camp. All three are operated by Remote Africa Safaris, which is owned and run by one of the Luangwa valley's top walking safari guide, John Coppinger, who is often based at Tafika. Crocodile Bushcamp itself stands beneath a tall grove of evergreen ebony trees, overlooking a large open pan (known locally as a 'dambo'), which was once the course of the Luangwa River. There are numerous depressions in this open area that often contain water during the early part of the dry season, and one small waterhole that is pumped with fresh water during the dry season. This provides green plants and nutritious grazing for the game, so wildlife viewing from camp can be excellent. Accommodation at Crocodile consists of three rustic, reed-and-thatch chalets – so this little bushcamp takes just six people when full. The chalets are set on a slightly raised side of the dambo, where the ancient riverbank used to be. Inside each are twin beds, or a double, covered in brightly coloured African fabrics, with a chair and sofa by the large open window with a good view of the bush. Attached is a private open-air bathroom, its sandy floors covered in reed matting; it has a washbasin, flush toilet and (hot!) shower.
