Chikoko Tree Camp is one of two small and exclusive bush camps in South Luangwa, which together form Chikoko Trails, the other being Crocodile River Camp. These camps are only accessible on foot and offer a unique bush experience. They are ideal for clients who are keen to get away from the restrictions and inactivity of game drives. The experience of being on foot in these isolated and natural surroundings cannot be beaten. Guests are well looked after here and full support is provided with an experienced walking guide, armed National Park scout and chef as well as a general camp staff.
Chikoko Tree Camp offers accommodation for a maximum of six people in three en-suite chalets. The rooms are built three metres above the ground and provide a wonderful vantage point from which to observe the surrounding area. A stay at Chikoko Tree Camp combines well with a stay at its sister camp, Crocodile River Camp and at the main Tafika Camp.
Walking safaris usually last a leisurely three to four hours, often following elephant or hippo trails. As well as the guide and scout, the group is accompanied by a tea bearer. The terrain is mostly flat but occasionally uneven and you should wear comfortable walking shoes. These walking safaris are not suitable for children under 12 years of age.
Chikoko Tree is a seasonal camp open between 25th May and 31st October each year.

"If you want to get away from vehicles, people and pollution and walk in the bush, this is the place for you! Wonderful Zambian hospitality, no light or sound pollution, rustic but comfy accommodation and great walking country. There are no vehicles, you access the camp by boat and then on foot, so be prepared to get away from it all!"
