Big Lagoon Camp is one of two small and exclusive bush camps in South Luangwa, which together form Chikoko Trails, the other being Chikoko Tree 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.

Big Lagoon Camp has three chalets imaginatively constructed of thatch and natural materials delightfully simple and perfectly comfortable. The camp is situated beneath a grove of magnificent ebony trees, overlooking a dambo and the action of a day in the surrounding area. The main area is roofed providing welcome shade during the day. A stay at Big Lagoon Camp combines well with a stay at its sister camp, Chikoko Tree Camp and at the main Tafika Camp.

Walking is at a leisurely pace, giving you time to observe and appreciate your surroundings. The morning walk usually lasts about four hours and includes a tea and snack stop. The afternoon walk tends to be shorter, returing to camp before darkness falls, in time for sundowner drinks. The terrain is mostly flat but occasionally uneven, and you often follow established hippo and elephant trails. These walking safaris are not suitable for children under 12 years of age.

Big Lagoon Camp is a seasonal camp open from 25th May till 31st October.
