On foot, biggest herbivores become gentle giants as giraffes and elephants tower over you and the buffalo are now on eye level. The Luangwa’s predators now become the prey as you track lions prints from the night before. It is the realness of the experience, that dash of adrenaline associated with standing downwind of an elephant and catching its unmistakable scent that make walking safaris unforgettable. The Chikoko Tree Camp is situated on the edge of an acacia park with open plan architecture for great in-camp viewing. The camp is a hotspot for viewing elands, roans, kudus, elephants, giraffes, wild dogs, lions, warthogs, hippos and crocodiles.
Chikoko Tree Camp is one of two small and exclusive bush camps at Chikoko Trails in South Luangwa National Park. Located on the west bank in the South Luangwa National Park, a few kilometres upstream from parent camp Tafika, Chikoko Tree Camp is only accessible on foot and offer unparalleled walking safaris through the idyll of remotest Africa.
