The walking safaris at Chikoko Trails start before you arrive - you reach the camps on foot escorted by experienced guides. This is a completely different type of game viewing - getting you very close to nature without disturbing the environment. Using two exclusive bush camps, Chikoko Tree Camp and Crocodile River Camp, a Chikoko Walking Trail takes you deep into the wilderness of South Luangwa National Park. This is strictly a walking area as there are no tracks for vehicles to access the area.
At the crossing point to access the walking area, called Perekani, is the same one that David Livingstone used to cross the Luangwa River in December 1866, writing:
"I will make this land better known to men that it may become one of their haunts. It is impossible to describe its luxuriance."
Chikoko Tree Camp has three chalets, raised above the ground, within the tree canopy. This enhances the view of the acacia grove in front of camp where a constant array of wildlife activity unfolds throughout the day.
And the second camp, 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.
