I spent eight days at the Croc Valley Camp with my son in the rainy season. The atmosphere in the camp is excellent, the scene is relaxed, the staff friendly and helpful and the position good. Officially the camp is just outside the park but the boundary is by no means precise and the camp unfenced so there are plenty...

We arrived here late in the afternoon after a drive from Malawi. We got shown to our safari tent and got advice regarding camping. We were so surprised to see that despite the river bed being dried up the camp literally sits on the side of the river. This meant we could see loads of different animals including hippos, crocs...

Dear kelwalsh14, Thank you very much for your lovely review, we are happy to hear that you had a great stay with us and were able to become a bit more comfortable with our wild visitors in the camp :-). I can totally relate to you – sleeping your first night in a Game Area can sometimes be quite scary,...

This place was recommended to us by some fellow motorcycle overlanders and we were not disappointed, if anything it was even better than described. We were greeted by a young white chap who was absolutely friendly and professional, he took the time to show us around all the rooms that were available and point out the features of each. We...

The place is very nice : right in front of the Luangwa River. We did camping there. But the first evening, an elephant try to steal food in my car. He tried to kill me when I tried to scare him. Hopefully, the watchmen saved me. So, take all your food of the car and put it in the building....

Had a great stay, awesome setting overlooking the river camping up on the bank. Only downside was the baboon pooping on our tent in the morning. Great hospitality and management... Went on a night drive which ended before it got dark as rain hammered down. The manager proactively came over and told us we didn't need to pay even though...

Wow and Wow. This a campsite at a great location near the river. With the option of staying in a bungalow, which is what we chose. We were told not to walk outside at night, due to there being lions or wild animals. There are security guards available who will take you to your lodgings so there is no worry...

We stayed 2 nights at Croc Valley. We immediately liked the setting and the place looks great. Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable. We stayed in a twin room with shared facilities and that was all very good. We did found out there were more (and cheaper) options available on our 2nd day, and were surprised we were not...

Located directly on the river, Croc Valley Camp offers a variety of accommodation. Our party were in the backpackers' rooms, clean and comfortable enough, although ours was a little cramped because there were bunks along with the double bed in it. I can't really comment about the food, because being part of a tour, we all had the same, pasta,...

Camped in Croc Valley camp for two nights in October & absolutely loved it! Not only could I hear the sounds of hippos and elephants munching away at night, but watching the sunrise in the morning was made extra special with a view of a herd of elephants making their way to a watering hole right beside the camp (a...
