We visited the South Luangwa Safari Park in the middle of April 2017. Should have been after the end of the rainy season but we had a couple of really heavy overnight downpours, which made for a somewhat challenging safari the next day. The first downpour was on the first night and we got out of our 'luxury riverside tent'...

We had a very exciting stay at Croc Valley Camp end April 2017 with hippo's scattering around the camp at night. Nice pool to cool-off after morning game drives. Staff was very kind. Good food. Good value for money.

Stayed at Croc Valley as part of a trip over easter and what a place. It's location right on the riverbank is superb. Returning from our morning game drives each day I used to just sit there for a few hours watching and listening to the hippos floating just yards away from us whilst sipping a cool drink, bliss. We...

We stayed at Croc Valley for 6 nights in April, at the end of rainy season. The location was perfect - equidistant from town and the edge of the park, right on the river. The river was full of hippos which could be seen and heard throughout the day (and night!), and the lodge was home to vervet monkeys which...

So Croc Valley does exactly what it's promises too. It offers simple accommodation of various types and a pay as you go system for meals and activities. The staff, Herbert, Thomas and Billy were charming and helpful. The food on offer is simple fast food style. The speed of service is slow so come expecting things to take some time....

A Great place to stay amidst the nature. The Croc Valley Safari Lodge is ideally located on the banks of River Luangwa. We were in the company of hippos and elephants all through our stay at the lodge. The staff is very good and cooperative. Water monitors were freely moving around in the camp area. We stayed in Turtle Tents...

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.
