It caters for the budget traveler as well as those looking for both self-catering and full board options, offering comfort together with rustic simplicity.
It is renowned for its large concentration of mammals and elephants and it is not unusual to see a wide-ranging variety of wildlife from the comfort and safety of your chalet deck, the bar, restaurant and the poolside.

The exceptional location of Croc Valley Camp makes it a regular host to elephants, giraffe, buffalo, hippos, monkeys, antelope and crocodiles.

Birdlife can also be viewed in abundance with exceptional sightings of many of the migratory birds plus regular residents like Open Billed Storks, African Fish Eagles, bee-eaters and many more.
Whether you want to go on safari in the comfort of our especially adapted game-viewing vehicle or want to venture out on foot, hosts offer a safari tailored to your needs with resident professional guides whose intimate knowledge will make for an unforgettable experience.

The camp fits effortlessly into the surrounding riverine habitat with fantastic views and it is not uncommon to see elephants crossing the river and strolling through the camp on a regular basis.

The chalets are completely environmentally friendly and in order to escape the off-season floods camp's chalets are raised on stilts providing a fantastic viewpoint from Croc Valley Boutique Camp South Luangwa National Park, Northern Province, Zambiawhich to see the wildlife that wanders through the camp.
Throughout your stay, camp's chef's can provide delicious meals and snacks from original recipes using fresh ingredients for your meticulously prepared meals and for those that wish to self-cater or camp, full kitchen facilities are provided. Our campsite is well catered for campers and overland trucks with parking areas, fire places, power points, hot showers and ablutions.
Between safaris, in the midday heat, the big outdoor swimming pool provides the perfect place to relax and cool off. Hammocks are also scattered around the camp over-seeing the river and the swimming pool. The bar is open until 21:30 and serves ice cold drinks throughout the day.
Croc Valley Camp accepts Zambian Kwacha, US Dollars, GB Pounds, Euros, South Africa Rand and Visa (5% surcharge).

Supplies

Food and other supplies if you are self-catering or camping should be brought with you. If you need to pick-up supplies in Chipata there is a Shoprite supermarket, Barclays and Zambian banks and all manner of other goods suppliers that you may need to stock up on!
In Mfuwe village itself, basic groceries only are available, if you are self-catering it is advisable to do shopping in Chipata for the duration of your stay in the valley.

Fuel

There is a OASIS fuel station here in Mfuwe, we do usually have petrol and diesel, but in case of lack of supply, it is always wise to carry a couple of full jerry cans with your own vehicle.

Arrival by road

The road up to the park from Chipata is an adventure. As you pass through rural Zambian villages you will see some of the out of the way scenery often missed by tours that do not go off the beaten track. Your efforts will be worth it when you arrive at camp and quench your thirst at our riverside bar and watch the Luangwa River meandering peacefully past the camp.
