I would truly recommend this camp to all nature lovers heading for South Luangwa national Park. The prices are way more reasonable than any of the fancy lodges based inside the park. it is close to the gate and convenient for those who wish to self drive. they offer morning and evening drives on an open sided vehicle as well....

An exciting experience close to nature. The staff were friendly and the food was great. The room rates are quite reasonable. The chalets are built from natural materials...stone, wood and grass, and kept quite clean The chalet I stayed had full view of the river... stayed up well into the night watching the night life from my balcony! The elephants... More

Peter as you know my second visit to your lodge. Thank you for the outstanding guiding on the photo tours. The food... I put on weight with the three course meals every day. The pool, a super place to relax in the mid day between game drives. Thanks to the Staff for their generosity and warm friendly disposition. Elephants, monkeys... More

I recently had the pleasure to stay at this amazing Camp for 8 days, the staff/food/accommodations were top notch. Each day our ride into the National Park was even better than the last. The animals are acclimatized to the jeeps and there is plenty of time to photograph them. Peter, the owner, knows how to set up for the best... More

While long dreaming of an African safari, I felt that they were very overpriced, until I found this gem. While not luxurious, the resort is spotlessly clean, the food is excellent, the staff is wonderful, and the overall experience was amazing. We booked a trip specializing in wildlife photography, and were guided by the owner, Peter with only 3 of... More

I came as part of a group with Kiboko in their tented accommodation and wasn't disappointed. The location is absolutely stunning! The views of river and wildlife are superb and elephants regularly pass through the camp! The bar area is a really good spot to relax at when not out game viewing and the pool is a nice place to...

We had an amazing experience at Track and Trail River Camp. Great hospitality, delicious food. The banana soup was delicious, and the accommodation rustic and fabulous. I also had a beautiful facial while there. Leopard sightings galore. Elephants and hippos in our camp but we were so safe. Can thoroughly recommend for a first class up front safari experience.

Stayed for three nights from 25 th november. We looked around another couple of local lodges but decided track and trail was the place for us. Chalet was lovely and right on the river only a couple of minutes from the gate. We actually only went in the reserve on 2 drives but what a great time we had. The... More

We were fortunate to stay a few nights at Track and Trail River Camp. The staff looked after us, the animals visited us and we left with some great stories to tell our friends and family. We mixed the accommodation with camping and chalets and both were top notch. The pool was a life saver as temperatures soared in October.... More
