We stayed here 3 nights and as it was the slow season they very nicely upgraded us to the deluxe chalet which was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom and a view of the river. My only complaint about the room were the sheets, which were thin and did not fit the bed properly... More

We spent 3 very comfortable (late) Summer nights in a Chalet. The room was cool, comfortable, quiet and the decor is elegantly rustic with stone baths and driftwood details. A truly African experience listening to the calls of Hippo and Fish Eagle at sunset. The Swimming pool was a cool delight with a lovely view of the river. All of... More

We spent 5 nights in one of the lodge's chalets facing the river. It was perfect. Very well appointed, nice desing. Quiet setting and casual, yet with a touch of distinction. The meals (3 courses) were very good and different each time. Friday, our guide was dedicated and knowledgable. We saw so many animals: leopards, lions, elephants, girafes, zebras, hippos,... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Track & Trail Lodge at the end of October. We stayed in a luxury tent overviewing the river. You just sit down and see the wildlife passing along and through the river. The hosts Peter, Kirsten and their staff are doing a very good job! The tents are very comfortable and spacious and the... More

A bit of background first, I came here as a very budget backpacker firstly on a single trip to Zambia in 2007 and then again as part of a round the world tour in 2010 so I might have different expectations and needs than other travelers. The first trip we made use of their camping ground which directly overlooks the... More

We did the special photo safari for the second time, because we liked it that much the first time! The camp is very nice, people are relaxed and friendly and the food is great (even for vegetarians, thanks to Kirsten & the chefs). South Luangwa Park has a lot to offer and Peter is able to provide the best opportunities... More

The hospitality was amazing, Peter and Kirsten are so welcoming and it was a pleasure each day to sit with them and talk about your adventures in the park. The wildlife is fantastic and that is matched by some of the best food I have ever had ... especially the soup. Friday our guide, was highly skilled and had a... More

Great lodging and meals, minutes from the South Luangwa Natl Park entrance. The best part of this experience was the twice dily safari into the park; Track and Trail has excellent rapport with park guides; Friday and Kennedy were excellent.

We stayed here on a tour organized by Kiboko Safaris, Lilongwe. The camp area was clean, easy to navigate and had a great view on the river with great observation of wild animals from the tent door. The luxury en-suite tent was very cozy and perfect for relaxing. The facilities were clean and the main room in the tent had... More
