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

We camped at Track and Trail for 4 nights in mid October. It was my first time at the camp and also in South Luangwa. What an incredible place. We were visited by ellies and hippo in the camp pretty much on a nightly basis. The two story thatched camping hides were a great and unique touch. The riverside rimflow... More

This place was incredible. Very affordable and exactly what we were looking for. I have been on Safari at Lake Manyara, the Crater, Serengeti, Masai Mara and Vic Falls. I have never even heard of this park, but it was by FAR the best safari experience I have ever had. We took the basic package but they offer a walking... More

A very good place to stay, near the entrance of South Luangwa Park. Two types of accommodation, luxury tends and chalets. I stayed in a tend, everything its ok. However we are in Africa, its very hot and some mosquito, disturb our sleep. But its normal on this areas, its a bush experience.
