Before we decided to stay we looked at Crocodile camp(backpackers) Wildlife Camp(very South Africans) and Flatdogs(upmarket). We stayed in Track and Trail on the Zambesi river because of the beautifull decorated chalet. Elephants and Hippos all around. Nice set up of the lodge. Safe night guards to keep the elephants on distance. We did not have a nice click with... More

Chalets are on the river across from the South Luangwa National Park, and the campsite is just behind, without direct river views. However it is spacious, well looked-after, with a clean ablution block which was never too busy. Monkeys and baboons frequently visit in the day time, and move quickly when food or other odds and ends are left unattended,... More

2nights at Track and Trail Camp was just NOT enough. The friendly atmosphere, the giggles and heartfelt laughter of the Track & Trail staff made my colleague and I feel right at home. The drives were a delight, very informative, fulfilling and I got to learn the names of different birds other than the Lilac-Breasted Roller which I already know... More

I recently stayed at Track and Trail River camp for 2 nights with a work colleague. I had a wonderful and memorable stay. Starting from the pick up at Mfuwe airport, the accommodation is very clean and comfortable. The food was beyond my expectation, it is 5*****. The staff are very professional, friendly and welcoming. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More

I booked a private photographic safari at Track & Trail River Camp. It had been a couple of years since my last trip to southern Africa, so I started this trip with fairly high expectations. The photographic safari included 5 nights at Track & Trail (and 3 more at Zikomo in Nsefu), and everything was perfect! The staff of the... More

Easily one of the more beautiful lodges in the region with all the amenities one could hope for. Spectacular views from most rooms and really good food. Elephants traverse through camp so all round great location. On the last minute we moved here from Tornicroft and the lodge is much better. I would not say it is a better experience... More

Peter G, Manager at Track and Trail River Camp, responded to this review

Disappointed about what exactly? The reason why you were not happy at one stage was because you expected a private vehicle for your safari. So when you noticed that few other guests were sharing the same game viewer you pulled out last minute. A private safari needs to be booked in advance and comes at an extra fee, which you... More

I spent a full week at Track & Trail, and left duly impressed... Let's start with the staff: all of them are friendly, and did their utmost to make me feel comfortable. Small requests were taken care of immediately, adding just that little extra. A barkeep who remembers your favourite drinks: tiny details, but invaluable! I had the privilege and... More
