Remote Africa - Chikoko Tree Camp

South Luangwa

Part of the family owned Remote Africa Safaris, Chikoko Tree Camp is situated 8km upstream from Tafika. Here three chalets are raised above the ground ensuring that they sit, rather romantically, within the surrounding tree canopies. The Chikoko Tree Camp's uniquely raised en-suite chalets enhance the views of the spectacular surrounding acacia grove, the array of wildlife that frequent it and the associated wildlife activity that unfolds throughout the day. The camp is an exclusive walking only area and is normally combined with a night or two at Crocodile Camp.
