Part of the family owned Remote Africa Safaris, Crocodile River Camp offers three chalets that all rest beneath a grove of spectacular Muchenja (Ebony) trees. The camp overlooks a dried dambo and small waterhole and is perfectly situated to enable guests to observe the daily wildlife action as it unfolds.
The chalets are a delightful combination of natural building materials and imaginative architecture. The end result is a simple, comfortable and personal experience for guests. A stay at this camp offers clients the oportunity to walk in an exclusive area and a stay is often combined with a night or two at Chikoko Tree Camp.
