Set in an oasis of calm along the bank of the Luangwa River, Croc Valley Camp was fully renovated in February 2005. Croc Valley Camp has heeded the world's carbon foot print call and is completely environmentally friendly. The chalets are built from local natural products and in order to escape the off-season floods, they are raised on stilts, providing a fantastic viewpoint from which to see the wildlife.
