During the green season most of the lodges in South Luangwa close up due to th difficultly associated with its seeing animals in the high grass... That was NOT the case with Track and Trail river camp. From the first contact with Kirsten to the arrival, to the "special dinner setup", Kirsten and her amazing team were there to accommodate...

My wife and I camped here for four nights to explore South Luangwa national park. The camp area is flat and spacious with thatch-covered pitches (elephant/hippo protection), and a low electric fence and night patrol guards also offer security. Each pitch is close to a braii area and water tap, and the clean ablution block is only a short walk...

We have really enjoyed our stay in Zambia at Track and Trail River Lodge. Perfect hospitality and kindest service of Kerstin, Peter and his entire staff. Restaurant food and meals were great and always exceptionally tasteful. The accommodations are very spacious, where we had a chalet with view on the river, just very special. We often had great visits of...

Perfect place to stay in this magnificent national park! We stayed in a double storey chalet at the riverside, which was very good. The Dutch owners Kirsten and Peter are very kind and everything is very well organized. The food is also good and most important the game drives were excellent! Thank you Vic for an excellent job!

I was part of a group that were on tour of the Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa National Parks. After a long journey from Lower Zambezi we stayed at Track and Trails for two nights. I was more than happy with the location. It was on the banks of the Luangwa River. We were able to see hippos, elephants, impalas...

I have recently stayed at Track and Trail River Camp while visiting South Luangwa and I really enjoyed the place and the people there.

A lovely camp overlooking the river with cricks and hippos, and only 5 mines to the NP gate. Friendly staff and nice ablutions and amenities inc a raised pool overlooking the river that all guest are welcome to use. Night drives are worth it, our guide Vic was very knowledgeable and care about the park. Quieter than other camps, it's...

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...

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,...
