Our campsites overlooking the river have been consistently full – with overlanders, backpackers and even the big tour bus […]

Health at Croc Valley

Croc Valley Camp’s best feature is its wild surroundings, but this means it is a long way from the nearest hospital. With a bit of knowledge and good planning you can ensure you will be healthy and safe during your visit to South Luangwa National Park. The first thing to do is make sure you have good travel insurance that covers medical expenses and medical evacuation. We have cellphone reception and internet access to contact your insurance company if needed. If you take medication, make sure you bring enough for your whole stay. You should bring some basic first aid […]
