Cheap And Cheerful

BUDGET SAFARI Zambia

Looking for a value for money safari without compromising on the wildlife experience?

These lodges have been carefully selected for offering excellent safaris and for their superb locations. They offer a comfortable place to stay, good food and stunning views.

CROC VALLEY CAMP

It’s a rustic camp, but don’t be fooled – all the safari tents are en-suite, have hot running showers, fans and great views.

A relaxed feel runs through the camp. Swim in the pool, soak in the views from the bar or play a little pool. This is a budget-friendly and cheerful option, a great place to relax with friends in between game drives. The Croc Valley Camp is full of fun atmosphere, perfect for those who will be thirsty for a beer after a drive.

Important Accommodation Information: Camping and Savanna tents have access to the public bathrooms while budget rooms have their own bathroom as they are not en-suite, whereas the safari tents all have bathrooms en-suite. The budget rooms have air con, as do tents 5 & 6 (which are slightly more up market than the rest, so do request availability for tents 5 & 6 when booking).

Extra Value: Please note that for the 2 Night package you have 3 game drives and for the 3 Night package you have 5 game drives. This is generally more than our partners in crime… and the price is generally lower – Help us help you!
