    Beautiful location but grumpy staff/terrible food

    The place has an amazing location and a wonderful bar/restaurant/swimming pool area. The partly negative review is due to some of the staff being impolite/rude/not service minded at all (some grumpy older men in the bar) and which destroyed some of the atmosphere. The daily manager tried his best, being extremely nice and helpful, but unfortunately he did not compensate for some of the less friendly staff. Another thing was the food- which was a total catastrophe. It took a long time to get the food and when it came it was most of the time cold (and tasteless). On a couple of occasions we asked the staff to warm it - but it came back still cold! We gave up and ate cold food most of the time. It’s a pity because the place has such a potential

    Beautiful spot on the river. They offer adorable self-catering prices which is refreshing. Showers were hot and food from the restaurant was good. The camp is a bit old and is currently under construction to update many parts of the camp.

  • 8.0Very good

    Was great in terms of being right on the Luangwa River with lots of Hippos and crocs visible all day, close to the park entrance, elephants, giraffes and antelope walking in the field/bush in front of our Chalet (#3) during the day and night, was a great Zambian wildlife experience. Chalet was definitely a bit rough living (but we expected that), hard beds, ants and mice and even a baboon came inside and stole our bananas off the counter while we had our backs turned making tea, but that was part of the enjoyable experience. The chalet kitchen had all the basics so we cook most of our own meals. Mozi nets were in good condition, but did not need this time of year. Overall we loved the experience (my Dad and I) and it was a step up from tenting.

    The place to be!!!!

    Our stay was lovely, we were in the eco tent which is perfect: comfortable beds and space. Common bathroom/toilet very clean and close to the tent (but not too close!). Very friendly staff and awesome location.

    Relaxing place to stay

    I spent 16 nights at Croc valley and found the staff friendly and attentive. There was lots of wildlife in and around the camp which made the stay interesting if you can't get to the game reserve. They have a lovely swimming pool that I enjoyed using in the evenings after a hot days work.

    Great location on banks of Luangwa River bordering the South Luangwa National Park; spacious a/c tent with river view. Viewing deck over the river.

  • 4.0Fair

    I think the service needs to be improved, we arrived at around 10.00 hours, no one was willing to attend to us, it took about 20 minutes before an individual was assigned to show us the rooms. Cleanness of the rooms left much to be desired so was the common toilets, I think they are cleaned just once a day, given that they are common toilets for all, they should be cleaned at least three times a day.
