Each camp we go to seems to excel itself in providing views, accommodation and food. We just can't decide which camp we prefer and ,really, why should you have to? We stayed for 3 or 4 nights at each camp as we found that by doing that we were able to 'settle in' and relax and really take in what each camp had to offer.
Our view from our room here over the Luangwa river was spectacular and the room was enormous! We had the usual giant, comfortable bed that we love, an ensuite and separate toilet, plus another room that we used as a change room. What a fantastic hut/chalet it is!
We didn't bump into Dixon this time as he was out and about and we saw him miles away (he's the 'almost' resident bull elephant) but we did see elephants at the watering area drinking plus all manner of other animals and birds.
Sam and the staff were brilliant (again!) and the food was exceptional.
Can't wait to come back!!
