Track and Trail River Camp is a wonderful lodge owned and run by the famous Luangwa photographer Peter Gerhards.

Peter Gerhard who owns and runs Track and Trail is a famed wildlife photographer and expert guide. At hand around the lodge for photo tips all the guides are also well versed in the art of taking a magical snap! The guiding here is great and photographic opportunities are often. Should you wish to enhance your skills further, Peter runs several workshops you can take part in and learn his tricks of the trade.
The rooms here are spacious and beautiful. Particularly good for those who are a little apprehensive of a tent, here you can enjoy four solid walls, mosquito nets, en-suite bathrooms, fans and some have a private balcony! They either face the river or the back of the property and are set on elevated platforms. They are perfectly secluded from each other and offer uninterrupted wildlife sightings. Ideal for those who don’t wish to have a siesta in the midday heat and want to continue their game viewing!
Track and Trail is on the banks of the Luangwa River, just outside the park. However, that doesn’t stop the animals! The park is unfenced so you will often find lots of antelope, elephants, giraffe, hippo and crocs in the area as well as a wealth of birds. Based next to the Mfuwe sector of the park, you will have game drives in this animal rich area. Keep an eye out for the famous lions; Ginger and Garlic who are very pale and of course Luangwa’s famous high leopard population!
