Tafika Camp is a small, owner managed camp, located just outside the northern boundary of the Nsefu Sector in South Luangwa National Park. The camp stands on the banks of the Luangwa River with a wonderful vista of the surrounding landscape.
Tafika Camp is a small, rustic and comfortable camp that sits on the banks of the Luangwa River in the far north of South Luangwa National Park.
With just six chalets, made from local reed and thatch, this is an intimate camp with a unpretentious atmopshere. Each room is spacious with twin or double beds, using quality linen under walk-in mosquito nets. The furnishings made from local wood and colourful fabrics combine perfectly to provided a very comfortable yet genuine bushcamp style. Bathroom facilities are en-suite with sparkling rainbows in the delightful outdoor showers!
One of the chalets is designed for honeymooners which is slightly larger with a huge bed and two showers for "simultaneous" showering! Whilst another has two bedrooms and a shared bathroom designed with privacy in mind for a small family or group.
The main bar and dining area has comfortable chairs and a large circular dining table whilst meals are a relaxed affair and often taken outside with everyone eating together.
The relaxed and friendly atmosphere at Tafika is very much down to excellent hosting of John and Carol Coppinger, the owners and founders of Remote Africa safaris, who live here with their family. The camp also has some of the most experienced and long serving guides within the region which guarantees a high level of knowledge and expertise.
The camp offers an excellent range of activities which include day and night drives in open vehicles (only two rows of seats), walking safaris, mountain bike trails and microlight flights. In addition the nearby Mkasanga Village welcomes guests interested in their culture and way of life.
If you want to venture further, then Tafika and its Chikoko Trail camps (Treecamp and Crocdile Camp) combine well with their more distant sister-camp, Mwaleshi Bushcamp, in North Luangwa National Park.
