Tafika Camp

Vintage A lodge or tented camp with very good food and service, and many have swimming pools. The rooms/tents are of good size but perhaps not as large as "Classic" properties. Facilities could be "Classic," but located in a sub-standard game viewing area.

Tafika is situated in the northern part of the Nsefu Sector of Zambia's South Luangwa National Park. It is the base camp for Remote Africa Safaris, a family-run safari operation with a collection of four extremely high-quality safari camps. Each reed chalet has two queen sized double beds, under-cover veranda, en-suite bathroom with double vanities, flush loos, hot and cold running water and solar powered lighting. There is one large family chalet offering two bedrooms, one with a king-sized bed, the other with two double beds and a spacious bathroom to share. Ideal for guests travelling with children. The honeymoon chalet has one extra large king bed and a double shower under the stars.

The camp provides amazing views of the river offering a wonderful place to relax when not enjoying walking safaris, cycling trails, micro lighting, or day & night game drives.

Traveler Feedback

Tafika Camp was a very pleasant open facility with everyone helpful and engaging.  Food and particularly lunches were great.  We had the experience of tracking a lion on foot and discovering him lazily laying in the shade watching us as we watched a giraffe. Morning tea in the bush with a fire started with a stick and a board was memorable.  On a night drive we spotted a mother and baby leopard.  Before we knew it another leopard entered the area and a brief territorial dispute took place.  Pretty intense!  We also saw a wild dog take down an impala and then leave the area for a few minutes.  Sixteen dogs returned and in a few minutes the kill was entirely gone.  An impromptu visit to a nearby village that is home to all support staff and local guides was a fun and unique experience.  We talked to villagers, visited the school, children sang to us and we all danced!  Local guide Lloyd was particularly charming as he entertained us with a bush quiz as we waited for the second flight to Old Mondoro.

What a great trip, what a great adventure and experience!  Thank you so much!
