General information

Tafika Camp in the South Luangwa National Park is the base camp of Remote Africa Safaris. It has been the home of John and Carol Coppinger since 1995 and has a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

The wonderful vista of the Luangwa River sets Tafika apart. A maximum of twelve guests enjoy the comfort and beauty of six spacious chalets nestled in the shade of giant lead wood trees. Facilities are en-suite with sparkling rainbows in the delightful outdoor showers!

Situated immediately outside the Nsefu Sector of the South Park, Tafika offers micro light flights and mountain biking as optional extras to the excellent drives and walks of a routine day. Mkasanga Village nearby welcomes guests interested in their culture and non-materialistic way of life in the warm heart of Africa.

The Emerald Season at Tafika (Feb – April) affords guests the opportunity of River Safaris with boating, canoeing, exceptional bird watching and breath taking scenes of the Luangwa in full flood - an awesome blend of rich greens and flooded channels overhung with groves of ebony trees.

Location

Situated in on the banks of the Luangwa River in South Luangwa National Park, Tafika camp is set in the remote wilderness some 2 hours drive from Mfuwe.

Activities

Tafika camp offers a very relaxing and peaceful base to enjoy walking safaris, bicycling trails and game drives (day & night). The beauty of Tafika is that you are unlikely to see other vehicles whilst game viewing and there is a great variety and plentiful supply of wildlife to see here. Better still is the opportunity to experience a thrilling micro light flight! Taking flight in the early morning sun gives you another perspective of the Luangwa Valley.

Rooms

With 6 spacious chalets (including one family chalet) all built from natural materials Tafika can accommodate a maximum of 14 guests at any one time. Built round the trunks of stunning sausage trees these thatched chalets all have en-suite facilities with the showers open to the stars.

Dining

Meals include an early morning light buffet of fruit, cereal and yoghurt before departing on your morning game viewing activity. After the morning activity, a buffet lunch is provided with plenty of choice and fresh salads picked from Tafika's abundant garden. A three-course dinner under the night skies in the company of fellow guests and guides is served. After dinner drinks around the camp fire brings your special day to an end.
