Tafika Camp

On the peaceful west bank of the Luangwa River, Tafika Camp accommodates a maximum of 14 guests in 6 spacious, thatched chalets built with organic materials around the base of towering ancient sausage trees. One of the chalets is specially designed for honeymooners, with an enormous king bed, whilst another has two bedrooms, making it ideal for families.

The Nsefu sector of the South Luangwa National Park offers some of the finest gameviewing in Africa, with leopards a standout attraction. Day and night drives, mountain bike excursions and walking safaris are all possible at Tafika Camp, with all outings led by enthusiastic, experienced guides. You can also visit Mkasanga Village nearby, an insightful activity which involves touring a school and being entertained by the local choir.

Meals and drinks at Tafika Camp are regularly enjoyed outdoors beneath shady trees during the heat of day or beside a crackling fire at night. Breakfasts are continental, lunches buffet-style whilst dinners are three course affairs savoured beneath the stars. Before your afternoon game activity, snack on freshly baked cakes with coffee or tea, then cap off an evening game drive or walk with a refreshing sundowner cocktail.

Zambia Overview

Why should I travel to Zambia? Apart from being the site of the magnificent Victoria Falls, Zambia also offers game-rich wildlife parks that are relatively unspoiled by mass tourism. For the more adventurous, there are walking safaris and canoeing trips along the Zambezi River.

When is the best time to see animals in Zambia? Gameviewing is best during the dry season from Jun-Oct when the animals congregate at remaining waterholes.

What is the climate like in Zambia? There are 3 distinct seasons – cool and dry from May-July (23°-25°C), hot and dry from August-October (30°-40°C), and warm and wet from November-April (28°-35°C).

What can I combine Zambia with? Zambia’s neighbours – Botswana, Malawi or Zimbabwe – which all offer amazing scenery and wildlife. Or combine with South Africa and explore picturesque Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands.

How to get to Zambia? There are regular flights daily from Johannesburg in South Africa to Lusaka, where you can board connecting flights to a range of safari camps. There are also regular flights from Jo’burg into Livingstone, a large town close to the Victoria Falls. It is also possible to fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and then transfer by road to Zambia.
