Tafika Camp (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia


Tafika Camp nestles in the shade of giant leadwood trees in the South Luangwa National Park. The camp is home to John and Carol Coppinger, Tafika's owners and resident managers. Tafika, with its relaxed family atmosphere, is open to guests during both the dry season (May to November) and the spectacular green season (Feb to April).

Situated just outside the Nsefu Sector of the Park, Tafika is able to offer microlighting as an optional extra to the excellent drives and walks of the routine day. Tafika's staff is mostly from Mkasanga Village nearby and the villagers welcome visits from guests fascinated by their unmaterialistic way of life in this warm heart of Africa.

Tafika Camp remains open for the excitement of the first rains in early November. The immense power of the early thunder storms and the sudden return to life of everything around is spectacular. Baby impalas begin to drop around the 5th of November, almost doubling the impala population over night; a time of rebirth. Tafika Camp is seasonally operated from: 1st May to 30 November (Dry season).


Tafika accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 spacious chalets constructed with local materials, each with 2 double beds, en-suite toilet and power shower.

There is one family chalet.

The nights in the Luangwa are pure magic - secure beneath cool cotton sheets and a mosquito net, you are lulled into deep sleep by distant lion grunts and hyena whoops fading into the night.

Activities / Wildlife

Game Drives

Morning game drives leave early after a light buffet while afternoon/night drives depart camp following afternoon tea and cake. All the safari vehicles are open, comfortable and accommodate 4 to 6 passengers, allowing good photographic opportunities.

Sundowners are usually taken overlooking the Luangwa River, after which a spotlight is brought into play, revealing the fascinating world of Africa's nocturnal wildlife.

Walking Trails and Bush Camps

Remote Africa Safaris now operate 2 bushcamps in the South Luangwa National Park: Chikoko and Crocodile Camps. Both camps are situated in the riverine area of the Luangwa River, on the opposite bank and slightly upstream of Tafika. The area is exceptionally scenic, contains an abundance of wildlife and is unique in being designated a Wilderness Area.

This means there are no roads: all game viewing is done on foot. It is highly unlikely that other Tourists will be sighted! The scene remains virtually unchanged since 17th December 1866 when David Livingstone crossed the Luangwa at 'Perekani', just a few hundred meters from Chikoko.

Guests may choose either 3 or 4 day walking trails with 1 to 2 nights at each camp. Trails are limited to a maximum of 6 guests at a time, thereby ensuring a personalized and quality wilderness experience.
