Is the Tafika Camp for Me?
Tafika Camp’s location on the east bank of the Luangwa River, north of the South Park’s Nsefu Sector, makes it ideal for those who enjoy the peace and quiet of the bush. Extensive game viewing is combined with exciting activities such as daily day and night drives, mountain bike safaris, walking safaris, visits to the nearby Mkasanga Village, and microlighting in May (only available in May). Tafika also has two hides where visitors can watch game in between activities. Hides overlook the camp waterhole, which is visited by elephant, bushbuck, puku, impala, mongoose, and a variety of bird species.
The Nsefu sector has some of Africa’s best leopard viewing. This, combined with the abundance of diverse game populations; some of the valley’s most experienced guides; and the unusual and exhilarating safari activities available, results in an unforgettable African adventure. The Luangwa Valley is known as “The Leopard Valley” for good reason, and you have a very good chance of seeing several of these spotted beauties during your visit.
Tafika Camp is only open during the dry season, from the 1st of May to the 15th of November. Because of its remote location, exclusive sightings are the norm due to low congestion in the area.
Tafika Camp has six spacious chalets with en suite facilities that were built from natural materials around the trunks of stunning sausage and leadwood trees. Four of the chalets have twin double beds in each room; the honeymoon suite has an enormous king size bed; and the family suite is a final chalet with two rooms, a king size bed, and two doubles. The family chalet includes a hide that overlooks the camp’s waterhole.
