Tafika Camp is seasonally operated and is open during the dry season from the 1st of May to the 15th of November. Due to it’s remote location, exclusive sightings are the norm as there is very low congestion in the area.

Tafika Camp’s location on the east bank of the Luangwa River north of the Nsefu Sector makes it ideal for those who enjoy the serenity of the bush. Nestled under the canopy of giant leadwood trees, the camp provides stunning views of the river affording ample opportunity to witness elephants crossing, hippos wallowing and kingfishers patiently pursuing their prey. Choosing a quiet spot to enjoy the view is an ideal way to relax between activities. The food is excellent and is supplemented by a wonderful supply of fresh salad, fruit and vegetables from our vegetable garden.

With six spacious chalets (including a family chalet and honeymoon suite) all built from natural materials, Tafika can accommodate up to 14 guests in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Built round the trunks of stunning sausage trees, these thatched chalets all have en suite facilities with showers open to the stars.

Tafika is the perfect tranquil base from which guests can enjoy walking safaris, unique cycling trails and game drives (day & night). With the abundance of diverse game populations in the Nsefu sector, and some of the most experienced guides in the valley, Tafika Camp offers guests an unforgettable African safari.

Tafika also has two hides which offer the opportunity of game viewing in-between activities. Hides overlook the camp waterhole which is frequented by herds of elephant, bushbuck, puku, impala, mongoose and several bird species.

The game drives accommodate a maximum of four guests guaranteeing unobstructed viewing and photography and enabling all guests on board to share in the knowledge and insights of the skillful guides. Dedicated spotters on night drives allow the guide to pay full attention to the animals, the road and to the safety and comfort of our guests.

There is also the opportunity for a cultural visit to nearby Mkasanga Village where the school is supported by Remote Africa Safaris’ Tafika Fund in the form of books, educational materials, teachers’ salaries and pupils’ scholarships. Some of the promising students are then supported for subsequent tertiary education courses. Guests are always welcomed at Mkasanga with great enthusiasm and plenty of smiles and the Mkasanga Choir delights in the opportunity to serenade visitors with the harmonies of Africa.
