Where is it?
The camp enjoys a remote location in the far north of the South Luangwa National Park, and offers all the highlights of this great ecosystem. Located on a tight bend in the Luangwa River, and surrounded on three sides by the National Park, the camp itself lies nestled in the shade of giant leadwood trees, and is a hub of activity for big game: elephant, hippos, lion, and large herds of buffalo are frequently encountered in and around camp.
Why stay here?
This is a quiet part of the park, with few other camps sending vehicles this far north; it is, however, very game-dense with particularly high concentrations of predators.
Tafika offers a wide variety of quality activities. Game-viewing is conducted from open safari vehicle (day and night game-drives), on foot, and by mountain bike. For those seeking a different perspective on the wilderness and wildlife of the South Luangwa, Tafika offers early morning micro-light flights - a highlight of any visit to the South Luangwa.
Accommodation at Tafika consists of six very spacious and airy rooms. The ceiling, walls and doors are cleverly constructed of reeds and grasses, with no man-made materials whatsoever; and the cool floors are composed of brick and slate. Amenities include en suite bathrooms in every room, and large beds dressed in crisp cotton sheets. The common area of camp is homey and comfortable. The excellently prepared cuisine at Tafika is something to look forward to after an exciting morning or evening of game-viewing. The camp has its own extensive vegetable garden, guaranteeing fresh produce throughout the year
