On a wide bend of the Luangwa River in the Nsefu Sector of the South Luangwa National Park sits the small and remote Tena Tena (operated by Robin Pope Safaris). With private views of the Luangwa River and surrounded by mahogany trees, this tented camp is stylish and with a charmingly traditional nature.
Accommodation comes in the form of 5 spacious tents each with their own small veranda on which to sit and look out upon your wild surrounds. Rooms come complete with open air en suite bathrooms that are quite large and a king sized bed. The tents are well spaced out, affording guests significant privacy.
The main area is a large tented space that is split over two levels and a pleasant place to relax for guests. With built-in seating and a warm place to sit between activities, the lower level is a comfortable escape while the upper level provides another lounge area, dining table and a bar.
Both game viewing and guiding is of a particularly high standard at Tena Tena, with exciting walking safaris allowing guests to get to grips with the Africa wilds on foot, accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable guide.
How to get to Tena Tena Camp
1 hour flight with from Lusaka into Mfuwe Airport (can also be accessed from Livingstone and Lilongwe in Malawi) followed by a 1 hour 15 minute road transfer to camp through some colourful village life then game viewing opportunity through the park.
Activities at Tena Tena Camp
Walking safaris, game drives (day and night) and cultural/village tours.
The sheer volume of game at Tena Tena was extraordinary especially antelope and hippo not to mention running into a herd (wrong collective I know - should it be "tower"?)of about 20 Giraffe and having a lion come to visit us in camp on our first night was to say the least "exciting".Read full trip review
