Tafika, owned by John and Carol Coppinger, is superbly situated just to the north of the Nsefu sector of the South Luangwa National Park on a magnificent stretch of the Luangwa River.

It is in an exceptional wildlife area and offers quick, easy access to both the Nsefu sector and the National Park on the opposite (west) bank. The camp consists of six comfortable grass and pole chalets catering for a maximum of 14 guests. With so few guests the camp offers a highly personalised, friendly service and flexible game-viewing activities. In addition to traditional walks and game drives Tafika offers unique boating and canoeing safaris between mid-February and mid-April when the river level is high.

Your host, John, is not only a brilliant naturalist guide but also a highly skilled pilot, and offers guests early morning micro-light flights – a great way to start the days game-viewing. A stay at Tafika combines well with its two satellite camps Chikoko and Crocodile Camp.
