I just returned from 10 nights of Robin Pope. Two nights and three days were spent at spectacular Tena Tena. From the leopard, hippos, elephants and impala right outside our tent to the thrill of tracking lions and their kill on foot (and being very successful) - this was an extraordinary experience. The staff, the food, the wine and the... More

We stayed the last 2 nights of a 14 safari in South Luangwa. There were few people until the last afternoon so we were very fortunate in being able to choose exactly what we wanted to do. The tents were good, although I prefer to have a mosquito net rather than rely on the tent to keep them out at... More

We spent 3 nights at Tena Tena . The rooms/tents are well spaced out and are very comfortable. The main eating/drinking area is well designed and spacious enough for people to be social but not crowded. Meals at a large table allows people ( guests and hosts) to get to know one another in a casual atmosphere. The game drives/walks... More

Perfectly appointed tented camp set along the river bank. By day you'll hear the birds singing. By night, the grunting of hippos. Such a treat to be in nature. And to be in a camp that blends into the nature so perfectly. Set in a private concession, your afternoon game drives will turn into night drives, so you can also... More

I'm writing this review and comparing Tena Tena directly with Sanctuary Retreats Puku Ridge and more broadly with many other safari experiences with 'Wilderness' and '&Beyond'. For me, this 3 night stay falls somewhere between an 'average' and 'very good' rating. The Camp itself is fairly small regarding facilities but offers comfortable accomodation in the form of newish tents with... More

'New' Tena Tena camp is in a great location in the Nsefu Sector of Luangwa, well positioned for excellent game viewing and a riverside location. The general bar and restaurant are are contemporary and offer a relaxing central facility. The individual tented rooms are well appointed, functioning hot water showers and widely spaced for privacy. The team are friendly, hospitable... More

We transferred to Tena Tena from Nkwali, which we had been very sad to leave. Tena Tena is totally different however and we loved it. Truly hidden in the bush, and with only six tents, it blends beautifully into the landscape, and is of no threat to the animals, as proven by the abundance of wildlife in the camp itself.... More

As part of out 5 week visit to Africa we visited Tena Tena for two nights after visiting Uganda, Rwanda and Livingstone before moving on to another Robin Pope camp. The camp is in a good location on the River with plenty of wildlife around the camp. The "tents" are very comfortable with open air shower and toilet. Evening meal... More

We had visited the old Tena Tena 4 times so were eager to see the new camp opened last year. It is even better. A lovely site facing the river it now has large spacious tent accommodation with large bathrooms. There is plenty of space between tents giving a real sense of privacy. As ever with Robin Pope Safaris, the... More

Tena Tena is a very fine, intimate camp in the Nsefu Sector of South Luangwa NP. The new tents, outdoor shower and loo are very attractive and spacious, and the staff most attentive. The hippo chorus entertains day and night, and you can expect to hear munching near your tent at night. I was quite impressed with the amount of... More
