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

We have just returned from our honeymoon which included a two night stay at this fantastic location. The tents themselves are not your typical tent- they are very luxurious and we had no unwelcome visitors whilst we were there that we had experience at a previous camp. Everything was modern and clean and the outdoor bathroom was fantastic! I have... More

We had been to the "old" Tena Tena last year and while we loved our stay (the tent, the food, the guiding) we were disappointed that the camp was no longer overlooking the river (we love the sound of hippos!). We went to the "new" site of Tena Tena this month (we stayed there from Aug 14 for 3 nights)... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and what a gem it was. Staff, guides, chef,cleaners EVERYONE - so very helpful and friendly. Our guide was Bertram, who was patient and done his best to find me lions (as this was the last leg of our trip and still hadn't seen any!). On our last game drive, he received a call... More

The attention to detail, depth of knowledge (Bertram, our guide, rocks) and setting on the South Luangwa make this such a fabulous camp. Next year the camp will be at a new stunning location with a view of the river, under mahogany trees. We have confidence it will be great, too. The variety of wildlife here is staggering. Night drives... More

My wife and I stayed at Tena Tena Camp for three nights june 06th – 09th 2010. The camp is located at a beautiful spot along the Luangwa River. It offers perfect accomodation in maybe the best - because most authentic – tents we’ve ever seen. Big tents with zippers instead of door frames like most other tents have with... More
