We stayed here for 3 nights and had an amazing time. The tent experience was a different one and from the other lodges and was quite warm at night and certainly very noisy! Hippos walking past the tent and having an argument during the night did not lead to a peaceful nights sleep! Amazing wildlife and a fantastic guide, Bertram... More

We'd rate Tena Tena Camp an 11 out of 10 because, for us, it was absolutely perfect and we loved every second there. It is a beautiful camp, beautifully maintained with an outstanding staff (and of course guides) and fantastic food. We love tented camps and this is one of the best we've ever seen (and we've seen quite a... More

Tena Tena is a luxury tent camp surrounded by hippos and lions at night. They take care of everything. The individual tents are very clean and comfortable. The open air bath with low walls allowed you to see out while showering or shaving. The fire pit allowed everyone to gather and share stories in the evening or during afternoon tea.... More

The staff are amazing, Christabel always there with a ready smile even when the leopards have accompanied her to her room. Toast over the fire before the sun is up and great game drives, Nyambe is a very good... More

This wasn't my first camp, so it didn't have that advantage, nor was it the most prolific camp from a wildlife standpoint-(although there were plenty of sightings) BUT, it was my favorite camp of the four I used. It had the best vibe, the most comfortable hostess in Christobel, and the friendliest staff. All game drives were wonderful, but as... More

Our group of seven stayed at Robin Pope's Tena Tena camp in South Luangwa National Park, one of two camps inside the park situated on a bend of the Luangwa river.
