Tafika was one of the camps we just had to go back to after our first visit to Africa last year. We thought last year was so good, cant believe how much better this year was!!! After a very hot and heart stopping, exciting walk from Crocodile camp where we saw so much, we crossed the river and were taken...

The location of the camp is beautiful, the cabins are spacious, the food delicious. The owners and staff were great and the wildlife was spectacular. We combined this camp with its bush camp Chikoko where we did walking safaris which was unforgettable. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and well trained. We did the microlight flight and it was worth it....

Tafika is a welcoming, comfortable and beautiful camp set on the banks of the Luangwa river. The owners and staff made our stay an absolute treat and the wildlife was spectacular. We split our safari time between long walks in the bush in the mornings and afternoon/night drives. The walks were a great way to learn about the flora and...

The setting of this camp is beautiful and the rooms were spacious with wonderful views of the river. The only electricity was at the main lodge but there were plenty of outlets so there was no problem charging cameras and tablets, all you really need on a trip like this. Everything about this camp was lovely--the setting, the game drives,...

Wonderful place perfectly run by its owners, with very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides, great wildlife and fantastic varied food and delicious bread and cakes. Attentive staff all round and a great atmosphere, with a awful lot of safari tome on offer both in vehicle and on food and excellent night drives too.

Tafika is a very special place. From the accommodation, food, hospitality, setting and guiding - none of it could have been better. We only had one night which wasn't nearly enough, and were made to feel like part of the family. A lot of the guests had stayed there many times, and it was easy to see why.

Far from everything, this last bastion of no technology is glorious. The atmosphere is like none, all are treated as equals, and you feel like you're part of a big friendly family. The food and company is outstanding. The rooms are indescribably, simply, beautiful. The setting above the Luangwa river, is phenomenal. It is not for those who want for...

On our 90-minute drive from Mfuwe Airport with guide Lloyd to Tafika, we saw enough wildlife to make our visit worthwhile. And that was just the beginning. We were delighted to find that Tafika is so beautiful. The entire camp, from public space to reed chalets, is thoughtfully designed to be pleasing to the eye and comfortable. An added delight...

We stayed at Tafika in July 2013 and we really enjoyed it. The camp is located in a very beautiful surrounding with great views over the river. The huts are very spacious and clean. The atmosphere is very friendly and you soon start feeling at home. The game drives and walking safaris are great and so is wildlife in and...

We really enjoyed our time at Tafika. The game drives were great. Our guide (John) realised pretty quickly that we were interested in birds and smaller animals as well as the big stuff and he found some lovely turacoes and green pigeons for us in a fruiting fig. We only has 2 nights here - in hindsight I wish it...
