Project Description


Remote Africa Safaris operates camps in South and North Luangwa National Parks. Tafika Camp and the intimate walking operation: Chikoko Trails, which comprises Chikoko Tree Camp and Crocodile River Camp are in the South Park. In the secluded and magical North Luangwa, Mwaleshi Camp hugs a scenic bend on the Mwaleshi River and Takwela Camp, newly built in 2019 at the stunning Mwaleshi and Luangwa confluence. Remote Africa have signed a management agreement with African Parks to take over management of Shoebill Island Camp in the Bangweulu wetlands from 2021 which adds a new and beautiful Zambian destination to the Remote Africa Safaris portfolio.

All camps are situated in private and remote locations which allow for an exclusive safari experience. They are locally handcrafted from natural materials allowing for a rustic, yet luxurious, bush experience. Remote Africa Safaris prides itself on its warm, accommodating staff members, experienced and knowledgeable guides, excellent food and small personalised camps.

Remote Africa Safaris is conscientious about its surrounding wildlife and the local community. Remote Africa Safaris is actively involved, through their own initiative, The Tafika Fund, in sustainably uplifting the surrounding community and Mwanya area. The Tafika Fund was set up by John and Carol Coppinger in 1998 and has been managed by Carol ever since. Through donations from generous guests and tour operators (as well as substantial financial funding from Remote Africa), The Tafika Fund has managed to successfully implement and maintain a number long-term initiatives over the years.

The company provides financial support to both the Conservation South Luangwa (CSL) and North Luangwa Conservation Project (NLCP) and John Coppinger often conducts aerial game surveys and surveillance flights in his microlight for the Zambian Carnivore Program (ZCP)
