Project Description


Tena Tena is altogether beyond superlatives and must be one of the best safari camps in the whole of Africa”, The Times, London. This remote and small camp lies within the Nsefu Sector of the National Park on a double-tiered bank of the Luangwa River. A grove of mahogany trees shades the large custom-made tents and open-air bathrooms.

From the dining room and large tented bar, guests can watch the elephants, hippos and antelope on the riverbanks. Nearby there is a spectacular lagoon, Buca Buca, where a whole morning can be spent quietly sitting while the game comes down to feed and drink. Being remote and so small, we have these scenes to ourselves.
