Home to John and Carol Coppinger, the founders of Remote Africa Safaris, Tafika is a small and apparently fairly rustic camp standing on the banks of the Luangwa River, on the north side of the beautiful Nsefu Sector of South Luangwa National Park. Tafika and its two satellite bushcamps are the most northerly of South Luangwa’s operational safari camps, and so activities are mostly in areas of the park which sees very few other visitors indeed.

Our view of Tafika

Although Tafika’s reed-and-thatch rooms give it a deliberately rustic feel – don’t be deceived, this isn’t a basic bushcamp. It is one of the very best camps in Africa, with highly experienced guiding, excellent food and consistently high standards of quality throughout. It is also one of the longest-standing, and last-remaining owner-run camps in Zambia. John & Carol and their children have called Tafika ‘home’ for 19 years or so, and they remain dedicated to it. You won’t find a camp which retains such a genuinely 'bushy' feel, with fundamentals which are of a higher quality.
