Home to John and Carol Coppinger, the founders of Remote Africa Safaris, Tafika is a small and apparently fairly rustic camp on the banks of the Luangwa River, in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. Its location on the northern side of the beautiful Nsefu Sector makes Tafika – along with its two satellite bushcamps on the other side of the river – the most northerly of South Luangwa's operational safari camps. This allows most activities to be carried out in quiet areas of the park that see very few other visitors.

Our view of Tafika

Although Tafika's reed-and-thatch rooms give it a deliberately rustic feel, don't be deceived into thinking that this is a basic bushcamp. It is one of the very best camps in Africa, with highly experienced guiding, excellent food and consistently high standards throughout. It is also one of the longest-standing, and last-remaining owner-run camps in Zambia. John and Carol and their children have called Tafika 'home' for more than 20 years, and they remain dedicated to it. You won't find a camp that retains such a genuinely 'bushy' feel, combined with food, furnishing and hospitality of such a high quality.
