The camp is relaxed and comfortable, but extremely well organised behind the scenes. View to the river was superb. Guides all excellent.
Lived up (exceeded) expectations in every way." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia; 7n in Rwanda
"Rustic and Remote Experience"
Without another camp nearby, we had the sense that the animals were less accustomed to safari vehicles and as a result were slightly more skiddish than those at other camps. However, this was balanced by us not seeing other vehicles, and we still felt we had excellent sightings.
We were able to make a visit to the nearby village of Mkasanga, and share song and dance with local Zambians. Tafika extensively supports this community, and it was very rewarding to be able to directly see the benefits of our tourism." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
Our Guide, Mukupa (sp?) was very knowledgable and so friendly and personable. We really enjoyed our walking morning and canoe ride with Brian (?) and both Carol and John were delightful. What a fascinating past history they have had!
The trip to the Village they have 'adopted' was a highlight of the stay at Tafika. " See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia
We were lucky to be guided again by Alex Phiri and had some wonderful experiences and sightings. Heather Mansfield, Rona Leppens and all the team worked tirelessly to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Rona and the chefs went to great lengths to meet our dietary requests and all the meals were delicious.
The accommodation as usual was first class, very comfortable whilst remaining an authentic African bush camp. The range of activities at Tafika are considerable and each time we visit, we just wish that we had booked a longer stay. You never get bored!
We have been able to experience first hand the benefits of the Tafika Trust, and we would encourage anyone who can, to support the Trust." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
It was an opportunity to learn about the work they do with the local community through the Tafika Fund.
We visited the local village and school and were inspired by the young people we met." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia
