"Tena Tena has a real open outdoor atmosphere"
Our skilled guide, Bertram, was very observant, especially when he spotted a number of trees filled with vultures above a buffalo kill where lions were feeding.
Bertram drove us to Kawaza village on our final morning, where we visited the school, the medical clinic, and a traditional healer. We were also treated to a lunch of nshima, pumpkin leaves, and chicken, prepared by the village women. After lunch we were privileged to view traditional Lunda tribal dances performed by some of the women.
Following our visit to the village, Bertram proceeded to drive us to the Mfuwe airport, where he stayed with us until our flight left for Lusaka." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia
"Lion in camp"
The boiler in our tent (4??) kept going out, which was very annoying. Catherine was going to report it. We found the little dressing area between the bedroom and the bathroom very useful but very dark and hot. It was certainly more spacious than Nsefu.
Again, the guides were first class. Food was served in a different place each night, which was fun - we all enjoyed the Mongolian BBQ sitting outside by the camp fire. Catherine had to shoo us all to bed at 1030 as the generator needed to be switched off!" See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
"Back to relative civilisation at Tena Tena"
I don't think anyone would have come up to his standard as a guide, but to be fair to the staff at Tena Tena they were all very competent and pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. It was therefore a lovely surprise to have Jason for our last game drive, especially when he found us a leopard on a kill.
An airport transfer will never match up to 0430 from Tena Tena to Mfuwe!" See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"Treated like VIPS"
The game viewing over the four days was the best either of us have seen in over fourteen safaris." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
"Tena is a wonderful camp"
We love the leopards and owls especially. The guiding is superb, especially Kerry, the boss.
The food is great and the whole place is a superb package. an extra bonus is the Kawaza village and school - worth a visit by everyone, to see how rural Zambia works, and how the lodges contribute." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
