"A relaxed, friendly camp"
Again, the house keeping was perfect, the food just wonderful and all the staff were welcoming and friendly. The activities at Tena Tena were fantastic, our guide Nyambe introduced us to so many new species of birds and animals. His knowledge and skills enhanced our experience and he was patient in our desire to see as much as possible, especially birds.
Again, we can’t praise the staff at Tena Tena enough, thank you all so much for a wonderful and memorable holiday." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
Great guiding from John - the highlight was seeing a lion stand-off against a herd of buffalo." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
Staff extremely friendly, service exceptional with high quality meals all the time.
Plenty to see on all the game drives and even doing a walking safari did not leave us disappointed - -there was a lot of game to see in very peaceful surroundings - hardly another jeep in sight. The guides were exceptional and how they see such a variety of animals in the dark / night drives is a credit to them.
Our second camp which just added to our experience, running out of adjectives to praise this place enough." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia

"The finish of the holiday"
It was great to meet some new travelers and to be able to swap stories of the bush. Shame I could not stay longer but I will be back.
For the trip as a whole I had set myself a target of 100 birds, in the end I achieved 105 thanks to some diligent spotting by Sebastian. I also videoed a Hippo fight and a porcupine in the open. Also a honey badger which was not in the far distance." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia
"First Time to Tena Tena"
Tents were great although going to outdoor bathroom required unzipping the tent. That was a bit annoying.
Our guide Sebastian was very good." See all these reviews: 16n in Zambia
"Revisit Tena Tena to see friends- the staff"
Bertram was welcoming as always and lovely to meet Sebastian again this time as a guide rather than a spotter." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia

"Lovely tented camp in S. Luangwa"
S. Luangwa is a leopard country, so look for excellent sightings of this beautiful cat. However, I started missing already my dogs from Nsefu.
It got pretty hot during midday in the tent - so be prepared for this time of the year. Again I was only with one more guest. It got lively when a group of travel agents visited us. Excellent Chenin Blanc wine and food." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia
"A different feel but very good"
Game drives again are good though perhaps you don't see quite as much or it could be that I had seen so much already." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
