"Wild dogs at Tena Tena!"
Other game was excellent - huge herds of impala and puku, small groups of kudu, magical giraffes, endless elephants and hippos, a pair of mating leopards and lions on all three days out - inldung a sleeping pride on the way to Mfuwe airport on our last day. And the birds continue to amaze - such colours and fabulous sightings - including three lilac breaster rollers doing a dare devil display for us.
Christabel and the team are wonderful hosts and the food, accommodation and hospitality are second to none." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia
"Great feeling of being in the bush"
Meeting Cristobel and Thomas again was great. The river crossing was a magical experience!
The walking transfer to Nsefu (about 3 1/2 hours ) was a magical experience" See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
"Beautiful Tena Tena!"
Bumped into wild dog's twice, pack of sixteen, and a pack of six, was a huge plus, did not expect to see them, also had wonderful sightings of leopard's, not just fleeting but she actually posed very nicely on a tree for us, wonderful photographs of that moment, elephant's, Eland, baboon's, lion's and their cub's, watching them get ready for their hunt at dusk, the list is endless, particularly pleased at seeing the majestic Martial Eagle!"

"Tena Tena - 4 nights"
We had excellent morning walks here. The professional behaviour of guides and scouts is notable and we felt very comfortable walking with them. We also had very good drives, even the evening that had a lot of wind and blown sand gave us a white-tailed mongoose :)
As a highlight, we also saw wild dogs here (our second pack). We thoroughly enjoyed our time - the whole experience was great." See all these reviews: 16n in Zambia

"Tena Tena at last"
We enjoyed excellent game drives and a memorable walk with Bertram, where we came close to many giraffes towering above us." See all these reviews: 16n in Zambia
"Great experience in every aspect"
Special note on the food! I'm a picky eater and so, my fellow travelers were dumbstruck when I tried and liked, no Really Liked, everything served. Hate lentils...the lentil soup didn't taste like lentils. If was fabulous. Don't like pork...the pork salad was out of this world. I couldn't figure out how to kidnap the chef without going over the luggage limit. Thank you.
And, Nyambe....keep working on the tropical booboo." See all these reviews: 10n in Zambia; 2n in Zimbabwe
