Tena Tena

Tena Tena is a remote camp within the South Luangwa National Park on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River. A grove of mahogany trees shades seven large custom-made tents. From the thatched dining room and bar, guests can watch the elephants, hippo and antelope on the riverbanks. Nearby there is a spectacular lagoon, Buca Buca, where the entire morning can be spent quietly sitting while the game comes down to feed and drink. Accommodation is in large, walk-in tents with en-suite bathrooms. Walking is the best way to discover the secrets of the bush. Such safaris are led by an experienced naturalist and accompanied by an armed game scouts. Game-drives are conducted in open, four-wheel drive vehicles by knowledgeable safari guides. Special game viewing seats provide excellent viewing and opportunities for photography. After watching the sun set over the river with a sundowner in hand, the drives continue with a powerful spotlight to illuminate the nocturnal creatures of the bush: owls, bush babies, shrew and genets, hunting lions and the graceful leopard. Evenings are spent relaxing at camp, enjoying wonderful conversation, good food, all under the magnificent expanse of the African sky.
