Tena Tena Camp, Luangwa Valley, Zambia

Remote 6 tent camp beside the Luangwa River, famous for its walking safaris

Available as part of a tailor-made itinerary designed for you by our safari specialists

Tena Tena is a remote camp situated in the famed Nsefu area of the South Luangwa National Park, owned by Robin Pope Safaris. Tena Tena's six comfortable and stylish tents ensure a unique wilderness safari experience, set in the shade of a mahogany grove, overlooking the Luangwa River. With its rich game-viewing opportunities, the camp is particularly well known for its walking safaris, led by very knowledgeable guides and escorted by armed National Park scouts.


There are 6 large and very comfortable tents, all with commanding views over the river. Each tent has a private veranda and a dressing room with open air bathroom.

Activities & Experiences

Activities are entirely chosen by the guests and tailored to their requirements. Guests have the option of a walk or a game drive. The drives include morning, afternoon and night drives. An all day drive, with a picnic lunch, is also available. The walks are led by very knowledgeable guides, and escorted by armed National Park scouts. The standard of the guiding is outstanding. Guests can also visit the local village of Kwaza and interact with the villagers and learn about their way of life.

Facilities & Services

The camp is small and intimate in nature. The bar and dinning area are open structures with lovely views over the river and waterhole, and are the perfect place to share tales of what you’ve seen that day. 

Weather & Seasons

Zambia has a moderate to sub-tropical climate with three distinct seasons: from November to March is the Emerald, or the rainy season, April to July is Zambia's winter, when the weather is cool and dry, and August to October is summer, when the weather is hot and dry. In terms of game-viewing, the drier months, meaning a higher concentration of game at the permanent water sources, are a superb time to visit.

The camp is closed from November to March.

Getting Here

10 hour international flight from London to Lusaka followed by a 1 hour light aircraft flight to Mfuwe. It's then a 30 minute transfer to the camp.
