      Tena Tena

      One of Zambia's Premier Bush Camps

      The South Luangwa National Park boasts verdant floodplains, mopane woodlands and indigenous hardwood forests, and a mighty river that attracts more than 60 different species of mammals and 400 species of birds. It’s a natural utopia and one of Africa’s truly great wildlife sanctuaries. Tena Tena, meaning “temporary home”, is located on a wide sweep of the meandering Luangwa River, in the quiet Nsefu sector of the park. The camp is located high on the banks of the river, near the Buca Buca lagoon. For all its strengths, Tena Tena is one of the most highly regarded camps in Zambia. Common areas at Tena Tena are built completely from local materials including grass, bamboo and Mukwa, a local hardwood. Meals are served in the dining room overlooking the Luangwa River where guests can watch elephants, hippos and other game come to the water’s edge. Accommodations consist of four guest tents with one honeymoon tent. A grove of mahogany trees shade the large tents. The interiors are stylish and elegant, beautifully furnished in rich colors, and reminiscent of Hemingway’s Africa. The Persian rugs, hand-dyed Indian cotton bedspreads and Bedouin cushions create a homey and attractive environment. The en-suite open-air bathrooms are made of woven bamboo and provide every amenity including heavy linen bathrobes and quality toiletries. Each tent is carefully positioned to incorporate a stunning view of the Luangwa River or waterhole, where game is often seen. The front of the tent is designed to roll up completely allowing guests to view their surroundings from the privacy of their veranda. The camp is located along a game-rich stretch of the Luangwa River, therefore activities at Tena Tena center around the abundance of game in this area. Guests are offered the opportunity to enjoy game viewing from open safari vehicles during day and night drives, or participate in game walks which provide a more intimate experience in the bush. South Luangwa game walks are led by a qualified guide and an armed game scout.
