Having seen all the camps in the area and the fact it has been refurbished recently, there is no immediate ‘wow’ factor to Tena Tena when you arrive in camp. Tena Tena work on the experience more than the actual camp. Safari enthusiasts can really appreciate this camp with its great guiding and passion for the Luangwa valley itself which is infectious.
Tena Tena - The Details
Located in Nsefu sector of the South Luangwa National Park, Tena Tena is sandwiched between the Luangwa River and a handful of lagoons under a magnificent mahogany grove. It's a magnet for wildlife and you don't need to go too far for some very special sightings.
The six tented and thatched rooms are generously spaced with open-air bathrooms, giving guests plenty of privacy. Each room has their own window overlooking a stunning stretch of the river. There is also more than enough space for guests to relax in their own area of the camp, away from their rooms.
From Tena Tena you can explore this beautiful area on foot as well as by game drives. It's also one of the few bush camps that's open in the Green Season when you can experience the river from a boat when the water is high enough.
