Shaded by giant leadwood trees, Tafika’s gorgeous reed and thatch chalets, constructed entirely from natural materials, and are built around the trunks of kigelia, or sausage trees. Four of these roomy chalets offer a pair of double bed accommodations. There is a honeymoon chalet with a king size bed, and a two bedroom family suite which sleeps four comfortably. Each bed is draped with mosquito nets, so you can gaze through the opening at the side of the chalet and enjoy the star-drenched skies without interruption. Equipped with en suite facilities, these chalets offer private outdoor sinks and showers for an incredibly memorable and uniquely romantic bathing experience. Furnished with charming textiles and decor that compliment the natural wonder of the environment just outside the door, the rustic charm of these ‘tree house’ rooms will win you over as soon as you arrive. And the gentle lamplight of the evening hours will lull you into deep, peaceful sleep.
At Tafika Camp, exceptional game viewing is combined with exciting activities including daily day and night drives, mountain bike safaris, walking safaris, visits to the local Mkasanga Village and microlighting in May. Tafika also has two hides which offer the opportunity of game viewing in-between activities. Hides overlook the camp waterhole which is frequented by herds of elephant, bushbuck, puku, impala, mongoose and several bird species.
Tafika has six chalets made to a high standard from locally sourced poles, reed and thatch. These include four doubles or twins, a honeymoon suite and a larger chalet sleeping up to four guests.
A small veranda to the front of each chalet has a couple of chairs overlooking the Luangwa River. And a door at the back of the chalet leads to a private and enclosed bathroom that's completely open to the sky. Here, there's a large shower, with piping hot water at the turn of a tap, twin washbasins and, inside a small thatch-roofed hut – a very normal flushing toilet!
Thatched dining and lounge area. Private rooms with views. Several activies including mountain biking, microlighting (in May), game drives and walking safaris.
The fully-inclusive rate includes all meals, snacks and alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. Some rare or select alcoholic drinks may incur an additional charge.
