Tena Tena Camp

South Luangwa National Park

Tena Tena Camp is nestled under a grove of Mahogany trees’ on the banks of the Luangwa River. While the design and construction is stylish and done to high standards it has not lost the feeling of being at one with it’s natural surroundings. Views over the Luangwa river are breathtaking.

Sandy paths wind amongst the trees’ from each tent back to the main guest area which is split into two levels. The upper level of this area is a very comfortable place to sit and relax complete with a large communal dining table. A wooden bar is set to one side for pre-dinner drinks and sharing they days safari stories. A guest toilet at the main area is open and has stunning views over the river.


Tena Tena has six spacious¬†tents, each has it’s own very private and shaded location in the camp. A small veranda at the front of each tent has comfortable seating and fantastic views. The river is obviously very popular with the local wildlife so one seldom has to leave camp for excellent game viewing.

The front of each tent rolls up providing really good views from the main bed. A honeymoon tent is somewhat larger with an expanded seating area and a couch outside. This tent is also slightly further away from the rest for additional privacy.

Each tent has a king-size bed with solar-powered reading lamps.Ceiling fans create a cooling breeze for the warmer months and if that’s not enough then a kikois (a thin cotton wrap) soaked in water can be wrapped around you. Through a flap in one side of each tent is an open-air bathroom, with toilet, double basins and hot-and-cold shower.

Children are welcome over 12 years and if you are traveling as a family with children under 16, the second child stays free.
