Pin It

Tena Tena, lies on a high bank on the edge of the Luangwa river. The river splits leaving a main channel or island and then a smaller channel where Tena Tena sits offering views up and down the river with added bonus of game viewing from the camp onto the island itself.

The tented rooms face away from the river leaving the communal areas and a stretch of river bank with the best views. The camp is very spacious creating privacy for each room and more than enough space for guests to relax in their own area of the camp, away from their rooms.

The bar and lounge area are the main focus of the camp, set back slightly from the river bank to allow for sofas and chairs to be spread under the trees right on the edge of the bank.

The rooms are classic safari tents underneath a thatched roof. All have lounging areas in front of each room and sides that open up to reveal the views. Outside bathrooms are all en suite and built to surround the trees on camp.
