Tafika & Shamashanga, Zambezi


Tafika and Shamashanga are luxury fishing camps on the Zambezi River in the Sapi Safari Area downstream from Mana Pools. 

Tafika,  situated a short way upstream from the confluence of the Chewore and Zambezi Rivers, accommodates up to 14 guests in 7 luxury brick-under-thatch chalets with twin beds, overhead fans, a stylish en-suite bathroom, and a breathtaking view of the Zambezi River from where you can enjoy the sun setting over the Zambian hills.  There is a central living/dining/bar area 

Shamashanga, a little upstream of Tafika, Shamashanga Camp is a self catering camp which accommodates up to 16 guests in 8 large, luxury East African style tents. The camp is situated near the old G-Camp site in the Sapi Safari Area. Each walk-in tent has twin ¾ beds and a private en suite bathroom with shower.   

In both camps, a main lodge incorporates the dining room, bar, lounge and patio area with an open fire pit and a small plunge pool which provides welcome relief during the heat of the day.
At Tafika, boats and fishing equipment are on offer, with 50 litres of fuel per day included. A team of professional river guides is there to help you find the best fishing or game viewing spots, prepare your fishing equipment and provide refreshments and light meals.  

At Shamashanga, guests can bring their own boats (a maximum of 5), or hire two of the camp's pontoon-type boats with a driver (no equipement provided).  Fuel and extra drinks are available for purchase.
