THE ULTIMATE CAMP OUT EXPERIENCE
We offer flexible safaris between three fly camps in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park.
Tafara Springs is located in the Rufunsa Valley at the foot of the escarpment. Kutali Island and Buffalo Island are tucked away on remote Islands in the prime game viewing area near Jeki airfield.
Game drives and fishing are readily available and completely flexible although we concentrate primarily on walking safaris and canoe safaris. The camps are simple with old style luxury camping, under the stars and around the campfire. We recommend a minimum 4-night stay with us. We base our main camp (basecamp) at one of our three sites and guests will do one or two nights fly camping in the middle of their stay.
* PLEASE NOTE IN 2018 SEASON WE WILL ONLY BE OPERATING BUFFALO ISLAND & KUtali ISLAND*
