To preserve and protect Zambia for future generations

We strive to operate all of our camps with a focus on three pillars which we believe constitute sustainable tourism: a sustainable business model, the environment and the local communities. We’re a family run business who love the bush and love what we do. Although we have to remain economically viable, our core focus is the well being of our beautiful ecosystem including the trees and plants that grow in it, the rivers that flow in it and the wildlife and local people, and their rich cultures, that thrive in it. We support a number of initiatives that protect Luangwa’s wilderness and even have our own fund, The Tafika Fund, to support our local communities and run a few extra conservation initiatives.

Natural materials & Solar Power

Our ethos is to use natural materials as much as possible. This means our camps are rebuilt every year, which contributes to creating employment opportunities for the local village. Using natural materials ensures a low impact footprint and ensures that we preserve the natural eco system. As far as possible, we use solar and gas for our source of power.

Local skills & Produce

We strive to employ local Zambians to build our camps and work in them. From thatching our chalets to cooking delicious three course meals for a candlelit dinner. Remote Africa is currently employing 87 people from the local community which helps to support our local economy. Our camp garden also supplements our cuisine with fresh and healthy vegetables.

Our buzzing friends, the bees

The number of home-made beehives started by Christine Coppinger around Tafika Camp, help to boost the bee population and ensures successful pollination in our camp garden. We hope this becomes a long-term project which encourages the Mkasanga village to start their own hives. Pollination is important because it leads to the production of fruits we can eat.
