Tafika Camp is the main lodge run by Carol and John Coppinger. They also run Mwaleshi, Chicoko, and Crocodile Camps, which are more remote. The accomodations are excellent, with small reed-made "chalets', which have flush toilets and hot water. Mosquito netting is provided. There is laundry service. The food is excellent, with fresh garden vegetables grown on the premises. Game drives are provided at Tafika, and walking safaris at the bush camps. John also provides microlight flights over the valley. Hippos serenade you to sleep, and elephants and crocs are visible as you rest in the swing. It is possible to recharge batteries at Tafika. Overall an incredible experience, and a well run organization.
