Flanked by a grove of towering ebony trees on one side and the Luangwa River on the other, Mchenja Camp offers luxury in the heart of the national park. Overlooking a wide river expanse, Mchenja is wonderful for watching large herds of elephants crossing the Luangwa.

The suites bring style, comfort and luxury to an authentic safari experience. Each suite features soft beds, large picture windows and a clawfoot bath looking out onto the river. the two-bedroom, two-bathroom family suite is the perfect retreat for friends and families traveling together. A refreshing pool is ideal for relaxing between safari activities – just be ready to share with the thirsty elephants! This

Explore the region’s diverse habitats with the award-winning guiding team. The game viewing in this area is superb, with leopards and lions sometimes wandering through the ebony grove in search of prey. Night drives are usually very rewarding, with the bush revealing a different nocturnal surprise every time.

For those seeking a little more comfort and pampering, combine a longer stay here with a stay at Chinzombo, the other wildly luxurious camp on the banks of the Luangwa River.
