Mchenja Bush Camp occupies a stunning setting beneath a magnificent grove of these trees on the banks of the Luangwa River. It is just a short morning's walk upstream from Kakuli Bush Camp and is in an area teaming with wildlife.

Although Mchenja Bush Camp takes luxury in the bush to a level not previously seen in Zambia, it is a bush camp designed to combine excellently with our other more rustic locations.

Guests staying at Mchenja can choose whether they want to view their wildlife on foot or from an open gameviewing vehicle. As is the case with Kakuli Bush Camp, the gameviewing in this area of the South Luangwa is superb and night drives are usually very worthwhile.

In addition to the ebony grove at camp there are two other stunning groves close by meaning that this most magnificent of trees plays a big part in your Zambia safari experience whilst at Mchenja Bush Camp.

Mchenja Bush Camp comprises four stylishly designed tents each under its own thatched roof and with a deck in front overlooking the Luangwa river. The tents have inside baths with an outside shower room.

There is a small pool alongside the bar within the thatched main chitenje, allowing guests to seek cool refuge after their morning's safari activities.

All meals, comprising breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea and dinner, are included. Most meals are served buffet-style, but for dinner you will generally be seated with the persons who have accompanied you on your safari that day, plus your guide, giving you the opportunity to discuss your experiences of the day together. However, other arrangements can certainly be accommodated. Dinner consists of a three-course meal, freshly prepared, cooked in camp and served to you at your table.
