Mchenja Camp – South Luangwa Nat. Park

  • Gorgeous riverside setting in a lush ebony grove
  • Luxury meets adventure
  • Pool overlooking the river

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. Our 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! 

Explore the region’s diverse habitats with our 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, our other wildly luxurious camp on the banks of the Luangwa River.

Best Time to Visit Zambia

 The recognised best times to visit Zambia for the best game viewing along with pleasantly mild daytime temperatures is during the dry season, May to October although September and October can be exceptionally hot. It is during the dry season when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. During the wet season (November to April) some roads in the parks can be inaccessible resulting in some camps being closed. The scenery in Zambia is always spectacular throughout the year.
