Set in a lovely grove of ebony trees and overlooking the Luangwa River, Mchenja Camp is an elegant and comfortable oasis in the game rich South Luangwa National Park.
Accommodations at the camp consist of five luxury chalets including one family villa. Each chalet is custom-made from grass and canvas and is stylishly decorated to blend in with the natural beauty of its setting. Each bedroom comes with either two twin beds or one double and a deep soaking bathtub right in the room with views to the beautiful wilderness outside. The family villa comprises two bedrooms and two bathrooms and can house up to two adults and three kids. Every chalet enjoys its own private deck, perfect for sipping a morning coffee while taking in the wonders of nature.
The camp overlooks the Luangwa River in South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven. The Muchinga Escarpment forms the park’s western and northwestern boundaries, sloping steeply down to the river from the west side. The river valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, forms a natural barrier, and to this day there are no man-made roads spanning the valley. The Park enjoys a dense animal population including Impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes, and buffaloes grazing on the plains. A high number of leopards stalk the dense woodlands, while herds of elephant wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River.
