Mchenja Details 


Mchenja, meaning "ebony", occupies a stunning setting beneath a magnificent grove of ebony trees on the banks of the Luangwa River. Mchenja is a luxurious, elegant and stylish tented camp overlooking a huge sweeping bend in the Luangwa, Zambia. Each of the five specially designed octagonal tents has their own private en-suite open air bathroom plus Victorian style baths with river view. The beautiful central chitenje (lounge) is built around one of the old fallen Mchenja (ebony) trees and guests can cool off there in the camp’s plunge pool. Brunch is taken in the shady lounge but dinner is more often served on the river bank under the stars.
Guests staying at Mchenja can choose whether they want to view their wildlife on foot or from an open gameviewing vehicle.
In addition to the ebony grove at camp there are two other stunning groves close by, as is the case with Kakuli, the gameviewing in this area is superb and night drives are usually very worthwhile.
Mchenja is the perfect destination to complete a walking or driving safari that has combined stays at a number of our bush camps. Alternatively, those guests seeking a little more comfort and pampering may choose to combine a longer stay here, with a number of nights at Chinzombo, our new ultra luxury bush camp on the banks of the Luangwa River.
John Kasonga is the guide/manager at Mchenja and his encyclopaedic knowledge of the plants, animals and small things of the Luangwa will make your safari one to remember.
