Away from the more crowded Mfuwe gate

A real bush camp experience without sacrificing comfort or luxury

Mchenja Camp is located in the northern region of South Luangwa National Park, surrounded by a grove of ebony trees, beside a bend in the Luangwa River. It is a short walk from the sister camp, Kakuli, and is in an area full of wildlife.

Mchenja is a small camp with only five luxurious, tented chalets. The tents are octagonal, so they can be light, airy and spacious with wide canvas windows allowing the breeze through. Each chalet has an indoor bath and en-suite, open-air shower room with a flushing toilet and sink. The main lounge and bar area is cleverly designed with a tree leaning right over the dining area. The lounge has comfy chairs and sofas as well as a small library. The bar is well stocked and the food excellent. There is a deck with a seating area and a small shaded plunge pool.

Activities at Mchenja revolve around game viewing and which can be done either on foot with a walking safari, or in a vehicle. The game viewing in this area is superb and night drives provide a very memorable spectacle.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
