Mchenja, meaning "ebony", 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 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.

As a luxury bush camp, Mchenja Camp is the perfect destination to complete a walking safari that has combined 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 the main lodge.

Rooms & Suites:

This Luxury Luangwa River Camp comprises five 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.


Guests staying at Mchenja Camp can choose whether they want to view their wildlife on foot or from an open gameviewing vehicle. As is the case with Kakuli, the gameviewing in this area 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 safari experience whilst at Mchenja.
