As with nearby Kakuli Bush Camp, we have always been massive fans of this camp. Mchenja is extremely popular with all ages and all levels of safari experience. Due to its high level of luxury, we think that Mchenja Bush Camp makes a great end to a Luangwa safari.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Mchenja Bush Camp is located in the northern sectors of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. It is one of the most luxurious camps in the Valley.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Sitting under an ancient ebony grove just off Luangwa River itself, Mchenja has five high-specification octagonal tents, each with its own ensuite open-air bathroom complete with a roll-top bath. The camp even has its own plunge pool – certainly not your average Luangwa bush camp!
Activities at Mchenja include day and night-time game drives, as well as some very good walking safaris. The levels of guiding and service are some of the highest standards in the entire valley. Whereas the majority of camps close in the wet season, Mchenja is one of the only Luangwa bush camps that remain open throughout the year.
