Property Details

Mchenja, meaning “the ebony tree”, is set beneath a magnificent grove of these trees on the banks of the serene Luangwa River. Five stylish and spacious octagonal tents under thatched roofs feature elegant furnishings and private en-suite open air bathrooms with Victorian style bathtubs and sweeping river views. At the heart of Mchenja Bush Camp is a beautiful central “chitenje” lounge built around one of the old fallen ebony trees. It is here where guests can cool off in the camp’s plunge pool and dine on delectable fare in the lounge. From riverside dinners under the stars and views extending for miles around, Mchenja Bush Camp is dedicated to providing guests the utmost comfort amid the untouched wilderness of South Luangwa National Park.

One of four elegant bush camps in Zambia, Mchenja Bush Camp perpetuates the Norman Carr legacy in its personalized luxury and back-to-bush adventure. Norman Carr was the founder of the walking safari, and it was his dream to bring authentic African experiences to guests. His vision is exactly what Mchenja Bush Camp accomplishes in its execution. Intimacy, privacy, and complete solitude are the defining pillars of Mchenja, as well as an extremely unhurried South Luangwa National Park safari experience void of the throngs of tourists and game vehicles found in other African destinations.

Although Mchenja Bush Camp takes luxury in the bush to a level not previously seen in Zambia, it is also perfectly designed to combine with other more rustic bushcamps for a quintessential Zambian walking safari experience. Mchenja is the perfect destination to complete a walking safari that has combined stays at a number of alternative Norman Carr safari camps. For more information, contact a Ker & Downey travel expert to discuss how to maximize your own walking safari experience in Zambia with Mchenja Bush Camp.
