    General Facilities

    Mchenja Camp provides guests with a comfortable and intimate environment in which to relax and experience Africa’s landscape and wildlife – and with only five tents available, no wonder the camp is popular with honeymooners.

    You could chat about the excitement of your game drive or walking safari while relaxing in the lounge, or spend quiet moments reading in the small library nook. Indulge in scrumptuous meals outdoors or indoors, grab a drink from the bar and take a refreshing dip in the plunge pool while listening to the calls of birds and hippos in the river nearby.
