Luxury Tent

Mchenja Camp only has five spacious and luxurious rooms, set under a thatched roof.

Each has been designed with style and comfort in mind and provides guests with their very own open-air, en suite bathroom with bath and outside shower on a deck that looks out over the river and surrounding South Luangwa landscape.


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.


Mchenja Camp prepares early pre-excursion breakfasts and will have a delicious hunger-busting brunch waiting for you upon your return.

Lunches and dinners can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors and a variety of drinks are available from the bar.
