A trip of a lifetime; we were sorry to come home. The accommodation exceeded our expectations, particularly Sussi and Chuma.

Set on the banks of the Luangwa River, Mchenja Camp commands magnificent river views. The camp has five stylishly designed tents under thatch, each with outside shower and indoor bath. A small pool allows you to cool off after a busy morning of safari activities. Game viewing in this part of the park is exceptional and excursions are conducted on foot or by vehicle. Superb night game drives are available and well worth while as you are bound to see many of Luangwa's large pods of hippo - there are estimated to be at least 50 hippos per kilometre of river.
