Set in a grove of magnificent ebony trees Mchenja (meaning ebony) is a luxurious, elegant and stylish tented camp overlooking a huge sweeping bend in the Luangwa. Mchenja has been described as one of the most luxurious and romantic bush camps in Zambia. Five specially designed octagonal tents with roll-top baths and outdoor showers string along the Luangwa River affording spectacular views from all rooms. The beautiful central chitenje (lounge) is built around one of the old fallen Mchenja (ebony) trees and lunch is taken in the shady lounge but dinner is more often served on the river bank under the stars.
Elephants are known to drink from the plunge pool in the main area and lions and leopard are frequently seen wandering around the nearby ebony grove and permanent lagoon. Mchenja is situated in a superb game-viewing area where walking safaris, game drives and night drives are always productive and exciting.
