Mchenja brings a bit more luxury to the bush, compared with Time + Tides other seasonal camps within South Luangwa National Park. With a unique location the camp sits within a shady ebony forest, where you will often hear the barking of baboons alerting for local resident leopards. The tents are located just meters away from the edge of the meandering Luangwa River, creating a stunning panoramic view from the camp.
The camp is made up of 5 large tents, which include a 2 bedroom family tent. The tents are stylish, made from grass walls with a large open front that will be closed in the evening. All of the tents have a large outdoor bathroom and beautiful free standing baths looking out onto the river. For those hot summer months, Mchenja has a small plunge pool, allowing you to spend your siesta time cooling off or reading your book in the sun.
Its great location makes it one of the best places for leopard spotting, with many guests managing to spot more than one of an evening. Enjoy bushwalks, lead by top of the class guides. Walking trails take you up the meandering river, through ebony forests and even up to vast expanses of open plains.
Mchenja is the perfect camp to stay at in collaboration with Time + Tides other camps within South Luangwa National Park. These include Kakuli, Luwi and Nsolo camps. To end your safari with a little more luxury, the stunning Time + Tide Chinzombo would be the best option here.
Time + Tide also offers the unique experience of a Sleepout, at a small extra cost. Sit by the campfire after dinner and learn from experts about the different night sounds of the bush. Before tucking yourself into bed in a dry riverbed, looking out into the night sky.
