PROPERTY HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Mpala Jena Camp is an exquisite tented camp, located in a private concession within Zambezi National Park overlooking a beautiful stretch of Zambezi River and in the shade of indigenous trees.
  • The camp is named for the spring-line that runs through the concession and attracts an abundance of wildlife. Mpala Jena means “white impala” named, according to local National Park rangers, after an albino impala seen in the area in 1979 when the Zambezi National Park was created and separated from Victoria Falls National Park. Today Zambezi National Park has a healthy population of wildlife including buffalo, elephant and lion and offers excellent bird-watching, particularly between November and April.
  • The camp’s four guest tents are under flowing canvas, with open views of the river and Moroccan influences throughout the decor. Decking in front of the tent leads to a private plunge pool with views of the flowing waters of the Zambezi River.
  • The property is conveniently located 16 kilometres inside the Zambezi National Park offering easy access to Victoria Falls town, but distance from the hustle and bustle, allowing guests to remain immersed in a safari-atmosphere and relax in the incredible setting and wild habitat of the Park.
  • Early morning and late afternoon game viewing in a private open 4×4 vehicle, guided walks, one return road transfer to Victoria Falls town, one entrance ticket to see the Victoria Falls per guest’s stay on a self guided basis and boat-based activities on the Zambezi River water levels permitting. Complimentary return road, or road and boat, transfers from Victoria Falls International Airport included in the nightly rate.
