Chikwenya Camp

Situated on the eastern boundary of Mana Pools National Park, Chikwenya is a photographer’s paradise as it looks out over an open floodplain and the broad Zambezi River, with a backdrop provided by the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment.

The camp is surrounded by a dense forest of albida and Natal mahogany trees, which provide deep shade in the heat of the day. The albidas shed their protein-rich pods during the dry season, providing vital sustenance for many species, particularly elephant.

Chikwenya’s seven tents (including two family units) stand on low wooden decks with pine walkways linking them to the raised main area. The lounge, dining and bar area are places of hospitality and relaxation, and a pool and deck offer alternate spaces to enjoy the scenery and passing wildlife.

NOTE: Chikwenya is open seasonally between April and mid/late November.

Game Drives
Day and night game drives provide exclusive access to a spectacular stretch of the Zambezi River, its typical Mana Pools woodlands, the Sapi River and fertile floodplains.

It’s all about experiencing Africa on foot: along the Zambezi River, amongst the riverine vegetation and under the shady trees.

For the adventurous, canoeing down one of Africa’s mightiest rivers is a must.

Boating is a wonderful way of seeing large numbers of water birds and wildlife attracted to the river and seasonal pans.
