About

About Mpala Jena

Mpala Jena is a beautiful, exclusive canvas tented camp, located on a private concession in the Zambezi National Park. The camp overlooks a stunning stretch of the Zambezi River shoreline. The camp is named after the natural spring-line, Mpala Jena, which runs through the centre of the concession and attracts an abundance of wildlife throughout the year. The area is particularly famous for buffalo and elephant sightings as well as having fantastic birdlife.

Mpala Jena is an environmentally innovative camp, constructed only of recycled hardwoods, canvas and powered by its solar farm. The four guest tents have fabulous views of the river and the interiors are Moroccan in style. Each tent has a lounge and en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower. The decking in front of each tent leads to a private plunge pool.

Location

Mpala Jena Camp is located on the banks of the Zambezi River and 16 kilometers inside the Zambezi National Park. Victoria Falls Town is easily accessible but the camp is well away from the hustle and bustle of the town, allowing guests to relax and unwind amidst this incredible setting and wild habitat of the Zambezi National Park.

How to get there

From Victoria Falls International Airport it's a 1 hour 20 minutes drive to the camp, conducted as a safari drive. It's also possible to do a road and boat transfer, for the more adventurous (1 hour 20 minutes).

It's a 2 hour drive or 1 hour 40 minutes road and boat transfer from Livingstone airport.

When to go

With mild temperatures, virtually no rain and a low malaria risk, the dry May to October winter season is generally seen as the best time to visit Zimbabwe for game-viewing, September and October being the extremely hot and dry months.

The best time to travel to Victoria Falls is at the end of the summer rainy season when the falls are in full flood - April and May offer the most dramatic views. However, it is the August to December low water season that is regarded as the best time to go white-water rafting at Victoria Falls - the volume and speed of the water are reduced and the rapids are more exposed.

Important Information

It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel.
