Time + Tide Mchenja Bush Camp

Flanked by a grove of towering ebony trees on one side and the Luangwa River on the other, Time + Tide Mchenja Camp offers luxury in the heart of the national park. Overlooking a wide river expanse, the camp is wonderful for watching large herds of elephants crossing the Luangwa. The suites bring style and comfort to an authentic safari experience. Between game drives unwind in your clawfoot tub, watching the river meandering past through the floor to ceiling windows. From the comfort of your villa, listen to the bellowing hippos or watch as elephants feed on seed pods just outside your tent. Come, experience this wild land for yourself.

Venture into one of the most game rich areas of the national park with our award winning guiding team on game drives and walking safaris. The South Luangwa is renowned for its world class predator action, with especially strong sightings of the elusive leopard. In the South Luangwa, expect large herds of elephants and rivers packed with hippos and crocs. Diverse habitat supports a wide variety of plains game and birdlife alongside the predators attracted to the abundance. 




Remote but luxurious, amazing game-viewing, wide views over the Luanwga River, dining in the shade of the ebony trees or under the stars
