A Remote Victoria Falls Experience
Named after the stream that runs through camp – itself named for a legendary ‘white impala’ antelope – Mpala Jena has taken care to leave a light footprint on this pristine environment. Constructed from recycled hardwoods and sturdy canvas, the camp runs on solar power and offers simple high-quality dishes and a well-stocked wine cellar. Morning and afternoon game drives (or boat safaris) with professional guides take you in search of the heavyweight species like elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lions and spotted hyenas.
Open year round and recommended for travellers looking to visit Victoria Falls within a genuine safari environment, Mpala Jena welcomes families with children aged six and over. It also takes care to provide for couples and honeymooners as well as groups of friends travelling together: not only is each of its five suites very private and complete with its own lounge and sun deck but the camp offers two 2-bedroom luxury family suites too.
Located within the 56,000-hectare Zambezi National Park, the camp is home to an ever-increasing number of wildlife that can be enjoyed on game drives, boat cruises, walking trails or even while sipping cocktails from the camp’s swing chairs. Higher concentrations of buffalo and elephants are typical from June to October. There are more lions per km² here than in any other park in Zimbabwe.
