Wildlife drives and walks

"Each early morning and late afternoon, when the air is cooler and the wild things rouse and roam across the wilderness, we head out, on foot or in private open-sided 4×4s, to track the signs that lead us to them: the buffalo, elephant and lion, the giraffe, zebra and waterbuck, the fish eagles and baboons. Witnessing the animals and birdlife of the Zambezi National Park up close and in their natural habitat, with expert guides to lead and decipher the way, is an experience that stays with you for life.”

Water safaris

“The river is a creature of its own, teeming with animals you need to share the water with to see – from the lone crocodiles to the great hippo pods. In the lodge’s eight-seater aluminium hulled motor boat, slip along the mighty Zambezi River like one of the river’s own, water levels permitting, whether on a game-viewing boat transfer to and/from Victoria Falls airport, or on a sunrise or sun-downer cruise, stopping for hot coffee or chilled G&Ts along the way.”

Victoria Falls

Hayden Westley

“Nineteen kilometres from the renowned world wonder of Victoria Falls, the camp is an ideal base from which to explore this grand sight, known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, 'The Smoke Which Thunders', a sight which famed explorer, David Livingstone described so beautifully in his diaries – ‘scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight,’ he wrote. During your stay, you have the opportunity to enjoy a day excursion into Victoria Falls town to visit the thunderous waterfall, on a self-guided tour.”

Hayden Westley - Maître de Maison
Great Plains


“Mpala Jena Camp’s philosophy of wellness goes beyond the touch of the wellness concierges. It harnesses the healing power of nature – from the bush spa that opens out onto the wilderness, with the songs of fish eagle and hippo splashing in the water, and an uninterrupted of the riverbank from the massage table, to treatments that speak to all the senses and utilise products that are uniquely African, organic, vegan and sensual. It extends to the wholesome, nutritious and mindful meals made from the freshest ingredients, to promote energy and health, and the yoga mats and stationary bicycle on your private deck, letting you connect to nature while exercising.”

Photographic Safaris

“As National Geographic Explorers, and wildlife photographers and filmmakers, we are lovers of capturing the wild and telling its stories through images and wanted to share that passion with guests. We created Mpala Jena Camp with photography in mind. Each suite has complimentary access to professional cameras as well as binoculars. The camp’s custom-built 4x4 are specially designed for photography and are stocked with reference books and refreshments, so you can take all the time you need out in the bush, whether focusing on kingfishers flapping above the water, preparing for their dive, or on the baobabs and the little creatures of the wild in that transformative golden hour light.”
