Mpala Jena means “white impala”, a mythical animal once seen in the Zambezi National Park. It is also the name of the springs that attract so many wild animals year-round to the edges of the camp’s four tents. Under the light shade of tall trees, Mpala Jena Camp sits languidly in a Moroccan-inspired setting. Featuring recycled wood and canvas as well as solar electricity, its presence on the banks of the river is meant to be as light and discreet as possible. A paradise for experienced or amateur birdwatchers, it also offers the pleasures of safari, plunge pools with views of the rapids and adventures to Victoria Falls, a mere twenty kilometres away.
