VICTORIA FALLS

Mpala Jena Camp

Mpala Jena Camp is an exquisite and exclusive canvas tented camp, located on a private concession within the Zambezi National Park. Overlooking a beautiful stretch of the Zambezi River shoreline, the four guest tents have been elegantly positioned under the dappled shade of a mixture of indigenous trees including Kigelia Africana (sausage tree), Lonchocarpus capassa (rain tree) and Syzygium cordatum (water berry tree). The camp is named after the natural spring-line, Mpala Jena, which runs through the centre of the concession, and which attracts an abundance of wildlife throughout the year, particularly during the drier months.

’Mpala Jena’ means “White Impala” and according to the local National Park rangers, at the time when the Zambezi National Park was separated from the Victoria Falls National Park and declared a National Park in its own right in 1979, there had been regular sightings of a “ghost-like” albino impala along the river in this area.

The Zambezi National Park has a healthy and ever increasing number of wildlife species, with higher concentrations of buffalo and elephant during the months June through to October. This area is particularly good for bird watching throughout the year, but with a higher diversity of species during the months November through to April.

Mpala Jena Camp has been created to be the most environmentally innovative camp within the Zambezi National Park. This is achieved through the use of only recycled hardwoods and canvas in its construction and ensuring all the camp’s electricity needs come from its solar farm.

The four guest tents are under beige, flowing canvas, with canopy ceilings and open (yet netted) views of the river frontage, with Moroccan style influences throughout the decor. Each tent has a small lounge / seated area with a desk, and en-suite bathroom facilities which include an impressive bathtub, indoor shower, separate loo and double basins. Decking in front of the tent leads to a private plunge pool with views of the calming and peaceful flowing waters of the Zambezi River.

The property is conveniently located 16 kilometres inside the Zambezi National Park which makes for easy access to Victoria Falls town, but is far enough away from the hustle and bustle, allowing guests to relax and unwind whilst enjoying an incredible setting amidst the wild habitat of the Zambezi National Park.

Victoria falls Hotel

The Victoria Falls Hotel, popularly known as “the grand old lady of the Falls”, is situated in the Victoria Falls National Park, a world heritage site, and is a member of the exclusive Leading Hotels of the World group. It is one of only three IS0-accredited hotels in Zimbabwe.

The Edwardian-style five-star hotel, built in 1904, combines the charm of the old with the convenience of the new. Set in lush tropical gardens with lily ponds, palm trees and semi-tropical shrubs, it provides the tranquillity and seclusion that many guests seek. The famous Victoria Falls are just a ten-minute walk away using the hotel’s private pathway, and “the smoke that thunders” or “Mosi-O-Tunya” in the local dialect, is clearly audible and visible from this luxurious landmark.

World-class service, and food and beverage choice and preparation second to none, make the hotel a magnet for international visitors and locals alike. The opulent Livingstone Room for fine dining and dancing, the Jungle Junction with its famous breakfast and dinner buffets and ethnic entertainment in the evenings, offer variety and wide choice. Stanley’s Terrace, with its clear view of the Victoria Falls Bridge, connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia, is renowned for its cocktails and afternoon teas. The Terrace has been a rendezvous for adventurers in Africa for over a century.

The ambience of the hotel is steeped in that history with all suites decorated in the gracious Edwardian style of Zimbabwe’s colonial era. Small executive meetings and private dining facilities are easily arranged for those who wish to combine a little business with a lot of pleasure, and all in a secluded and discreet environment.

MANA POOLS NATIONAL PARK

Ruckomechi Camp

On the middle reaches of the Zambezi River, a hundred kilometres below Lake Kariba is the Mana Pools National Park situated in the heart of the Zambezi Valley. Ruckomechi Camp lies on the banks of the Zambezi, shaded by a large grove of acacia and mahogany trees and with a superb view of the mountains of Africa’s Great Rift Valley across the river in Zambia.

Ruckomechi Camp accommodates guests in ten spacious en-suite tented units, including a honeymoon suite, all of which overlook the Zambezi River. Each tent has both indoor and outdoor showers, and the camp boasts a favourite amongst guests: its outdoor ‘bath-with-a-view’ in a secluded, scenic spot. The central dining, bar, library and lounge areas face the escarpment and are connected to the rest of the camp by low-level walkways that minimise our environmental impact. There is a separate deck with infinity pool for swimming and sun bathing, and an inviting, cushion-strewn star gazing deck.

Following on from our Zambian camps, Ruckomechi Camp has aimed to be as environmentally friendly as possible – hot water and lighting for each unit is provided by solar power.

The camp vegetation is dominated by broad canopied albida trees, much loved by elephants for their rich nutritious pods; these animals often join visitors in camp for a light meal!

The area is renowned for large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo and eland, especially in the winter when they concentrate along the river. Predators such as lion, leopard and wild dog are all found in the area. Birdlife is superb, particularly for both mopane woodland and riverine species with numerous local specials like Collared Palm-Thrush, Racket-tailed Roller, Purple-banded Sunbird and Black-throated Wattle-Eyes.

Activities at Ruckomechi Camp include wildlife viewing in open 4×4 vehicles, on motorised pontoon boats, on foot and in canoes.

HWANGE NATIONAL PARK

Linkwasha lodge

The camp is an eclectic mix of contemporary interiors and Ndebele culture, its nine luxurious tents (eight twin and one family) overlooking the scenic plain. The main area includes various multi-level decks, amongst them, a cosy library complete with fireplace and shaded salas surrounding an inviting pool. Our nearby romantic Star Bed looks onto a productive waterhole.

Alongside our non-profit partner, Children in the Wilderness, we work closely with the surrounding communities and schools, ensuring they benefit from conservation and sustainable ecotourism. Guests can enjoy a local village visit which often includes a guided tour of the school, meeting the headman or participating in community projects.
