Overlooking a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River Mchenja is Norman Carr’s most luxurious bush camp.The central area is stunning, designed from a fallen ebony tree and focused around a large plunge pool, looking over the Luangwa. Massive ebony tree’s (Mchenja) surround the camp, offering respites from the sun and spacious areas where each of the octagonal tents enjoys total privacy.

The rooms themselves are incredibly luxurious, with free standings baths, outdoor en suite bathrooms and a beautiful design. Each leads onto a manicured lawn that stretches for 20 yards before dropping off into the Luangwa. The setting is stunning and the camp is incredibly spacious offering guests the chance to stroll around camp or simply sit under the shade of an ebony tree, right on the banks of the Luangwa.
