Chikwenya Camp

Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

Property Description

Situated on the eastern boundary of Mana Pools National Park, Chikwenya is a photographer’s paradise as it looks out over an open floodplain and the broad Zambezi River, with a backdrop provided by the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment.

The ten-tented camp (including two family units) is surrounded by a dense forest of albida and Natal mahogany trees, which provide deep shade in the heat of the day. The tents perch on low wooden decks and pine walkways link them to the raised main area. The lounge, dining and bar area are places of hospitality and relaxation, and a pool, deck and fireplace offer alternate spaces to enjoy the scenery and passing wildlife.

As a private-access area neighbouring Mana Pools National Park, Chikwenya joins the park in playing an important role in protecting what is considered to be one of the great wildlife spectacles on the continent and in preserving a feel of real wilderness.

NOTE: Chikwenya is open seasonally between April and mid/late November.

Unique Selling Points:

  • Lies on one of the most beautiful stretches of the lower Zambezi
  • Remote, yet rich in both wildlife and experiences
  • Protein-rich albida pods attract many species, particularly elephant, during the dry season

        "Another brilliant Wilderness Lodge"
        This was not our first trip to Mana Pools. We love it there! The beauty and tranquility is astonishing. The lodge wonderful! Situated just outside of the national park leans itself to a very private affair. If you are in two minds, I can promise you, just chat to Wild & Isle about booking (particularly in dry season when game viewing is at its best). Another added benefit while we were there was the Painted Dog relocation that Wilderness is involved in and we were able to learn more about the plight of this very interesting and social animal.
