The beautiful and newly established Mpala Jena Camp overlooks a stunning stretch of the Zambezi River, close enough to Victoria Falls to be easily accessible – yet far enough to ensure peace and tranquillity in a beautiful private concession within the Zambezi National Park. 

Completely rebuilt opening in 2019 on the spot of a previous camp, in the luxurious typical (and beautiful) style of the owners, Great Plains Conservation (the co-founders being the famous National Geographic filmmakers, conservationists and explorers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert) evoking the classic ‘campaign’ style of African Safari in the 1920’s with Moroccan touches.

Mpala Jena Camp has been built for luxury and comfort yet sustainably. Each of the four guest tents are under beige, flowing canvas, with open (yet netted) views of the river frontage. Each tent has a small lounge / seated area with a desk and en-suite bathroom facilities. Decking in front of the tent leads to a private plunge pool with gorgeous views of the Zambezi River.

Mpala Jena Camp offers professionally guided wildlife viewing open vehicle drives, walks, morning or afternoon boat cruises and / or canoeing (water level dependant / seasonally) throughout the day. The reserve has a healthy population of wildlife including buffalo, elephant and lion and offers excellent bird-watching, particularly between November and April. Also available are catch-and-release fishing, cultural tours, helicopter rides, scenic helicopter flights and scenic flights. But the star of the show is the stunning and famous Victoria Falls – one of the seven wonders of the world!
