During February and March (the wet season), it can only be reached by boat. It is closed from November to January and during April. Mchenja is one of the best equipped lodges in South Luangwa and ensures a private and intimate stay. Stay cool in the sparkling swimming pool during the day and in the shade under the thatched lodge. The bar provides ice-cool drinks all day long, so you can spot game with a cocktail close by at all times. Visitors embark on their first safari in this unbelievable wilderness in the late afternoon.
The next two days of your Five Star South Luangwa Safari are dedicated to walking safaris and game drives in the area surrounding Mchenja. The South Luangwa National Park is the most popular of the three and has year-round access. It is one of Africa’s ecologically unspoilt wilderness areas. The national park is 9,050 square km in size and home to over 420 species of birds and over 60 species of mammals. The park is renowned for its high population of leopards which are commonly seen on night drives, large herds of elephant as well as great numbers of hippo and crocodile in the river.
