Mpala Jena

Mpala Jena is an exclusive, intimate camp located in the Zambezi National Park, in the Victoria Falls area.

Mpala Jena offers a high end, laidback and stylish camp experience, in a national park setting, but still within easy reach (around 16 kilometres) of Victoria Falls. With only five suites, the camp is very intimate and while it has a natural, barefoot luxury design, the accommodation is very smart with spacious tented suites built on to wooden decks, looking over the Zambezi River. The camp is built on the white shores of the Zambezi River and has distinct beach feel to it. The main bar and pool area are on the sand making it an ideal place to relax at the beginning or end of a holiday.


Accommodation is provided for up to 14 guests in five luxurious tented suites (two of which are two bedroom family suites) shaded by giant trees and all with views over the Zambezi river…
