Mpala Jena (Zambezi National Park)

Mpala Jena is a boutique safari camp positioned along the beautiful tree-laden banks of the Zambezi River. The camp epitomises ‘barefoot luxury’ with playfully scalloped thatched roofs, soft sand floors and a beach bar overlooking the pool and river. Imagine yourself unwinding in opulent canvas tents adorned with wooden decking and stonework. 

Mpala Jena offers a range of activities to ignite your spirit of adventure, from exhilarating game drives to tranquil boat cruises on the mighty Zambezi River and guided nature walks to uncover the park's secrets. Explore the diverse landscapes and rich wildlife of the 56,000-hectare Zambezi National Park on an expertly- led game drive or glide along the tranquil waters of the Zambezi River on a scenic boat cruise, spotting a variety of wildlife and enjoying the breathtaking scenery. 

Mpala Jena was created with a strong sustainability ethos and runs entirely off our solar plant and battery. Building materials and design elements were specified and sourced with a clear vision of minimising embodied energy and transportation miles. So why not take an informative guided walk, to learn about the park's unique flora and fauna and uncover hidden gems.
