Mpala Jena Suite

An intimate, traditional space where hearts and spirits find inspiration in a history rich with extraordinary wildlife stories…



Mpala Jena Suite is an exquisite, exclusive, two-bedroom tented villa in a private concession within Zambezi National Park overlooking the Zambezi River and in the shade of a mixture of indigenous trees.

The camp is named for the spring-line that runs through the concession and attracts an abundance of wildlife. Mpala Jena means “white impala,” so called, according to local rangers, because of an albino impala seen in the area when Zambezi National Park was first established. Today the Park has a healthy population of wildlife including buffalo, elephant and lion and offers excellent bird-watching.

The Suite is set on raised decking under flowing canvas with views of the river and Moroccan influences throughout the decor. The Suite sleeps 4 adults sharing, or a party of 5 if there are children travelling. The two spacious bedrooms sit either side of a central lounge and dining area. Decking in front of the tent leads to a private plunge pool and campfire area with views of the river. The Mpala Jena Suite is one of the most environmentally innovative camps in Zambezi National Park; achieved through the use of recycled hardwoods and canvas and ensuring all the camp’s electricity needs come from solar power.

The property is conveniently located 16 kilometres inside the Zambezi National Park offering easy access to Victoria Falls town, but far from the hustle and bustle, allowing guests to remain immersed in their safari-experience and relax in the incredible setting and wild habitat of the Park.
