The camp is situated on a private concession, offering guests exclusive access to the lower reaches and mouth of the Sapi River as well as Chikwenya Island. The varied habitat, from verdant riverine forest to floodplain grasslands, attracts a range of wildlife in considerable numbers. Key mammals seen include buffalo, elephant, kudu, zebra, waterbuck, hippo, lion, wild dog, leopard and occasionally nyala, while species such as black-throated wattle-eye, red-necked falcon, eastern nicator, Narina trogon and Livingstone flycatcher make this a birder’s paradise.

From our arrival until departure we received personalised friendly service. The tented units on wooden decks are the largest and best appointed ones we have stayed in. The chef produced top class meals and the setting was varied constantly. Our guide Foster went out of his way

Dear Peter, Thank you for your fabulous review, we are delighted to see how much you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you had a successful fishing adventure with Foster. Situated on the eastern boundary of Mana Pools National Park, Chikwenya is a photographer’s paradise as it looks out over an open floodplain and the broad Zambezi River, with a backdrop provided by the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment. Bush regards Wilderness Safaris

we were right on the river, the tents were more like cabins with all the amenities, there is nothing like looking out over the camp while elephants quietly walked all around. The staff were totally professional. Did two other camps after but this one was my favorite by far

Dear Sean, Situated on the eastern boundary of Mana Pools National Park, Chikwenya is a photographer’s paradise as it looks out over an open floodplain and the broad Zambezi River, with a backdrop provided by the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment.The camp is surrounded by a dense forest of albida and Natal mahogany trees, which provide deep shade in the heat of the day. The albidas shed their protein-rich pods during the dry season, providing vital sustenance for many species, particularly elephant. Bush regards Wilderness Safaris

Dear AntonK156, Thank you for your amazing review and WOW what wonderful photos you took - especially on the walking safari. The camp is surrounded by a dense forest of albida and Natal mahogany trees, which provide deep shade in the heat of the day. The albidas shed their protein-rich pods during the dry season, providing vital sustenance for many species, particularly elephant. We hope to welcome you back soon. Bush regards Wilderness Safaris
