Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

There are two very distinct seasons at the Victoria Falls, the wet/flood season and the dry season. These seasons do not reflect the quantity of rain, rather reflect the volume of flow of the Zambezi River. From around March through to July the river surges in size as the rainfall in Angola and Zambia from months before swells the current. The falls are at their most dramatic at this time of year with huge columns of spray. The nights are cold and the days warm at this time of year. From around September to January the water levels drop, the falls are more accessible and views are clearer as the flow can drop in volume by 90%. It is worth noting that the rains come from late October through to February, this combined with high heat, 40 Celsius or more, in October and November, causes high levels of humidity.

Description

A luxurious and intimate property, Mpala Jenna Camp - meaning ‘White Impala’ is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, within a private concession of the Zambezi National Park.

A recent addition to the Great Plains portfolio, this stunning hideaway offers panoramic views over the flowing river and surrounding bush.

Billowing canvas and graceful fabrics hint of a Moroccan influence which echoes throughout the camp. The main guest areas, perched upon hardwood decks are elegantly designed and open sided enabling guests to be fully immersed within the surrounding environments.

Visit the majestic Victoria Falls by boat and watch the sunset while enjoying a cool glass of wine during a Zambezi River safari. Discover the area on twice daily game drives and walking safari within the Zambezi National Park -  led by Great Plains world renowned guides. Expect to see pods of hippo, herds of elephant and buffalo.

Nestled between the branches of indigenous Kigelia Africana (sausage tree), the four luxurious canvas tents are elegant in style. There is a small sitting area leading out onto a large deck. The deck offers uncompromised views of the flowing river and is made complete with a generously sized plunge pool. Spacious ensuite bathrooms feature a bath and open-air shower.
