Elephant Outside Lodge Chikwenya Mana Pools
Chikwenya was originally established over twenty years ago by Jeff Stutchbury, one of the great pioneer guides and still occupies the same beautiful sight with nine spacious thatched cottages set among trees.

The lodge is set on the edge of the spectacularly beautiful World Heritage Site of Mana Pools. The surrounding setting is one of open grassland, shallow Zambezi tributaries and some of the most beautiful woodlands in central Africa which makes an ideal habitat for a rich variety of wildlife.

The “pool” reflects the abundance of watery places in this National Park and you can spend hours overlooking a waterhole, watching animals emerge from the bush, coming down to drink and interact as many birds and species arrive and depart.

The Zambezi River dominates the landscape – almost half a mile wide at this point, and another advantage point is game viewing by boat and canoe with Chikwenya’s expert guides.
You can, if you wish, combine a boating safari with a walk across the floodplains or a drive by an open vehicle when a spotlight is used to search out leopard, porcupine and other nocturnal creatures before returning to camp for a sumptuous four course dinner.

The standard of cuisine here is very good indeed and when you are not out game viewing, you can quietly observe animals and birds from elevated hides, or can relax in the sparkling pool.
