  • Chikwenya is a luxury lodge on the banks of the Lower Zambezi in Zimbabwe.  It is situated at the confluence of the Sapi River and the Zambezi River, on the eastern border of the World Heritage Mana Pools National Park. The lodge enjoys an exclusive 5500 acre lease of pristine lower Zambezi Flood plain and some 5km of river frontage.  There are 10 private lodges at Chikwenya.  Each lodge has its own private bathroom, dressing room, outside shower and colonial bath.  Each has both air conditioning and overhead fans.  The lodges are all thatched, with the front half being solely teak windows and doors and the back section built out of the eco friendly hydro from bricks.

    ACCESS

    Chikwenya Safari Lodge can be accessed by road and air into Chikwenya airstrip

    BY ROAD :-  You can get to Chikwenya by road in the dry months;  four wheel drive vehicles are recommended.  From Harare, it is a distance of 430km but guests should expect a 6 - 7 hour drive due to the speed limit in Mana Pools National Park.

    BY ROAD :-  Air access is to the private airstrip located in the lease area some 3km south of the lodge. The airstrip is semi-all weather and is capable of handling most if not all turbo-prop and piston driven aircraft.
