Musango Safari Camp

Musango Safari Camp, the only owner-run safari camp on the lake, is situated on its own island just off the shoreline of the Matusadona National Park.  

This private island on the shores of the park is accessible by boat, road and air, situated near the mouth of the famous Ume River.

It has its own private wildlife sanctuary on the mainland 3 minutes from the camp by boat.  All game drives are conducted here.

The Musango main area consists of a double storey viewing platform where guests can relax and view both the rising and setting sun.  There are areas to relax both upstairs and downstairs.  The ground level provides a shaded lounge area, with adjoining bar and dining room.  The accommodation at Musango consists of six, twin, luxurious safari tents, each with an en-suite bathroom built of natural stone. These tented rooms are set in thick forest and face east over the lake, towards the rising sun.  Musango also boasts two honeymoon suites that have been uniquely designed and built of natural stone, under thatch. Special canvas interiors ensure total privacy. There is a private verandah and secluded, intimate plunge pool to cool off during the hot, summer months.

Offering an abundance of wildlife from buffalo and elephant to the rare black rhino, Musango Safari Camp is also an ornithologist’s paradise with the immediate area boasting over 400 species of birds.

Musango boasts the largest selection of activities on Lake Kariba; in addition we offer moonlit dinners on a floating pontoon, very romantic for that special occasion.

The swimming pool area and the bar/lounge platform offer an excellent place in which to relax, sunbathe, read a book or view game whilst not out on one of the many activities.
