Musekese Camp is perched on the edge of a spectacular lagoon hidden away from the outside world. The camp has made a name for itself with expert guiding, exceptional food and phenomenal wildlife viewing. Explore this game-rich area by vehicle, foot or boat along the emerald green Kafue River.
With just 5 brand-new guest rooms and a team of experienced guides, activities are taken at your pace and interest. Rooms at Musekese Camp are spacious and comfortable with all the necessities. This includes en- suite flushing toilets and on-demand hot water showers. All our power requirements are drawn from a well configured solar set up and the main area has plenty of surplus power 24/7 to keep all your devices fully charged and drinks ice cold.
The wildlife viewing in and around Musekese is exceptional. Game numbers and the quality of sightings have improved year upon year thanks to increased protection and concerted habituation by Phil, Tyrone and the team. All the major predators are present, with leopard and lion very well represented. Elephant herds are always visible in the dry season months and the plains game is as numerous as it is varied from sable and hartebeest to zebra and puku (puku in their thousands!). Birding is top-class, with hundreds of species recorded in and around the Musekese area.
We appreciate that our guests come with a great variety of interests and we have taken care to ensure that the well-maintained equipment we use reflects that. From the flat-bottomed hulls of our sturdy river boats, to the option of game drive vehicles with or without the roof. For the keen photographers we have specially adapted camera mounts to ensure complete stability for your shots.
