MUSEKESE CAMP – KAFUE NATIONAL PARK

Musekese Camp is a lovely little bush camp perched on the edge of a spectacular lagoon in the Kafue National Park – remote and hidden away from the outside world.

The camp is owner run by Tyrone and Phil who not only guide but are also heavily involved with Musekese Conservation – a Zambian run non-profit organisation which helps provide resources for conservation projects working across the Musekese-Lumbeya area of the Kafue National Park.

With just 5 comfortable chalets, excellent guiding and a wild and remote location this little camp offers the opportunity to explore this game rich area by vehicle, on foot or by boat along the emerald green Kafue River.

LOCATION

Musekese is located in a remote part of the central area Kafue National Park in Zambia. Access is via a 5 hour road transfer or by a light aircraft flight from Lusaka.

CAMP

Musekese Camp has only five chalets, taking a maximum of ten people. There is a minimum of two guides on hand at any time, which means you are entirely assured of activities taken at your pace and interest.

Rooms at Musekese Camp are spacious and comfortable with all the necessities – proper beds, ensuite flushing toilets and on-demand hot water showers. All power requirements are drawn from a well configured solar set up. Whilst there are no charging facilities in the rooms, the main area has plenty of surplus power 24/7 to keep all your devices fully charged and drinks ice cold.

The main area has a lounge and dining area under a huge billowing canvas roof and expansive wooden decking to enjoy outdoor dining and drinks around the fire pit. The plains in front of the camp have enough game to warrant game viewing with a drink during siesta time!

ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

Kafue National Park is a unique and pristine wilderness with magnificent scenery, game viewing and bird watching. Still today some two thirds of the Park remains designated as Wilderness Area where only walking is allowed.

This pristine wilderness is made up of an incredible collection of diverse habitats. From the remote and seasonally inundated Busanga swamps in the north of the park, through the central miombo woodlands and dambos, to the more sandy southern plains. Not to mention the evergreen forested areas that line the banks of the mighty Kafue River and its tributaries.

More diverse than any park in Africa, the wildlife of the Kafue is as numerous as it is varied. There’s an abundance of big game including elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and even cheetah. The Kafue is also home to one of the last remaining viable populations of the rare and endangered African wild dog.

A safari in Kafue National Park can be very rewarding. Not only because of the exciting sightings of wildlife, but also due to the absence of other tourists. You usually won’t see other safari tourists!

The pristine wilderness of Kafue National Park can be enjoyed between June and December. Due to the rains, the park gets inaccessible and camps are closed for a few months. The Busanga Plains area only becomes accessible from July and the camp stays open to November or December, depending on the weather.

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 hundreds!). Birding is top-class, with hundreds of species recorded in and around the Musekese area.

Game drives – are a sure bet for wildlife photographers allowing you to get closer and cover greater distances. We have a modest road network designed by us to maximize game viewing opportunities whilst also preserving the different habitats and leaving great expanses for walking.

Walking Safaris – are best in the morning when temperatures are cool and tracks and signs are fresh! Walks are tailored to suit but are typically a gentle amble through the bush. This allows you to experience the smaller, more intricate things that might be missed from a vehicle.

Boat Safari – boating is arguably one of the finest ways in which to experience the Kafue National Park; little is known about the Kafue River by first time visitors, but it never fails to impress, with its crystal clear perennial waters drawing in boundless wildlife and a stunning array of birds.

Treehouse Hide – near the camp is an elevated hide overlooking the northern portion of the Eden Lagoon. Relax on a comfy beanbag with a cold drink and binoculars in hand and see what unfolds.

Bird Watching – birding is exceptional throughout the Kafue – whether on a multi-hour birding walk in the bush, or on a short meander around the confines of the camps with your guide and/or host, you will be sure to see birds both numerous and rare.

MUSEKESE CAMP IS CLOSED FROM DECEMBER THROUGH TO MAY EVERY YEAR

THE CAMP WELCOMES FAMILIES WITH OLDER CHILDREN – WE RECOMMEND 14+
