The camp is situated in a vast and unexplored corner of western Zambia offering guests exclusive access to remote and secluded wildlife areas in the company of professional and experienced guides.
Musekese Camp has only five chalets taking a maximum of ten people. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with all the necessities, including flushing loos and warm bucket showers under a mix of canvas and thatch. All our power requirements are drawn from a well configured solar set up, and 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.
May to November
With low visitor numbers and vast tracts of unexplored pristine wilderness and some world-class wildlife viewing, including the greatest diversity of ungulates in any park in sub-saharan Africa, the Kafue and Musekese in particular, offers visitors the unique wildlife encounters that make for a once in a life-time safari.
A typical day at our Musekese site can include any of a number of exciting activities; from boat cruises along the unhurried Kafue river and its tributaries searching for elusive and rare birds, to walking safaris where the smells, textures and undulations of the ‘real’ Africa are experienced in a more immersive manner. Open game drive vehicles allow guests to get up close and personal with the larger animals of the Kafue. In addition there are viewing hides and blinds, strategically hidden away for best possible photographic opportunities.
More diverse than any park in Africa, the wildlife of the Kafue is as numerous as it is varied, with 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.
With 19 species of antelope, the Kafue is also a great place to find some of the less common ungulates, including Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, Defassa waterbuck, puku and red lechwe. Other species such as eland, roan, sable, oribi and blue wildebeest are present, to name but a few. In addition to the antelopes there is a plethora of other unusual wildlife from pangolin to bushpig, all making up megafaunal diversity unrivaled anywhere in Africa. Although the mammalian diversity is impressive it pales into insignificance when considering that the Kafue is home to almost 500 species of bird, a similar number of grass species, and a whole host of smaller flora and fauna.
Mobile safaris are available too
