Lying a short flight away from Victoria Falls, Musango Camp offers adventurous travellers an opportunity to go off the beaten track and enter a world where the wilderness still reigns supreme. Set overlooking the deep waters of Lake Kariba, this 8-tent camp sits on a private island next to the Matusadona National Park, one of the wildest and least visited reserves in Zimbabwe. It is a rugged landscape of mountains, giant riverside trees and towering clouds, matched by the size of the wildlife – this is big game country where elephant, buffalo and hippo pass by camp and where lions, hyenas and leopards fill the night with their calls.

Musango aims to deliver a comprehensive safari experience, mixing morning and afternoon game drives with boat safaris on the lake, guided walks with armed rangers, fishing expeditions and a sailing tour. There is also a chance to visit a local village for insight into how the local Tonga people have carved out a niche for themselves next to the lake. Expert local guides lead the way, communicating their knowledge and passion for the environment.

Surrounded by an electric fence, the camp welcomes children and has a swimming pool and plenty to do including hunting for fossils and feeding the catfish at night, which is always a hit with the younger ones. Musango also knows how to do romance: there are two honeymoon suites on offer, each with a private pool and secluded terrace.

Standard Safari Tent

Set under shady trees and facing sunrise over Lake Kariba, Musango’s six tented chalets have a thatched roof for protection against the sun and offer luxurious accommodation complete with a private stone-built bathroom with shower, basin and flush toilet. The well-furnished tents feature twin beds and plenty of space to unpack, dress and relax plus several pleasing touches like a flask of cold drinking water and electric lighting.

Honeymoon Suite

The two honeymoon suites at Musango Camp have been designed for ultimate privacy and each feature a large double bed, secluded veranda and a private plunge pool.


Powered by solar energy with a back-up generator, Musango Camp has a welcoming, double-storey building with comfortable lounge and well-stocked bar, complete with in-built plunge pool and upstairs viewing deck. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the views.

There is a wide range of activities on offer at Musango – game drives, boating, walks, village visits, rhino tracking, birding and canoeing are among the choices – and the lodge provides all fishing equipment for those keen to take on the Kariba tiger, which is noted as one of the best sporting fish in the world. An Internet connection is available at the office at certain times of day.


Your day begins with an early morning wake-up call when tea, coffee and biscuits served in the viewing platform before your morning activity. Returning to camp at mid-morning, you sit down to a hearty cooked brunch before indulging in a siesta or relaxing around the swimming pool. Cold drinks and snacks are served during your afternoon activity, after which you return to camp for the evening 3-course meal, enjoyed communally in the dining room, outside under the stars or even on a pontoon on Lake Kariba. Meals are international dishes infused with local ingredients and given an African twist. Private dining is available on request.
