Welcoming family run safari camp on lake Kariba. Beautiful location, fabulous views over the lake. Different experience than many with much game viewing from boats. Especially good for birders with highly knowledgeable guiding. Excellent home cooked food

Dear "NorthStar"
Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to review our wonderful piece of Paradise - Musango Safari Camp.
We really appreciate you coming back to us through TripAdisor with wonderful recollections of your stay with us.
Boasting over 400 species of birds at Musango and have introduced this avian spectacle to many previously non-birders, who are now fully fledged bird watching enthusiasts. Looking forward to your return.

Well, what can I say about Musango Safari Camp?
It's a place that I would visit time and time again. It's my happy place!
This was my fourth visit to this beautiful bush camp on Lake Kariba and, like my other visits, I had the most amazing time.
Steve and Wendy are the owners of Musango who run a very tight ship with incredibly high standards. The camp is always perfectly clean, the staff are very friendly and professional and Conrad, the guide, is brilliant and a pleasure to spend time with.
The camp itself is lovely with 8 light and airy rooms with a comfy bed and a bathroom, a sitting areas inside and out and a stunning view of the sunrise over the lake, if you're awake early enough. The communal areas are great with plenty of comfortable seating, a bar and somewhere to charge your devices. Oh, and amazing views of the lake and distant mountains!!
The food is plentiful and delicious, and nothing is too much trouble. My friend is a vegetarian and can't eat eggs or onions - the chef coped wonderfully!
We did several game drives and cruises and saw many many birds - too many to name (mainly because I can't remember them all), lions, elephants, waterbuck, impala, zebras, warthogs, crocodiles, lizards and loads of other animals. Conrad was a wonderfully knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour - he had to with us two!
Wendy is one of life's nice people and is the perfect host. She ensures that your stay is perfect in every way, and is great company whenever you are lucky enough to spend time with her.
Steve has forgotten more than I'll ever know about the wildlife, the planet and the stars. He's very patient and loves to impart his extensive knowledge if he is asked - about pretty much anything! He's also a great hugger!!
There are many places that I want to visit but I keep getting drawn to Musango. I can't wait to go back again.....

From the moment we arrived at Musango we felt completely at home, welcomed by the owners Steve and Wendy .
Beautiful common areas very relaxing with all you could wish for and views of the lake to beat all.
Our room was perfect with everything you would expect, very comfortable bed and great bathroom , clean and with seating outside for quiet moments .
Very good brunches and suppers , just how they do it I don't know but superb
Activities on water and land are excellent, far to many birds to remember and with Steve's endless knowledge about everything birdy the trips were far more educational and interesting. The fishing great fun thank you Bradley and Robin you're brilliant bringing in Bream, Squeaker, and Vundu etc
To sum up an excellent experience to be recommended and definitely a place to return to on Kariba, thank you Steve, Wendy and your amazing staff we loved it .

Room tip: The best tip is to enjoy this remarkable place

A very special place with beautiful views, lovely facilities and a very warm welcome. The food was amazing, the beds and rooms very comfortable and the guiding for birds and wildlife and the lake trips were exceptionally interesting and educational. Truly a magical experience and we were very sorry to leave. Stephen and Wendy are fantastic hosts and the evenings were a joy, sitting around and soaking up the atmosphere, absolute perfection!

Three Nights was not enough time to unwind i this very special place in Kariba. If you looking for the true Africa experience and learning about all aspects of the animals, birds and flora of the bush Steve Edwards is the perfect guide. Once you have taken that all in, Wendy will provide you with meals that are exceptionally delicious and plentiful.

The Staff are attentive and always ready with a smile and a drink from the bar. Our room was secluded and complete with “cuddle puddle”.

A birders paradise and photographers slice of heaven. Fishing is plentiful and definitely a must when visiting Musango!

We will be back!!

Room tip: Plan Ahead.
