Musekese is a small, intimate and classically styled, traditional tented safari camp, situated on the banks of the Kafue river. Safari tents are furnished with comfy wooden beds and soft mattresses, bathrooms are open-air and grass thatch keeps the elements at bay whilst you bathe under traditional bucket hung showers, with hot water. Toilets are flush and cold water feeds into the sinks for washing.
You will be hosted by the most highly regarded team of Kafue experts who will take you under the skin of this incredibly remote, beautiful and diverse wildlife haven.
Musekese has a special feel, the sounds of the bush are in full flow, with leopard coughing at night, hippo snorting and the eerie call of the Scops owl, all adding to the ‘bush orchestra’ that plays out 24 hours of the day.

Robin and I loved this recent addition to Kafue. Phil and Tyrone have created a wonderful bush camp. Their depth of knowledge of the area and passion for the bush are instantly apparent. The camp is simple, comfortable and without fuss – our style. The river excursions were very productive – excellent birding and some wonderful views of crocs, hippo and lions. I thoroughly recommend this camp and look forward to our next visit.
