Lake Kariba private island promising wilderness magic

On a private island on Lake Kariba lies Musango Safari Camp, a member of Classic Safari Camps of Africa. Situated just off the Matusadona National Park, this owner-run retreat offers homely appeal without compromising on luxury.

A stone's throw from Matusadona, known as a wildlife haven, game drives are always rewarding. The camp overlooks the Ume River, giving guests the opportunity to canoe or take part in a boating safari guaranteeing a close and personal encounter with nature. Nature walks and tracking offer a different safari experience while cultural visits to the local village are available on request.  

Accommodation consists of six twin Luxury Safari Tents and two Honeymoon Safari Tents. Each comes with thatched roof, natural stone en-suite bathroom with shower and a private verandah featuring unrivalled views of Lake Kariba and the Matusadona National Park. The Honeymoon Suites also have intimate plunge pools. The main lodge laid out over two floors comprises an elevated bar, dining room and lounge area – great for game-spotting from a cosy armchair, raised above a sparkling swimming pool that beckons during the summer heat.
