Named after the local Kaonde name for monkey-bread tree, Musekese lies just 25 minutes by boat from Lufupa airstrip in the centre of Kafue National Park.
Musekese occupies a low ridge overlooking a long, seasonally-inundated, grassy floodplain or dambo, which in turn looks onto the Kafue River. The sounds of the bush orchestra surround the camp with leopard coughing at night, hippo snorting and the eerie call of the scops owl.
The camp itself comprises of four well appointed, traditionally thatched chalets, all complete with comfortable beds, soft luxury linens and locally sourced furnishings. Small, extra touches ensure Musekese is unlike any other camp in the Kafue. Open air en-suite bathrooms come with traditional wood warmed bucket showers and flushing toilets, combining style with practicality for a comfortable stay.
The main lounge area at Musekese is under a cool, large grass thatch roof, providing shade in the heat of the day where guests can relax with a book from the library or an ice cold drink (or both!). Alternatively guests can sit and relax on the large main area deck, which extends into the dambo providing unparalleled game viewing and bird-watching opportunities, it is also a truly breathtaking site for dinner under the stars.
