Musango Safari Camp: Our View

Musango Safari Camp, owned and run by Steve and Wendy Edwards, should be on everyone’s ‘bucket list’. Nestled along the shorelines of Lake Kariba on a private island adjacent to Matusadona National Park, this lovely safari camp offers incredibly good value for money, a huge variety of activities, beautiful accommodations and great dining. With only 6 twin en suite chalets and 2 honeymoon suites, a very private and intimate safari experience is guaranteed in this remote corner of Africa.  The relaxed ambience of the camp ensures guests can be as active or laid back as they like, and the friendly hospitable staff will leave you wanting for nothing!

With access by light aircraft from Harare, Kariba, Hwange, Victoria Falls, and Mana Pools, Musango is easily combined into multi destination safari itineraries, and combines very well with Mana Pools, Hwange and Victoria Falls.

Musango Safari Camp: The Details

Steve Edwards worked for the Department of National Parks and Wild Life Management for 18 years, three of which he spent as Warden of Matusadona National Park. When he retired from service in 1990, he followed his dream by setting up Musango.

Steve has a deep knowledge of the bush and a quiet demeanor that will leave you feeling safe even when you are walking with lion, buffalo and rhino. He is also an avid photographer and keen bird watcher, and since discovering a dinosaur fossil site in the Matusadona National Park, he has become fascinated by paleontology.

Steve and his wife, Wendy, live on the island and are passionate about Musango.  Wendy manages the island, training the staff, supervising the cooking and cultivating the gardens. Their natural exuberance and friendly spirit ensure that your stay here will be more than just a holiday; indeed many of their visitors come back time and time again.
