Musango Camp

Relaxing, well laid out room with veranda and plunge pool (we were given a honeymoon suite). Pretty public areas. Friendly, helpful staff-the barman and waiter.

However, we were surprised when we arrived to find there is an electric fence around the camp. This was not mentioned on the Musango website, and in Expert Africa's information only under 'Children' which we would have no reason to read (since amended). We were at Musango at high water and so saw no animals on the island, or from the island. Though we understand that the fence is there for safety reasons, we prefer a more wilderness experience, rather than being shut away from the animals. Hence the low rating for location.

Breakfast and afternoon tea were laid out on the upper deck for guests to help themselves. There were no guides or staff apart from in passing. In other camps we have been used to these being gathering times with the guides where we chat about the next activity. This creates a sense of anticipation and excitement which we missed here.

We did feel at times that Wendy and Steve's focus was distracted by other things, such as camp matters and local visitors with whom they had friends in common.

Excellent time at Musango

We had a really brilliant time during our 2 day stay at Musango.

Steve, Wendy, Graham and Robyn together with their team ( Conrad, Forest, Stacey, and their excellent fisherman) went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. we went on a boat visit to the local village, game safaris by boat, as well as fishing and lots of bird watching.

All meals were good and eaten in the good company of fellow guests. An after dinner treat included looking for Saturn through Steve's telescope

Together with a legend

My fellow travellers and I had the great pleasure to spend all the time of our stay at Musango with owner and Zimbabwe legend Steve Edwards.

I enjoyed every minute of my stay at his camp: the rooms, the main area, the garden, the view over the lake, the pontoon boat cruises and game drive with exceptional sightings. Sunsets on Lake Kariba, you will never forget them..

Steve had so many stories to tell, funny and earnest, and for me, it was especially interesting to hear his opinion on Zimbabwe`s political future. Food was the best on my whole trip. Believe it or not, we even had Filet Wellington for dinner one night and the bream fresh from the lake was a real delight.

Musango Safari Camp review

Fabulous camp and wonderful hosting by Steve. Upgraded to the honeymoon suite due to camp being empty.

Lovely game viewing by boat and land rover.

Nice to be by the water after dusty Hwange!
