About the Camp
Based in the spectacular area known as “Eden.” The Musekese Camp has allowed us to further improve our guests experience at camp, where nestled in a large stand of massive riverine trees overlooking an immense dambo, guests can sit and watch the diverse and large congregations of wildlife from the comfort of their chalet or whilst having a drink on the deck, from herds of elephant frolicking to the hundreds of puku keeping an eye out for one of the resident lion prides in the area.
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
Good cuisine at J&M Safaris is of utmost importance to us and with this in mind we have been fortunate to have Michelin-star trained chef Jamie Sparks create a bespoke menu and train our loyal and willing local kitchen staff. While we still use the ground oven for baking, our newly trained staff have been busy cooking up delicious meals and snacks which we trust will be unlike anything you’ve had at previous camps and something to remember us by!
The wildlife viewing is so good from camp, you will have a hard time tearing yourself away from the deck!
