Jeffery & McKeith Safaris - Musekese Camp

Jeffery & McKeith Safaris - Musekese Camp

From our inception in 2013 to the 2015 season camp was situated on a small ridge overlooking a long and open seasonally inundated floodplain (dambo), beyond which lay the main Kafue River. In 2016 the camp will shift to a phenomenal area known as ‘Eden’. With the exact same feel as ‘old’ Musekese, the new site will give another x factor to the experience with camp nestled in a large stand of mature riverine trees overlooking a permanent water fed lagoon or dambo with prolific wildlife densities in plain view direct from camp.

Highlights

Musekese has a special feel, the sounds of the bush are in full flow, with leopard coughing at night, hippo snorting and the eerie call of the Scops owl, all adding to the ‘bush orchestra’ that plays out 24 hours of the day.


Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

More diverse than any park in Africa, the wildlife of the Kafue is as numerous as it is varied, with an abundance of big game including elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and even cheetah. The Kafue is also home to one of the last remaining viable populations of the rare and endangered African wild dog.

With 19 species of antelope, the Kafue is also a great place to find some of the less common ungulates, including Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, Defassa waterbuck, puku and red lechwe. Other species such as eland, roan, sable, oribi and blue wildebeest are present, to name but a few. In addition to the antelopes there is a plethora of other unusual wildlife with pangolin, bushpig, side-striped jackal, honey badger and numerous species of the playful mongoose family making up megafaunal diversity unrivaled anywhere in Africa.

Although the mammalian diversity is impressive it pales into insignificance when considering that the Kafue is home to almost 500 species of bird, a similar number of grass species, and a whole host of smaller flora and fauna, including a number of endemic but rarely seen plants and animals.

AccommodationAccommodation

Accommodation comes in just 4 uniquely crafted and well appointed thatched 'chalets', each named after the tree species whoch provides them with shade in the heat of the day. En-suite with flushing loos and running water, the copper finishings of these units add to the rustic, classic, 'Zambian' bush camp charm.
