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 have a drink on the deck, from herds of elephant frolicking to the hundreds of puku keeping an eye out for one of the resident lions 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.

About the company

J & M Safaris has been in existence for 6 years now, with both Phil and Tyrone having a history within the Kafue since they were children, both having worked for other operators before embarking upon their autonomous journey.

Initially supporting film crews and organising bespoke walking trails the next step was to secure a base for tourism operations. Phil and Tyrone were not keen to exist in an area next door to existing operators and so they set about exploring remote areas of the Kafue, on foot. Eventually, they settled on the very wild, picturesque but logistically challenging ‘Musekese’ area. When permissions were gained from the authorities to begin operations the next step was the creation of the road (this was a virgin bush!). 50km of the track was created (by hand, no machines!) by the first team of 10 workers, these became the core of the team that today work at Musekese and Ntemwa-Busanga camps.

Two years of operation at ‘old’ Musekese allowed exploration of the area and the creation of the first-ever game drive loops, opening up a world of unknown wildlife and varied habitats, notably the ‘Eden’ lagoon system. In the 3rd year of operation, the decision was made to move from ‘old’ Musekese to the Eden lagoon area, which is now where Musekese Camp is situated and has been operating for the past two seasons.
