Day 1-4: Musango Safari Camp, Lake Kariba
The planet’s most voluminous man-made lake, Kariba is a popular tourist destination that was created in the 1950s when the mighty Zambezi was dammed. It stretches for more than 200 kilometres along the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, forming a natural boundary between the two countries. The lake’s waters are home to abundant crocodiles, hippos, fish and aquatic birds, while its shoreline and islands are rich with terrestrial game such as elephant and buffalo. It has become one of Zimbabwe’s main tourist attractions offering houseboat holidays, fishing safaris and wonderful game viewing experiences.
Overnight: Musango Safari Camp
Musango Safari Camp is an exclusive 16 bed camp situated just off the shoreline of the Matusadona National Park. Musango is the only owner run safari camp on Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe. Just a short flight away from Victoria Falls or Kariba, Musango offers an abundance of wildlife and bird life, with a wide selection of activities available or the option to simply relax.
The Musango activities include walking safaris, Big 5 game drives, boating safaris, cultural tours, sailing trips to Starvation Island and tiger fishing on the famous Lake Kariba. The activities offered are fun, informal and operated by trained and experienced guides.
