The Lake Camp

Double storey main camp with eight exclusive rooms under canvas.

Eight rooms in total - six standard rooms en suite - two rooms with private swimming pool - one honeymoon suite
Main Camp

The Musango main area consists of a double storey viewing platform where guests can relax and view both the rising and setting sun.  There are areas to relax both upstairs and downstairs.  The ground level provides a shaded lounge area, with adjoining bar and dining room.

Upstairs is where we enjoy our morning coffee and light breakfast before heading out on the morning activity. The morning rising sun provides expansive views over the lake.

After your wake-up call, there is a light breakfast in the main lodge and you will return to the camp for mid-morning brunch.  The afternoon activity begins between 3.30 and 4.00 pm and includes sundowners with the glorious backdrop of the sun setting over the Lake.

After your day’s activities, you can relax around the campfire, watching the amazing night sky. Refreshments are always on hand and you will be hosted by one of the guides and/or Steve and Wendy.  All our guests sit together for dinner (unless they choose not to) and the evening is normally filled with fun, laughter and interesting stories about life in Zimbabwe and close encounters with the bush.


Children are welcome at the camp.  As well as the activities on the lake, Musango Island is covered in trees and there is a wonderful path winding through the woods, where they can spot buck and birds in complete safety.  There is also a swimming pool, hammock and countless fossils and animal skeletons dotted around the camp for them to investigate.  Our staff is very friendly and will always take the time to answer the questions of inquisitive little ones.  Bushbuck roam freely on the island and they are a great attraction to the children who can sometimes get close enough to feed them.  Every night, the younger members of the family will also enjoy feeding the catfish that swim around the shallows of the lake, in readiness for the nightly feeding frenzy.


The accommodation at Musango consists of six, twin, luxurious safari tents, each with an en-suite bathroom built of natural stone. These tented rooms are set in thick forest and face east over the lake, towards the rising sun.

Musango also boasts two honeymoon suites that have been uniquely designed and built of natural stone, under thatch. Special canvas interiors ensure total privacy. There is a private verandah and secluded, intimate plunge pool to cool off during the hot, summer months.
