Musungwa Lodge offers specialist safaris taking you into the heart of the bush by land cruiser, boat or foot, or the chance to relax, soak up the sun at the pool or at your lodge. Whichever is your choice you will take home memories never to be forgotten, the embers of the log fire, the call of the hyena.

At night soak up the stars… countless pinholes in the rich dark African night, the mirage heat, the splendour of the ever changing sunsets, the night orchestra of crickets, the distinct roar of a lion, the dry grass smell of the bush – the real Africa.

Lake Itezhi-tezhi shoreline varies from the grassy banks where the hippo graze to the rocky bays ideal for fishing, to the stretches of submerged trees – wild and wonderful perches, sculpted by nature for the breeding Cormorant.

Lake cruises

Musungwa guides you through this aquatic world in style on the “Zambezi Queen”. The “Zambezi Queen” has become part of Zambian history. Commissioned in the early 50’s as the luxury cruiser for the elite tourists of the time, she cruised along the Zambezi at the head of the mighty Victoria Falls, carrying a host of personalities including Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Now totally refitted she cruises Lake Itezhi-tezhi for you. Full day cruises and sundowner, booze cruises are available.
