Gorges is famous for its spectacular views, described by some as the best in southern Africa; whether you are enjoying a cup of coffee at sunrise on your private veranda or a cool refreshment by the pool at sunset, you will be constantly drawn to the stunning vistas provided by the Batoka Gorge and the rushing waters of the Zambezi River below.

One of Africa’s 10 best safari guidesSteve Edwards –Telegraph UK

The bear-like owner of Musango was warden for Matusadona Park for many years.

Twenty years ago, he set up his own safari business and finally built Musango – the camp of his dreams. He is also chief guide, leading his guests on walking safaris while Wendy, his wife, runs the camp

Here, whether you are tracking black rhino on foot, star-gazing in the clear Kariba skies or sneaking up on a herd of buffalo, a walk with Steve is a revelation. “There is so much more to the bush than what you read about or see on television,” he says. “My job as a guide and wildlife enthusiast is to introduce you to its wonders.”
