I have now visited the Musiara Swamp and its famous Marsh Pride of lions 3 times and am planning my 4th trip for November of this year. JT Safaris have been so wonderful to work with and their prices are absolutely unbeatable. I will never us another company and recommend them to ANYONE wanting to experience the wonders of Africa.

The Musiara marsh was quite wet, and very green. Normally not much game at this time of year, but the elephant were plenty as were nice herds of waterbuck and impala. The hippos pools near the marsh were full of hippo, but due to the high level of the river were not that visible.
