Kafue National Park

Although Kafue does not pretend to match up in terms of wildlife, it is a magical place for those wanting to get off the beaten track. There are few visitors in the 22,000 square kilometres and some lovely lodges. Most people fly-in to the camp/lodge within the park and enjoy guided safaris on foot, by boat and in 4x4. You can also drive-in to the park but in our experience you might not get the same level of expertise and knowledge of the local flora and fauna this way.

Kafue is at the forefront of conservation efforts in Zambia and has been very successful at increasing its wildlife with a 487% increase in recent years.

The Busanga Plains in the north-west is the most famous region of the park - a plateau studded channels fed by the Lufupa River. The plains are home to Kafue's best wildlife with cheetah, lion and wild dog all here.

There are quite a few bushcamps to choose from although many of our clients stay at the Wilderness camps Busanga and Shumba bushcamps.
