Why

Discover the untamed and pristine beauty of Zambia's Kafue National Park. With its remote and unspoiled landscapes, this park provides an exclusive and authentic wilderness experience, far from crowded tourist spots. As a protected area, Kafue is teeming with wildlife, including the iconic Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino), cheetahs, hippos, wild dogs, and over 500 bird species, making it a paradise for birdwatchers.

Engage with nature through a variety of game viewing options, such as day and night drives, walking safaris, and boat cruises on the breathtaking Kafue River, where you can enjoy excellent boating and fishing opportunities. Photography enthusiasts will delight in capturing the park's stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife, from majestic predators to vibrant birds.

Kafue National Park offers a unique blend of wildlife, birdwatching, diverse ecosystems, and genuine safari experiences. A visit to Kafue promises an unforgettable journey, leaving lasting impressions of Africa's heartland.

When

The ideal time to visit Kafue National Park depends on the type of experience you wish to have. The dry season (May to October) is perfect for those who prefer cooler temperatures and prime game viewing conditions.

The wet season (November to April) brings lush landscapes and fewer tourists, making it an excellent time for birdwatching. This period also coincides with the calving season, offering chances to see young animals during game drives.

The shoulder seasons (April-May and September-October) provide a balanced experience with a mix of wet and dry season advantages. During these months, mild weather and some remaining lush greenery enhance game viewing experiences.

Where

The park offers a range of accommodation options, from luxurious lodges to comfortable tented camps. These accommodations combine comfort with sustainability, incorporating eco-friendly practices to preserve the park's natural beauty.

Busanga Safari Bush Camp

The lodge offers a genuine and intimate luxury safari experience in the heart of South-Central Africa. Nestled under sycamore fig trees on an island at the core of the plains, this exclusive camp with just four tents serves as the perfect outpost for observing an extraordinary wildlife spectacle.

Shumba Safari Camp

Shumba Camp stands as one of the most exclusive seasonal safari destinations in Africa. The limited accessibility ensures that guests experience front-row seats to some of the most dramatic and thrilling wildlife encounters on the continent, making each visit truly unique and memorable.
