Busanga Bush Camp, Kafue

Lying in the north-western section of the Busanga Plains in the extreme north of the Kafue National Park, Busanga Bush Camp is about as ‘wild’ as you can get in today’s world; an unfenced mosaic of expansive grassy seasonal floodplains and ‘dambos’ (open grassy areas that sometimes fill with rainwater).

The simple camp is built on a fig tree ‘island’ in the heart of the plains and comprises just three tents each with panoramic views of this wildlife paradise. Day and night game drives and walking safaris are very rewarding - the plains are home to a huge variety of plains game and many predators. Lion sightings are particularly good and it is also the only place in Zambia where cheetah can be seen.

  • Although we bothered Lydia on several occasions over small matters, she was always patient and very helpful. The whole organisation from Heathrow and back was seamless and first class. Game watching on this trip surpassed all that we had seen before in the one trip. Our thanks to Ultimate yet again
