Experience one of Zambia’s hottest wildlife meccas, the enormous Kafue National Park, one of the biggest parks in Africa, covering an awesome 22 400 square km where a few elite safari camps provide luxury accommodation for all nature fundi’s. There is so much space in Kafue, very few people, plenty of mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, and trees – and all can be enjoyed from the elegance of Busanga Bush Camp.
Find this rustic charismatic camp in a remote northwest corner of the park’s floodplains and book a family package for your safari holiday in Africa. Spend magical nights in a partially enclosed chalet – the best spot, in harmony with nature. Listen to the serenading birds and fall asleep to the sounds of nocturnal animals.
A safari here is not just about the big game. Get a bird’s eye view of the Busanga Plains aboard a hot air balloon and watch the spectacular misty, pink sunrises. The camp hides on a tree island of huge old sycamore figs, the comfy bar lounge area boasting undulating views of this landscape from a canvas shelter. The magical dining area is shaded by an ancient tree and features an unusual chandelier of lanterns to light up the food and drink.
Only 4 luxury ensuite tents shelter here too, with majestic sweeping views across the Plains where wildlife roams all day. Make the most of private decks, hot showers and huge queen beds per person. Some guests experience the extraordinary luxury of having the camp all to themselves and enjoy dining with the staff in the evenings. This Wilderness Safari camp excels in its commitment to guests and staff, surrounding communities and conservation with ongoing projects in all spheres of such sustainable ecotourism.
Delicious meals on a par with world-class hotels feed every guest to repletion and every meal is followed by a rich dessert! Staff place welcoming hot water bottles in beds and in game drive vehicles to keep everyone cosy. Learn all about biodiversity and Kafue in this intimate camp and set off on thrilling boating safaris too to get close to hippos, rare birds and other animals.
Nestled within a vegetative island of sycamore fig trees and wild date palms on the northwest side of the Busanga Plains within the Kafue National Park lies the extraordinary Busanga Bush Camp. It’s not meant to be a majestic camp but it holds its own as a rustic chic escape in the heart of a lush wilderness where floodplains extend for miles and the guests are there to game view and soak up the splendid scenery. Busanga Bush Camp is certainly a first-class little Zambian safari accommodation choice with a very earthy and meaningful approach.
The vast, meadow-like Busanga Plains extend in all directions around the camp, offering a remarkable sense of freedom and possibility. The plains teem with birds and grazing antelope, while misty mornings and evenings are illuminated by unique pink sunrises and dusks.
With just four stylish suites, this dry season-only camp captures the authentic spirit of safari style and warm Zambian hospitality. The spectacular views from the camp, the wildlife encounters during day and night game drives and the exhilarating guided walks immerse guests well and truly into the life of the Plains. One of the cherries on the top is a hot air balloon ride providing phenomenal panoramas and a different perspective. Look out for tiny puku, stately roan antelope, lions and cheetahs!
Busanga Bush Camp remains dedicated to ecotourism in the Kafue National Park and aims to be a constant presence in the area to fight poaching and to empower communities surviving on the edge of this fragile ecosystem.
