Busanga Bush Camp, Kafue, Zambia

Busanga Bush Camp is a Classic Camp

A true original at the heart of the Plains

Busanga Bush Camp lies in the heart of the Busanga Plains, a vast mosaic of expansive grassy seasonal floodplains that extend to the horizon. When the mist rises off the floodplains as they dry up in winter, incredible sunrises and sunsets are experienced here, while the floodplains and dambos teem with wildlife and birds.

Hidden on a tree-island of sycamore fig trees, the camp has four well-appointed en-suite tents each with a veranda to take in the sweeping views. The lounge and bar area is under canvas with an uninterrupted view out over the plains. A little further back is the dining area, shaded by the canopy of a majestic tree from which an unusual lantern chandelier hangs, romantically lighting up dinner; most meals are served in the open air.

Highlights

  • The Busanga Plains provide some of the best lion viewing in Africa
  • Hot air balloon rides over endless plains, with hippo and dashing lechwe to be seen far below
  • At certain times,  the rising mist over the floodplains creates spectacular photographic opportunities

A Quote From Our Guests

“ We reveled in the space, the beauty of the plains and the game viewing was terrific (wonderful guides up there, Lexon, Ferrison etc) One day, we saw ten different adult lions (and only one other car) what more do you want? ”
