Busanga Bush Camp, Kafue, Zambia

Busanga Bush Camp is a Classic Camp

Things to do at Busanga Bush Camp

Activities at Busanga Bush Camp include day and night game drives, led by qualified guides who are extremely knowledgeable about the area and its wildlife, as well as boating during the early part of the season while hot air balloon safaris run between September and November.


Game drives

Interpretive game drives in open vehicles allow guests to view large numbers of plains game such as puku, red lechwe, buffalo and wildebeest and even the rare roan antelope. The famous lions of Kafue, cheetah and wild dog are also to be seen.


Guided night drives

Led by a highly trained and knowledgeable guide, night drives offer a glimpse into Busanga Plains’ unique, nocturnal world. A diverse range of species may be seen at night, including genet, civet, owls and occasionally the elusive leopard.


Hot Air Balloon Safari

The most exclusive wildlife ballooning in all of Africa, this activity allows you to take to the skies in style. Gaze over scenic splendour, watch hippo playing far below and fly eye-to-eye with an eagle. This experience (complimentary for guests who stay three nights or more) ends with a champagne breakfast.


Boating

Early on in the season, the Busanga Plains are still covered in much water. A boating excursion during this time allows for exploration of the channels and their life.


Specialist birding safari

Boasting 491 species, including the endemic Chaplin's barbet, birding enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice on a specialist birding safari. The area is also alive with rollers, bee-eaters, kingfishers, herons and large flocks of storks, to name a few.

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? ”
