Interpretive game drives in open vehicles

On game drives, guests may 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 ± 3 hours

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.


Specialist birding safari ± 3 hours

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.


Full-day safari in the plains with picnic lunch

Enjoy a full day of game viewing with a knowledgeable guide, with a restful midday siesta comprising a delicious picnic lunch under some shady trees.


Hot Air Balloon Safari

Nowhere else in Zambia can you take to the skies in such style. Gaze over scenic splendour, watch hippo playing far below and fly eye-to-eye with an eagle. This experience (for guests who stay 3 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.
