Busanga Bush Camp (Kafue
National Park) Zambia
At 22 500 square kilometers, Kafue National Park is one
of the largest National Parks in Africa. It is fed by three
rivers, the Lufupa in the north-west and the Lunga and Kafue
in the north-east. The Lufupa River floods in the summer,
creating a large floodplain delta system that attracts
thousands of waterbirds. The Lunga and Kafue rivers are wide
and slow-flowing, banded by riverine forest. Habitats in the
Park are diverse, and include floodplains, miombo woodland
It has good concentrations of plains game and their
predators as well as the largest species diversity in
Zambia, including animals that are rare or non-existent in
other southern African countries, such as Lichtenstein's
hartebeest, roan antelope, Defassa waterbuck and oribi.
Birdlife is spectacular, consisting of 491 species. In the
extreme north of the Kafue lies the Busanga Plains - one of
Zambia's most significant wetland resources and one of the
few areas in the world that remain untouched by development
and human activity. Covering 750 square kilometers of
breathtaking wilderness, it is considered the jewel in the
Kafue crown; hence Wilderness Safaris' interest in bringing
guests to this spectacular area. This is the best area in
Zambia to see cheetah!
