In a small copse of sycamore fig trees, Busanga Bush Camp looks out across the vast grassy floodplains, at the heart of which it sits, and herds of passing game.

Made up of just four comfortable en suite tents, Busanga is an intimate and thoroughly authentic safari experience. Each has a veranda that soaks up the sweeping plains, a fine spot to watch the mist rise off the drying plains, a real spectacle when the sun is low in the sky.

There is also a lounge and bar area is under canvas at the tree line, and dining area is situated a little further back shaded by the canopy and lit by lanterns.

Activities at Busanga Bush Camp include day and night game drives, as well as boating during the early part of the season while unforgettable hot air balloon safaris fly from August to October. The Busanga Plains are famed for lion while wild dog and cheetah are also drawn to the prolific plains game, including puku, red lechwe, buffalo, wildebeest and the rare roan antelope. Hippo are also abundant, found in large pods in the channels. For birders, Kafue boasts around 500 species, including the endemic Chaplin’s barbet.
