At 22,500 square kilometres in size, Kafue National Park is one of the largest in Africa. The million hectare northern sector is the perfect location for camps: remote, wild and diverse with tracts of pristine wilderness. The north-west is dominated by the Busanga Swamps, a papyrus dominated wetland that gives way to the vast floodplain of the Busanga Plains, an area of seasonally inundated grassland dotted with isolated tree-islands. The Lunga, Lufupa and Kafue Rivers are lined with riverine forests and the landscape if is further patterned with broad-leaved miombo woodland, open plains, floodplains and island thickets.

The Busanga Plains offer concentrations of common species such as puku, lechwe, buffalo and wildebeest as well as comparative rarities not easy viewed in southern Africa such as roan, oribi and Lichtenstein’s hartebeest. There is a high concentration of lion, with species like cheetah and wild dog utilising those areas where lion are not present. Bird life is equally abundant and includes many “specials” such as Ross’s Turaco and Locust Finch.
