Place: Busanga Bush Camp lies on a verdant island in the middle of Kafue’s Busanga Plains. Day and night drives and seasonal boating take in the diverse wildlife in this remote place on the ground, or a hot air balloon ride by air.
Accommodation: This intimate camp has just four tents set under leafy fig trees. The main area – under canvas – is a favourite space amongst guests, particularly at sunrise when the rising mist gradually reveals masses of lechwe and puku dotted across the floodplain. Dining also takes place under the canopy of a majestic tree from which an unusual lantern chandelier hangs, romantically lighting up dinner.
Purpose: Despite making a capital loss in the Busanga Plains every year – due to its remoteness and shortened tourism season – our presence is critical for the survival of this fragile ecosystem through the support of anti-poaching activities and employment.
NOTE: Busanga Bush Camp is open between 01 June and 31 October each year.
