Kafue National Park

Discover iconic Kafue National Park

Established in 1950, Kafue is Zambia’s oldest national park. It is the second largest wildlife sanctuary in the world, spanning 22,400 square kilometres (8,650 square miles) of spectacular African wilderness.

Spread over such a vast area, the Kafue National Park offers visitors excellent game viewing, birdwatching and fishing adventures. The beautiful Busanga Plains, in the north, stretch as far as the eye can see and are one of Zambia’s most significant wetland resources. Fertile dambos situated in the south are fed by the Lunga, Lufupa and Kafue Rivers – prime locations for viewing some of the 500 species of birds found in the park.
