The spirit of Busanga Bush Camp
The charming Busanga Bush Camp is hidden away within the heart of the Busanga Plains, in the pristine Kafue National Park. Here, surrounded by seasonal floodplains and hidden amongst sycamore fig trees, the camp boasts elegantly furnished tents, each with its own ensuite bathroom, including dual bucket showers, a hand basin and flush w.c. Mosquito netting is also provided.
Guests can dine on mouth-watering meals whilst drinking in the uninterrupted views of the plains from the charming dining area, shaded by a canopy of trees from which an unusual lantern chandelier hangs — a spectacular sight when lit up at night. Wholesome breakfasts are often served on the front deck, in the spacious sitting room and bar area, which provides breathtaking views over the seasonal floodplains. Adventures include twice-daily game drives, exhilarating spotlit night drives, walking safaris, boating excursions, hot air balloon flights as well as exceptional birdwatching.
What we love about Busanga Bush Camp

- Keep your binoculars peeled as the wildlife-rich Busanga Plains provide some of the best lion viewing in Africa.
- For those interested in birding, the park boasts 500 species, including endemics such as Chaplin’s Barbet.
