Busanga Bushcamp

About Busanga Bushcamp, Kafue National Park

Busanga Bushcamp, in Kafue National Park, is a remote camp providing access to game viewing on the Busanga plains. A luxuriously rustic camp consisting of 5 framed tents with ensuite bathrooms, private terraces overlooking the plains and hammocks to rest up in during the afternoon hours. 

The Busanga pride of lions and cheetah are the main attraction in this area; bear in mind that on our last visit the lions were regular visitors to the camp!

Lodge Details

Style

Small and exclusive with a traditional safari camp feel.

Setting

In the remote Kafue National Park, with spectacular east facing views, perfect for enjoying the sunrise.

Accommodation & Facilities

There are just 4 pole and canvas chalets, each in the style of a traditional meru tent. Each room has 2 queen sized beds swathed in mosquito netting and is decorated using natural fabrics and colours. En-suite bathrooms are outdoors with flush toilets, hot showers and lots of complimentary toiletries; there is no door separating the bedrooms from the bathrooms as the rooms are not completely closed, fantastic for those wanting a real outdoor feel. Each room has its own private wooden veranda with a comfy hammock and spectacular views over the plains.

The main lounge and bar area is the centre of the camp, a large wooden structure with a canvas roof. The views from here are outstanding and, as it is east facing, breakfast can be enjoyed whilst watching the sunrise behind herds of puku grazing on the plains. There is also a dining boma for you to enjoy your dinners under the light of a stunning chandelier.

Dining

Breakfast, brunch and a three course dinner is served. Food is really good and is served both indoors and al fresco.

Activities

Day and night game drives are available and due to the open terrain, unlike most parts of Zambia which have more bush, these are the best way of viewing the wildlife. Short walking safaris can be arranged and in the wetter months it is possible to venture out in a Mekoro (dug out canoe) or motor boat.

Child Policy

Children over 12 are welcome. Between the ages of 8 and 12, the entire camp must be booked out on an exclusive basis. The camp is unfenced and potentially dangerous so children must be supervised at all times.
