Classic Kafue Safari

From: £Contact us

Join us on this exclusive small group safari to Kafue National Park as we explore the park’s variety of habitats in search of memorable and wonderful wildlife sightings.

Kafue National Park is one of the remaining tracts of true wilderness in Africa and it offers some of the most rewarding wildlife viewing on the continent. Covering an area of more than 22,000 square kilometres, this park is the second largest protected area in Africa. Such is the size of this enormous park that it encompasses an incredible range of habitats and we will notice dramatic changes whilst exploring the Kafue in search of fascinating fauna.

In the north we find the undulating plains and swamps of the Busanga. The plains in particular are well known for their prides of lion, but also cheetah which are rarely seen in other parts of Zambia. Spotted hyena and African wild dog can be observed here too. All the predators are attracted to this northern sector by the myriad of ungulates that tend congregate in the Busanga region. Large herds of blue wildebeest and zebra move across these plains and wetlands, and these are joined by a great diversity of antelope. In fact, the Kafue National Park is home to a quite astonishing 19 species of antelope including oribi, eland, grysbok and Defassa waterbuck.

The centre of the Kafue is dominated by miombo woodland and to the south it is typically sandy plains. However, this is all interspersed by the evergreen woodland that clings to the banks of the Kafue River and its various tributaries that carve through the park creating a veined and intricate network. It is these forested areas that provide excellent habitat for leopard and during our time in the Kafue the chances are good of seeing these alluring felines.

During our time in Kafue, the beautifully authentic and comfortable Musekese and Ntemwa-Busanga Camp will provide us with the perfect bases for hopefully countless opportunities to enjoy the wildlife and to experience the varying habitats of Kafue.
