At 22 000 square kilometres, Kafue is the largest national park in Zambia with the greatest biodiversity with 480 birds and 15 mammal species. It was established as a National Park in the 1950’s by the legendary Norman Carr, and remains little-known and largely unexplored. Vast tracts of its virgin bush remain untouched. The Lunga and Kafue Rivers offer boating and birding, but the game-viewing highlight is the Busanga Plains in the north. This is a dry season destination with the best months being from June to October.

Mukambi Plains

Mukambi Plains is one of few lodges with access to the remote and incredible Busanga Plains where animals are the most abundant in the park. It’s a classic safari experience in a remote wilderness.
