Located in the heart of the expansive Busanga Plains in Zambia, Busanga Bush Camp is surrounded by unspoilt natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Located in the Kafue National Park, guests are certain of spotting the abundant African game that make their home in these floodplains and grasslands.
Four simply-elegant appointed en-suite tents provide an intimate and remote getaway, allowing guest to submerge themselves in the wonders of the African wilderness. Surrounded by majestic fig trees, the camp attracts diverse and prolific birdlife, making it a ‘twitchers’ paradise.
Serene and remote, the camp is a peaceful santuary. The sound of birdsong gently rouses guests in the morning, urging them to take in the incredible African sunrise. A morning game drive begins the day’s adventures and experienced, qualified rangers impart a wealth of knowledge about the fauna and flora of the region. Red lechwe, wildebeest, buffalo, roan, oribi and puka roam the plains, and guests may be lucky enough to find pangolin and caracal. A high population of hippo cool themselves in the deep channels of the wetlands and – attracted by the wealth of antelope – predators such as lion, cheetah and wild dogs prowl the lands.
Activities such as walking safaris provide a close-up perspective of the plains and grasslands. Lunch is served on the plains and on their return to the camp, guests can find a quiet spot in the communal area to relax and unwind. Night drives offer excitement and a fascinating perspective of nocturnal life in the bush. The open-sided lounge and bar enjoy views over the endless plains and offer a perfect spot to watch as the sun sinks behind the horizon.
At night, a lantern chandelier transforms the al fresco dining area into a magical wonderland. The cuisine is hearty and generous and the roaring campfire invites guests to swap bush-stories as they linger under the stars. True to the African tradition of providing warm and helpful hospitality, service is dedicated, friendly and efficient.
Described by previous guests as ‘fantastic’, the camp enjoys an exceptional location, exceptional game-viewing and exceptional birding.
