Best Places To Stay On Safari In Kafue

Kafue is expasive and brimmed with attractions for the avid safari-goer. Often overshadowed by South Luangwa and the Lower Zambezi as a Zambian destination, it should not be underestimated as providing a different and fantastic safari experience. It has incredible birds, and rare antelope species and of course a very healthy dose of predators. It's biodiversity is incredible and it proves to be a real hidden gem. 

Busanga Bush Camp

Busanga Bush Camp is one of our favourite camps in the Kafue. Originally a privately run camp, Wilderness Safaris now run Busanga and have still left the lodge with its original charm. The location is superb, with good predator concentration and stunning views over the Busanga Plains. Not as luxurious as nearby Shumba, the camp caters for the safari enthusiast!

Shumba Camp

We vote Wilderness Safaris' Shumba Camp as Kafue’s best. It's in a great setting and has a real emphasis on the luxury experience. The area is visited by few guests so safaris here are very exclusive and the quality of guiding set very high. The Busanga Plains is famous for its predator concentrations and Shumba is set right in the best area….big game driving here is superb.
