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!
Busanga Bush Camp - The Details
Busanga is one of the Wilderness Safaris most authentic safari camps anywhere. Located in the heart of the Busanga Plains in Kafue and with only three rooms (four for group bookings is possible) the camp, discreetly hidden away from view, is located on an island overlooking the Busanga Plains.
The area is an expanse of seasonal floodplains that play host to some of the most untouched and unspoilt game viewing in Africa. There are superb views over the floodplains in front of the camp. Each room is tented with thatch walls and large doors that open out onto the floodplains themselves.
The en-suite bathrooms all offer showers under the stars and although it’s not as luxurious as neighbouring Shumba, Busanga offers that bush feel that hardened safari enthusiasts crave for.
The bar and lounge area are tucked away under huge trees and give an unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere. Although the rooms do have sitting out areas which offer great views there is more character and atmosphere in the lounge area where guests find they spend much of their ‘free’ time.
