Busanga Bush Camp – Kafue Busanga Plains
Busanga Bush Camp lies on a verdant island in the heart of the Kafue’s Busanga Plains, a vast mosaic of grassy seasonal floodplains that extend to the horizon. When the mist rises off the drying floodplains in winter, incredible sunrises and sunsets can be experienced, and the plains and dambos teem with wildlife and birds. Due the remoteness and shortened tourism season here, our presence is vital for the survival of this fragile and extraordinary eco-system.
Hidden beneath sycamore fig trees, this intimate camp has just four well-appointed en-suite tents, each with a veranda to take in the sweeping views. The main area – under canvas – is a relaxed space with uninterrupted panoramas over the plains. The ‘dining room’, a little further back, is shaded by the canopy of a majestic tree from which an unusual lantern chandelier hangs, romantically lighting up dinner.
Things to do at Busanga Bush Camp

Best Time to Visit Zambia
The recognised best times to visit Zambia for the best game viewing along with pleasantly mild daytime temperatures is during the dry season, May to October although September and October can be exceptionally hot. It is during the dry season when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. During the wet season (November to April) some roads in the parks can be inaccessible resulting in some camps being closed. The scenery in Zambia is always spectacular throughout the year.
It is your responsibility to check the entry visa requirements with the individual embassy of each country you intend visiting prior to departure.
