Wilderness Busanga Bush Camp is an intimate tented bush camp nestled into a fig tree island in the heart of the Busanga Plains in northern Kafue National Park.

Wilderness Busanga Bush Camp is a camp for Africa enthusiasts, offering a little wilderness and adventure in addition to spectacular scenery, specialist game viewing and a peaceful and exclusive natural environment. The camp itself is very comfortable, but the emphasis is not on luxury or style, but rather on location and experience. The management team and camp staff offer a warm welcome and the camp has a relaxed communal atmosphere.
