Wilderness Busanga Bush Camp

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. The Busanga Plains are stunning and arguably Kafue’s finest game viewing area, being home to cheetah, a myriad of wonderful birdlife and some rarer mammal species such as Roan antelope. A visit to the Busanga Plains is a welcome addition to any Zambia safari and we think Busanga Bush Camp balances comfort and adventure perfectly.
