On the first day of your trip, you will fly out to Kafue National Park and transfer by road to Musekese Camp. This camp overlooks a lagoon that attracts a lot of wildlife! Its communal lodge is a classic timber, stone, and grass thatch structure. Inside, there is a comfy lounge and dining area flowing out on to a deck. The deck in turn extends well into the lagoon system, providing some excellent sightings of the resident animals and birds. Guest accommodation consists of just four traditional chalets, featuring snug beds and lovely local furnishings! Every chalet has en-suite facilities of flush toilet, washbasin, and bucket shower. Activities from Musekese include morning and evening game drives, walking safaris, boating safaris, viewing from the camp’s hides, and special birding walks. There is loads to see in Kafue – lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, lots of different antelopes, and smaller species such as honey badger, side-striped jackal, and the charming pangolin. And there are almost 500 types of bird!

On Day 4 of your adventure, you will drive or walk to Busanga Bush Camp. This property has a fantastic rustic feel! The communal boma is positioned under a very old sycamore, so there is plenty of cooling shade. Four guest tents are set in a grove of trees, with stunning views out onto the plains. Each is simply yet comfortably furnished, and the en-suite facilities include bucket shower and short-drop loo. The main activity from Ntemwa-Busanga is morning, evening, and all-day game drives – the Plains are so vast, it makes sense to cover as much ground as you can! However, walking safaris and boating safaris are available too. This region of Kafue also contains a wealth of wildlife, from big game to bushpig and everything in between! If you enjoy photography, you will love capturing spectacular panoramas of the Plains and gorgeous close-ups of colourful birds.
