Is the Busanga Plains Camp for Me?
The Plains Camp is the seasonal luxury bush camp of Mukambi Safaris located deep in the heart of the famous Busanga Plains in the north of beautiful Kafue National Park.
A wide variety of species is found on the plains including Lion, Buffalo, Hippopotamus, Lechwe, Side-striped Jackal, and Blue Wildebeest. In addition, large numbers of elephants and 500 bird species are recorded; watch for roan antelope and the rare oribi antelope.
The raised boma (communal area), with open campfire and dining area, is rustic, informal and overlooks the openness of the plains, only interrupted by tree studded islands where Fig trees and wild Date Palms draw their nutrients from the remains of giant anthills. Relax and enjoy a refreshing dip in our pool or sunbathe on the wooden deck whilst overlooking the surrounding wetlands. A wooden viewing platform on stilts tucked away high up in the characteristic Fig tree above the Boma offers a breath-taking view directly onto the floodplain.
Busanga, a landscape so distinctive, it is like no other you will see in Africa. This is the Africa you have dreamt of and you can visit this unique area with Mukambi Safaris. It offers a real “home away from home” experience, where service is professional and friendly, yet unobtrusive.
