The ultimate guide to your next Kafue National Park Safari

Get to Know Kafue National Park

The perennial Kafue River and seasonal Busanga floodplains are the star attractions in a varied national park that boasts thriving cheetah and African wild dog populations

The Kafue is an impressive river worth exploring, but the seasonally inundated Busanga floodplains should feature on every Zambian safari itinerary. Only accessible when the waters recede during the dry season, the grassy plains are interspersed with tree islands that create an incredibly scenic landscape peppered with all manner of wildlife.

In midwinter Busanga still, holds a large amount of water and the mists that rise off the submerged floodplains creates spectacular scenes that are at their enthralling best at sunrise and sunset. Birdlife and lions are especially prolific on the Busanga floodplains.
