Kafue National Park covers a massive area in western Zambia. It’s known for its abundant wildlife and the Kafue River, running north to south through the park. In the north, the fertile Busanga Plains are home to lions, zebras, abundant birdlife and the sycamore fig trees of Busanga Swamps. In the more remote south, elephants and antelopes roam the Nanzhila Plains, and hippos swim in the waters of Lake Itezhi-Tezhi.

Mayukuyuku Bush Camp is going to be the next Camp for the next 2 nights. It is located on the banks of the Kafue River in one of the most picturesque spots in the whole Park. The Kafue is one of the world’s largest game sanctuaries, about the size of Wales. It is well known for it’s extremely diverse variety of terrain, wildlife and birds, probably second only to Serengeti, and is still fairly unexplored to this day. Four of the Big Five are here, plus Cheetah, Wild Dog, and over 450 species of birds.
You are unlikely to see many other people or vehicles which gives a sensation of having a private safari. The animals are sometimes more elusive than in other more commercialized parks, but this makes your sightings all the more special.
This will be your last Camp for the next 2 nights. The camp is situated in Kafue’s Busanga Plains. Secluded and special, the Busanga Plains can be found in the north of Zambia’s Kafue National Park, one of the continent’s largest protected spaces. If it’s raw nature, off-the-beaten-track and authentic that you want out of a trip to Africa, this region delivers. The plains are positioned on an ancient lake bed which undergoes regular flooding during Zambia’s rainy season (November to April).
