Overview of Busanga Bush Camp

One of the few accommodations in wild Kafue National Park, Busanga Bush Camp is situated on an island in a mosaic of seasonal floodplains and waterways – the Busanga Plains. The simple wood and canvas central camp, shaded by giant wild fig and date trees, has memorable views over the misty plains where great herds of puku, lechwe and buffalo graze.

Honeymooners will love Busanga’s private, romantic tents with their open-air bathrooms, wraparound windows and frothy mosquito netting. The birdlife is spectacular here; spot fish eagles, huge flocks of waterbirds and waders, cranes, herons and a plethora of other species on specialist birding walks, guided walking safaris and canoe trips in season. Together with day and night game drives you’re guaranteed to spot incredible wildlife.

    Busanga’s four airy Meru-style tents open onto private covered verandas on one side and open-air, en suite bathrooms with a shower and flush toilet on the other. Each tent has two queen-size beds, a hammock on the veranda plus cotton dressing gowns for that extra touch of luxury.

    General Facilities

    Spend your free time playing board games or reading a book from the library in the canvas-covered lounge area, or relax with a drink from the bar while looking out over the grassy plains in search of game.

    Breakfasts often take place on the deck overlooking the floodplains where herds of puku and red lechwe antelope feed at dawn. Dinners on the other hand are served in the open-air boma and under a romantic lantern chandelier hanging from the branches of a majestic tree.
