Chisa Busanga Camp is in the heart of the Busanga Plains, in Zambia’s Kafue National Park – a true hidden gem. This camp has earned its unique status, with its accommodation being a series of ‘nests’ designed by an international architect. Each of the ‘nests’ has been built on stilts and mimics a weaver’s nest. It is guaranteed to make you feel completely immersed in these wild surroundings. The nests are eye-level with the trees, which means plenty of birdwatching.
The biggest innovation at Chisa Busanga Camp are the game viewing vehicles, which look like normal, open-air 4WDs but they are completely powered by solar electricity. These are the first electric game-drive vehicles on the Plains and they give you an almost ‘silent safari’ experience. They create minimal disturbance to the wildlife as they glide around.
This eco-friendly camp offers an array of activities led by local guides from bush walks and mountain biking to game drives across the endless expanse of wild terrain. Aquatic antelope such as lechwe roam the floodplains in their herds, while elephants lumber down to the patchwork of streams in the area. There’s always plenty of lion drama in this part of Kafue, and guides will use their local knowledge to track these phenomenal predators.
