Overview

The Kasonso Busanga, located right in the heart of the Zambian Busanga Plains, serves as a prime game viewing area. It’s ideal for those seeking authentic wildlife encounter experiences. The standards of dining, guiding and service are high and several lodges in the Northern Kafue are among the most luxurious in Southern Africa.

Set in pristine wilderness, the Busanga is often referred to as the ‘mini-Serengeti’. It is home to 158 mammal species, including puku, lechwe, wildebeest, roan antelope, buffalo, elephant, an abundance of hippo. Predator sightings are particularly exceptional with the likes of lion, leopard, cheetah and the endangered wild dog.
