Standard Twin/Double Tents

Ideal for small groups or a very personal safari, Busanga Bush Camp is an intimate haven with just four tents and a main area looking out over the abundance of the plains. Witness sensational sunrises from camp as the sun-tinged mist reveals hundreds of red lechwe, puku, and other plains game feeding on the grasses.

Busanga Bush Camp – Boating *

Float through the channels at the beginning of the season when the floodplains are still filled with water.

Busanga Bush Camp – Dining Under The Stars

The "dining room" is shaded by the canopy of a majestic tree from which an unusual lantern chandelier hangs, romantically illuminating dinner. Evenings often wind up fireside, under the stars, ending a day of adventure and matchless hospitality.

Busanga Bush Camp – Game Drives

Interpretive game drives in open 4x4 vehicles allow guests to view large numbers of plains game such as puku, red lechwe, buffalo, and wildebeest – even the rare roan antelope. The famed lions of Kafue that patrol this wilderness, cheetah, and wild dog may be seen as well.
