Beautiful Busanga Bushcamp

A wonderful place to start a holiday in Zambia & disconnect from everything: it is truly beautiful and peaceful.

The standards of the rooms are excellent with the extremely comfortable beds! Food is delicious. Immaculate attention to details & excellent coffee brought to your room every morning. The Staff is lovely: Ondyne was most helpful in liaising with other people to successfully retrieve my lost luggage from Lusaka. Pyben is ideal in his role.

The game drive routes may seem a bit repetitive but we had excellent lions sightings (including an adorable cub) and a picture perfect leopard "hanging" in a tree! The hot air balloon trip was amazing with Erik, a very skilled and entertaining pilot .

Busanga Bushcamp review

A lovely camp on the plains. Unknown to us before we arrived, due to spending 3 nights there a free balloon safari was included. This was a wonderful way of seeing the animals and the plains.

Initially we were informed that no walking safaris were available. However the information stated otherwise and it was all sorted out very satisfactorily.

Excellent camp

Well organised camp and great staff. You would expect this for the price.

The included balloon flight was a do-not-miss activity

Enjoyable stay

Busanga Bush Camp is a small, friendly and well managed camp, with excellent guiding from Isaac.

There is certainly good game viewing on the Busanga Plains, but it is more widely spread than in some other reserves. We very much enjoyed our stay, but would probably not recommend BBC for a first time safari.

The helicopter transfer in was fun. We didn't know that, when staying for three nights or more, a complimentary balloon ride is included. Too bad we couldn't go because of the wind, but it would have been a selling point.

Busanga Bushcamp review

Great staff who were consistently helpful and cheerful. Super food produced from their 'fire-pit'cooker.

Busanga Bushcamp review

Absolutely loved this camp and wished we could stay for a few more days. Our tent looked out onto a wide open plain covered with antelope. Saw two amazing large male lions on our last morning strolling out of the mist. A lovely sight.

This was the end of our one week Kafue Rivers and Plains tour with Brent Harris as our guide. It was a great trip and I highly recommend it, especially if Brent is the guide.

Kapinga Camp review

Itinerary changed and we stayed at Busanga. We were very happy with all aspects of our stay here.

We had a problem with tsetse flies on our journey here. In fact, they were a problem on lots of drives out from Lufupa though not at Lufupa Camp. we will complete this page as though is was Busanga.

Busanga Bushcamp review

With the best will in the world Solomon tried to find us game but there really was very little about. The drives were arduous (long and bumpy) with little result. Again tsetses were an issue.

Solomon was great, as was Mwanga (spelling?), and the chefs. All were welcoming to a fault and exceedingly good company.
The setting was great, looking out over the plain, just rather empty!

Busanga Bush Camp review

Another beautifully sited camp also expertly run. The rooms were lovely and the staff fantastic. The food was again superb. Laura and JD made us feel very welcome by greeting us as we crossed in boats with drinks and food. Nothing was too much trouble when I was a bit unwell one night.

My husband's supper was bought to our room and we were looked after very well. The next morning we stayed in camp and enjoyed the raised deck and our own deck for watching animals on the plains.

The guided trips were lovely and the sight of hundreds of open beaked storks gathering on one of the 'islands' before taking off and turning the sky black as the sun went down is something we will always remember.
