Great location at the edge of the plains

We love tented camps, but a slightly more spacious tent would give room for a bigger bed and clothing rack.
The Ntemwa treetop bar is a fantastic lookout.

Busanga wildlife is quite different. we saw herds of eland, roan-and sable antilopes, lots of lechwe, puku and hippo's together with warthogs, apart from lions zooming in on a herd of wildebeest.
Crowned cranes, secretary birds, skimmers and kingfisher interacting!

TseTtse flies were no nuisance in neither of the Kafue camps but for the transfer between Musekese and Ntemwa we were happy with the closed vehicle.

Remote gem in Kafue

Location and accommodation:
Our drive to Ntemwa Busanga from Musekese went through a wooded area well-inhabited by tsetse flies - the only time they actually bothered us in Kafue. Ntemwa Camp itself, though pleasantly situated against trees, had no problem. The camp's attractive minimalist design particularly appealed to us, with its elegant fly over the lounge area, its lunch table/bar on a raised platform and flowering cassia beside the meshed tents. We loved the small size of the camp (just 3 or 4 tents and a resident staff of 4).

Activities:
These consisted of game drives on the spacious Busanga Plains, or around the wooded edges near the camp, and observations at some local lagoons. We saw buffalo, roan and sable antelopes, wildebeest, hartebeest, duiker, puku, impala, oribi and reed buck then a large herd of red lechwe at the further end of the plains. Also of course hippos, crocodiles, warthogs, zebras, elephants and numerous birds, including the attractive wattled cranes, open-billed storks and African skimmers.

A lovely finale to our safari.

Wonderful bush camp, in a great spot

I loved my stay here: there is a real sense of remoteness, on the edge of the stunning Busanga Plains, and the camp itself offers the same high standards as its sister, Musekese.

Tents are comfortable and well spread out, offering plenty of privacy; the food was excellent and guiding standards high. Highlights included a full-day drive out on the plains with Effie, with large herds of sable, roan, lechwe, buffalo and elephant; evenings at the pools nearby the camp were special, too.

Birds are very strong: James, a guide with encyclopaedic knowledge, and another guest counted some 130 different species the day I arrived. There are no other camps close by and we seldom saw another vehicle... which is exactly what I like.

Highly recommended.

My favorite camp in Busanga Plain

Ntemwa is a small, rustic but comfortable camp with en-suite oper-air bathroom with flash toilet.

I stayed there for 3 nights and was guided by James. I was amazed by his knowledge. He was also looked after me very well. Busanga plains is stunning. I love this vast open plain.

The game was a bit quiet while I was there, but I saw buffaloes, wothog families, many antelopes, and beautiful birds.

It takes more than 3 hours drive to get there from its main camp Musekese (and Tsetse were very active in some places) but worth to visit. I want to stay longer next time.

Basic but very acceptable bush camp

Very small 4 tents bush camp. This camp is owned and run by the same guys that own Musekese camp.

The tents were small meru style tents with en-suite bathroom and flush toilet.

Food was good and plentiful with meals being taken together on one large table.

Musanza Busanga Camp

(I think that the name you have given the camp is its name before it moved to Musanza.) Good setting for the camp. It is a comfortable but basic camp. Wonderful game viewing on the Busanga Plains including large herds of red lechwe, buffalo, puku, roan and sable.

We saw about 10 oribi and even saw a blue duiker on the drive to the camp!
