Busanga Bush Camp
The vast, meadow-like Busanga Plains extends in all directions around the camp, offering a remarkable sense of freedom and possibility. The plains teem with birds, and grazing antelope – while misty mornings and evenings, are illuminated by unique pink sunrises and dusks.
With just four well-appointed tents, this dry season-only camp captures the authentic spirit of safari style, and warm Zambian hospitality. The spectacular views from the camp itself, and the wildlife encounters during day and night game drives, affords guests to become acquainted with the plains. Listen for the iconic cry of the fish-eagle, the soundtrack of Busanga.
INSIDER'S TIP: Special sightings to look for include lion, cheetah, roan antelope, and puku to name a few. For those interested in birding, this includes the range restricted Fülleborn's Longclaw.
There are four twin bedded tents. The beds can be moved together to make a double bed.

Interpretive game drives in open 4×4 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.
Led by a highly trained and knowledgeable guide, take in the clear night skies – and the night creatures – on a night drive. Glimpse into Busanga Plains’ unique, nocturnal world – a diverse range of species may be seen including genet, civet, owls, and occasionally the beguiling leopard.
Float through the channels at the beginning of the season when the floodplains are still filled with water.Specially-adapted motorboats can be used in very low water levels allowing for excellent birding opportunities and viewing of hippo, lechwe and puku. * Water levels permitting and mostly at the beginning of the season.
Delight in birding as rosy-throated longclaws, and grey crowned cranes are usually commonplace sightings on drives.
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.
