Busanga Bush Camp is a hidden gem tucked away on an island of sycamore fig trees and date palms. The camp is in the heart of the Busanga Plains in the Kafue National Park, with some of the most magnificent views of both sunrises and sunsets you will experience. The camp itself is small and remote, the rustic yet elegant feel offers a true safari experience to all guests.

Compared to the rest of Zambia this area is different compared to the usual bush landscape. The Busanga Plains is one of the most substantial wetland resources in Zambia. When the plains flood, the area becomes unreachable and therefore the camp is only open between June – October. However, when the floodplains do dry out, watch as the areas become abundant with wildlife coming in from surrounding woodlands. Although the wildlife is limited compared to the North, due to its remote location you enjoy that all important intimacy with the bush and feel like you are the only ones around, which we think is a bonus when heading out on safari.
The activities at Busanga Bush Camp are led by highly qualified guides who have excellent and extensive knowledge about the bush. Other than the usual day and evening game drives you can enjoy hot air balloon flights over the vast plains, which allow guests to view what the area has to offer from the skies. It is truly magical and a must if you have never had the chance to enjoy such a thrilling and stunning experience. Half the cost of the hot air balloon flight goes towards conservation and protecting the wildlife in the area. Even more exciting; if you stay 3 nights or more between Aug-Oct this is a complimentary activity.
With only 4 chalets at the camp this little slice of heaven is intimate and offers a very personable experience. The chalets decor is simple and keeps in line with the bush feel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with open air bathrooms. You get a full sense of being out in the African Bush when staying here, and we think sometimes that is exactly what you need, to feel at one with nature. Although not high-end luxury you can relax in comfort and enjoy the gorgeous views onto the plains.
