Zambia's oldest National Park and also the largest (incidentally the second largest National Park in the world), Kafue National Park was proclaimed in 1950 and covers in the region of 22 400 square kilometres. From the astounding Busanga Plains in the North-western section of the Kafue to the tree-choked wilderness and the lush dambos of the south. This is one destination that is a must when visiting Zambia.
This park sustains huge herds of diverse wildlife. Large prides of lions, solitary leopards and cheetahs are the prime predators. There is a host of smaller carnivores from the side-striped jackal, civet, genet and various mongoose.
Access to most (if not all the lodges in the Kafue) is by light aircraft, this just goes to show how large and remote this Kafue actually is, these are included as part and parcel of the safari package when booking.
The handful of Lodges that we offer guarantees you an exclusive wildlife experience like no other, if the sense of complete and utter remoteness is what you seek, then Kafue is the destination.
