Day 2-5

The Busanga Experience

The Busanga Experience

Hidden away in northern Kafue National Park lies the Busanga Plains, a seasonal wetland ecosystem famed for its wide variety of antelope species and large prides of lion. For the next few days you'll experience what Busanga has to offer.

Look out for hefty pods of hippo hanging about in the channels, while lowering water levels will bring out wildebeest, zebra and buffalo. A stronghold of Africa’s largest cat, large lion prides thrive in game-rich Busanga. They share it with cheetah and African wild dog, which benefit from the wide, open territory. Serval and side-striped jackal are some of the smaller carnivores to look out for too.
For birders the endemic Chaplin’s barbet and endangered grey crowned and wattled cranes find sanctuary within the Busanga Plains, along with over 450 other bird species. The lesser kestrel and Montagu’s harrier are summer migrants, while Ross’s turaco and black-backed barbet are some of the area’s ‘specials’. Secretary birds are also abundant.
