Full Kafue Experience - 8 Days

Full Kafue Experience

The Full Kafue Experience is a 7-night Safari package that includes 2 nights at Mukambi Safari Lodge, 2 nights at Fig Tree Bush Camp and 3 nights at Busanga Plains Camp. The Full Kafue Experience is the package if you want to explore the Northern  and Eastern Kafue which is rich in terms of wildlife.

Kafue National Park is a unique area. The enormous size (one of the biggest National Parks in Africa), the many different habitats and the huge variety of mammals and birds make it an area waiting to be explored. It is Zambia’s biggest and oldest National Park and is easily accessed from both Lusaka and Livingstone. But the best of all is the untouched wilderness that the park has to offer as mass tourism does not exist; leaving the park pure and unexplored. This is what a real safari should be like, excellent game viewing with a rich diversity of wildlife, stunning landscapes and unspoiled by mass tourism. Although the park has a lot to offer, relatively few people visit this Zambian treasure.

The Kafue is close to Lusaka and Livingstone; by approximately 3 to 4 hours driving many camps can be comfortably reached by good roads. With airstrips throughout the park, fly-in safaris are good options as well.

The Kafue National Park is named after the Kafue River that runs through the park for over 250 km. It enters the Park in the North East and forms Lake Itezhi-Tezhi South of the Park, a beautiful dam with big herds of wildlife roaming around on its shores. Other well known rivers in the Kafue are the Lunga and Lufupa River, which both feed into the Kafue River.

The rivers and lake dominate the landscape in the Northern and Eastern part of the Kafue National Park and the majority of the safari camps are located around them. Although the Kafue has many interesting areas, only the best known areas will be described.
