Busanga Plains Camp

Collide with nature on the Busanga Plains, one of the last truly unspoilt havens for wilderness in the world.Situated in the North of the Kafue National Park, the Camp is an exhilarating 6 hour drive from Mukambi Lodge, through the National Park. The Camp is seasonal due to the fact that it is in the flood plains, attracting animals all year round. To access the Camp, you will have to walk the last 100m on foot, crossing over a foot bridge to bypass a permanent water body.The Plains camp features four luxurious tents nestled amongst the trees on one of many islands, providing ideal privacy. The dining area and extended walkway offer a majestic view of the remarkable “Two Fig” on the bordering island, while a campfire extends warmth in the chilled nights after supper and fresh mornings to watch the sunrise as the herds of lechwe graze. Enjoy a warm atmosphere in the dining area during meal times, with food and service fit for kings.Spend your daylight hours with our exceptional guides while they lead you through the plains in search of all there is to see, including lion, cheetah, elephant, hippo, zebra, roan, sable, wildebeest, hartbeest, eland, buffalo, puku and an utterly endless array of birdlife and vegetation. Spend sundowners at one of several ideal locations and take in all the splendour of the Plains before dusk.The Busanga Plains Camp offers the perfect balance between relaxation and excitement, and the staff are all on-site to make your stay as welcoming and enjoyable as possible. This is a true release from the ‘hustle-and-bustle’ of everyday life, and The Plains Camp allows you to thrive in the absence of civilisation in a way that can’t be experienced anywhere else in the world.
