Welcome to Zambia! Upon arrival at Lusaka International Airport, you will be met by your guide and transferred to KaingU Safari Lodge in Kafue National Park where you will stay for the first three nights of your tour. The journey will take 4-5 hours. Situated on the Kafue River, the 6 safari tents at the lodge all enjoy fabulous views from their private decks. This owner run lodge offers game drives, walking safaris, canoe safaris, boat cruises, catch and release fishing, as well as cultural experiences where you can visit local villages and schools.
You next destination in Kafue is Ila Safari Lodge, where you will stay for the next three nights. Ahead of its time, this eco conscious solar powered lodge is built using sandbags and offers sustainable activities in their near-silent electric game viewing vehicle and electric river boat. This riverside lodge has exquisite views over the Kafue River which attracts many wild visitors you can admire from the infinity pool.
Up next you will head to Musekese, your home for the next four nights. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the lodge surrounds and embark on your game viewing activities with some of the best guides in Zambia to spot elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and more. The owners of Musekese are not just lodge owners but are committed to anti-poaching in the park by setting up camps in high risk areas as a poacher deterrent and working with African Parks and Lion Recovery Fund to help build their anti-poaching unit teams.
Today you will make your way north to the unique and beautiful Busanga Plains area of Kafue. Your home for the last four nights of tour will be Chisa Busanga Camp. A spot to remember, Chisa houses you in their exclusive ‘bird-nests’. Designed to imitate a weaver nest, these nests are raised up into the tree canopy and have an open front offering killer views and a gentle breeze off the African landscape. The vast floodplains are a hive of activity with incredible wildlife and birdlife – you will never forget the sight of your first sunset in this extraordinary environment.
Departure Day. End of your tour! Your guide from Chisa Busanga will transfer you to Busanga airstrip for your flight to Lusaka for your onward journey.
