Busanga Safaris, Zambian experts

Written on: August 09, 2013   |   I visited in September 2011 We have now taken two safaris organised by Tony McKeith (and have booked a third) to Zambia. They have both been excellent covering South Luangwa and Kafue, two very different areas. We stayed in Kafunta Lodge (SL), very comfortable with great food and Tony organised our own jeep for four of us. Place crawls with leopards, saw 5 on our first evening drive! Kafue and the Busanga plains are totally different, very wild and the Plains camp wonderful on an open plain with game all round. Tony organises small groups at great prices with no single supplements. When planning our safaris we always think Busanga before anything else.

Booked a trip to Zambia last November and, after sending out a few emails to various tour operators using the Your African Safari Shaman feature, it was clear to me that Tony of Busanga was the one to go with.

I really wanted to see Kasanka and the bats but, at the time of booking, there were no tours to this park. As I was traveling solo, I needed to join other... read more

Just back from Botswana organised by Busanga Safaris (for the second time). Immense experience. Saw everything on my list and more, including wild dog, leopard, cheetah, lion, etc. The camps and guides were exceptional and all the transfers worked seemlessly. Unforgettable experience I can't wait for my next safari. Will definitely use Busanga again for the persona... read more

This was our second trip to Zambia arranged by Busanga Safaris, and once again it was excellent, we can definitely recommend them. The camps used were comfortable and friendly and close to the wildlife. read more

Tony McKeith of Busanga Safaris took care of organising my travel to Botswana and and a nine night mobile tented photographic safari with Letaka. Busanga were easy to deal with and very efficient. I am planning more safaris over the next couple of years at least and will be using them again.

All the arrangements worked perfectly and I was enormously impressed by... read more

I've just returned from an amazing month away travelling to Rwanda, Zambia and Zimbabwe organised by Tony McKeith of Busanga Safaris. I've travelled in Africa for many years with Tony and he always works hard to make sure I get exactly the experience I want and this epic trip totally surpassed expectations. Each lodge was perfect, and the wildlife out of this world... read more

We booked a trip to Zambia and had 7 nights in South Luangwa and 4 nights in Chongwe.Tony McKeith of Busanga safari made all the arrangements and it was an unforgettable trip for us.

Travelled to Kafue National Park, which I think is one of the best. Stayed at Mukesese camp that has a brilliant location - very rich in plentiful diverse wildlife. Superb guides. Great options of hide, vehicle, boat and by foot safaris. Element or remoteness very attractive. Loved the authenticity of a comfortable well managed safari camp.The wildlife is not on t... read more

Dear Tony and team,

Thank you so very much.
You managed to create the most incredible and wonderful honeymoon for us. Every stay and location was excellent although one stood out miles ahead from the rest. The Kitcheche Mara camp was simply superb. You will find our review on TripAdvisor linked to the Mara camp website. We had the experience of a life time that... read more

I first met Tony at a travel show last year. I had visited Africa several times as I am a keen wildlife photographer and discussed going to Zambia which I had not visited. We discussed my requirements and Tony sent me a few options. I contacted him again this year and visited Zambia in October. I visited two camps in Kafue and two in South Luangwa. All camps were g... read more

I went to Kenya last spring to volunteer in the Masaai Mara and got in touch with Tony to plan a few days safari at the end of my trip. His suggestions were wonderful and varied and all of the arrangements were expertly taken care of. I visited Lewa Conservancy which was a highlight of my trip and never would have known about it had Tony not suggested it. I sho... read more
