Incredible experience

Written on: August 14, 2013   |   I visited in August 2011 After a lot of discussion with my 3 kids (15, 17 & 20) we decided to go on our first family safari. Luckily I contacted Busanga Safaris and asked Tony his advice. Next thing you know we were off to Zambia. I have to say it was a holiday of a lifetime and Tony and his team did an amazing job. It couldn't have been a better safari with superb accommodation and food, and he even managed to lay on the wildlife. Thanks to the guides we got to see wildlife scenes and scenery that were better than the brochures. The close up action of the lion kill being stolen and decimated by the hyenas was enthralling; the hippos jumping 20 feet into the river was incredible; the lion pride and buffalo stampeding took our breaths away. We seem to see every bit of wildlife that Zambia had on offer and we would all go back at the first opportunity.

We asked Tony Mckeith from Busanga Safaris to give us a"bare bones" itinerary for 3 weeks in Namibia, in a vehicle, just us, with a guide! The result looked amazing, covering all the things we wanted to see; Kolmanskop, the deserted diamond town; Soossusvlei Dunes; Damaraland, in the stunning mountains; then of course Etosha for the wildlife and the Africat Founda... read more

My life-long dream was to visit Kenya and the Masai Mara, when I did do the trip I loved it. When I discovered Busanga Safaris and Tony himself i realised there was more to Africa than Kenya. I have had many exciting visits to Zimbabwe, Zambia Tanzania and Botswana. Along the way I have seen some great wildlife sights and stayed in all kinds of camps. I have bee... read more

I booked my safari through Busanga Safaris. It was specifically a photographic safari with wildlife photographer Tom Way and Tyrone McKeith of Jeffery & McKeith Safaris.

We spent four nights at their Musakese base and four at the Ntemwa-Busanga Camp. Tyrone took us to many locations with a wide range of wildlife and was hugely generous in sharing his knowledge o... read more

I have been to Africa three times - Kenya, Zambia and Tanzania. Each time I went with Busanga Safaris and I would definitely use them again. Each experience was amazing in its own right. In Kenya we visited the Maasai Mara, in Zambia South Luanga and Kafue and in Tanzania, Namiri Plains, The Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. In each location the accommodation wa... read more

We travelled with Tony McKeith of Busanga Safaris as group leader on a mobile camping trip in Northern Botswana that took in Savuti, Khwai and Moremi.

Our tents were "no frills" and comfortable and we were very well-looked after by an enthusiastic, friendly camp team who did an amazing job of providing a delicious and different meal for lunch and dinner every d... read more

What a great time I had with Busanga Safaris. Tony organised and Phil and Tyrone took over on the ground. They were amazing with organisation of the day to day safaris. I had a wonderful time and didn't want to come home. The information and guided adventures was very informative.
I now can't wait to go out there again....
See you soon ..Tim Clarke read more

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
