Around the corner - leopard

Written on: November 18, 2015   |   I visited in November 2015 Kafue NP - the biggest national park in Africa - is still a hidden gem. It's easily reached from Lusaka via the Mongu - Lusaka - Road or from Livingstone via Kalomo / Namwala. We just returned from the central part of the park. We stayed at Kasabushi Camp on the banks of the Kafue River. Very clean camp, easy to find and very friendly camp staff and owners.
While out on game drive we spotted the usual game, like tsetse flies, impalas, pukus,...
We followed a side track with not many highlights but when returning to the main road. Click, Click, Click. Leopard. Just on the road. Relaxed. A youngster. Moments later the female crossed the road. The 2 were posing for some time before strolling down to the river for a drink.

THE KAFUE is home to possibly the greatest diversity of wildlife species of any African National Park. It's unique blend of environments that include Miombo (Brachystegia) woodland dotted with the remains of oxbow lagoons that provide lush grazing, permanent river systems and the jewel in her crown the vast open Busanga Plains. The Kafue is simply vast and with few... read more

The second largest park in Africa, Kafue National park gets its name from the Kafue River, which flows through it in the north. Poaching and neglect had left this park devoid of any wildlife just plain lush grassland, its been almost a decade since the Zambian Wildlife Authority took over and began a long and tedious process of restoration.
