“Watching a lion chase and kill a waterbuck then drag it into bushes devour it over a couple of days then lie with a bloated stomach replete and exhausted.” - Fergusson.elizabeth@gmail.com

Outstanding safari to the Kafue: undoubtedly a five star experience

Tony McKeith, who runs Busanga Safaris, is a marvel! I was struggling to arrange a very special Golden Wedding Anniversary holiday for my family of eleven, aged from seven to seventy seven. He quickly grasped what I was trying to achieve, was mindful of our budget and sensitive to all my aims and concerns.

The result was a safari which was voted "Best holiday of our lives"by each and everyone of us. From the smooth journey via Emirates to Lusaka and a night at the Pioneer Camp, we travelled seamlessly to the Kafue National Park. Both the Kaingu Lodge and the Musakese Bush camp were perfect. They each offered the warmest of welcomes, high standard accommodation and haute cuisine in most beautiful surroundings.

Kaingu Lodge was notable for its exquisite and artistic presentation of every detail. It also laid on child specific activities such as making and using bows, arrows and fishing rods and gave us an evening when the staff demonstrated their traditional music and dancing inviting us to join in.

At Musukese, the professional and immensely knowledgable standard of guiding was in a league we had never met before either in Zambia or any other African country. Thanks to their skilled tracking we had constant sightings from a lion killing a waterbuck to leopards stalking within the camp. Whether on foot, in jeeps or by boat on the river they kept us fascinated from the youngest child to the experienced zoologist. What an achievement!

We cannot recommend Busanga Safaris highly enough.
