“Kafue leopards were in great evidence this August; five separate sightings, all at different times of the day and night, and in different places.” - Lucy Gamoosa

Kafue safari: An amazing holiday!

Views: 246 Visited: Sep 2018 Reviewed: Aug 22, 2018

I have just returned from a 10 night safari in Zambia and what a time I had! The holiday was meticulously organised by Tony from Busanga Safaris; I knew I was in good hands from the first moment I corresponded with him. After a couple of emails I rang Tony so he could get a really good idea of what I really wanted (within reason!) on my holiday in Africa, and also what I wasn't so keen on (single supplements, six Land Cruisers around one lion...). As I made my enquiry quite late in the year I was probably not in a good position to get a perfect fit, however the resulting 9 nights in the Kafue more than met my expectations.

Everything went like clockwork with transfers and for the majority of my trip I felt like the queen, having a plane to myself (no other passengers were scheduled, I'm not actually the queen...) to the Kafue and then remaining the sole passenger for the car and boat transfers to Musekese Camp. I never had to worry about any aspect of my trip, and it was really handy to have the travel app from Tony to refer to my itinerary on my phone.

The Kafue itself was incredible, and Musekese Camp and Ntemwa-Busanga Camp are both very special places. I enjoyed the most beautiful views, fantastic food, great hosting and exceptional guiding. I had so many memorable wildlife experiences, whether on foot, on a boat or in a car it would be hard to list them all. Here are my top 5: Seeing wild dogs for the very first time; seeing a leopard on a walking safari; elephants making a huge hullabaloo eating their breakfast right next to my tent; seeing a leopard slink right up to the car and give it a good sniff on a night drive; a couple of elephants sauntering by the dinner table as we guests were sitting by the fire enjoying aperitifs... magic!

I recommend Busanga Safaris unreservedly and I plan to book more safaris from them in the future.
