“Speak to someone who has been there.” - Tony McKeith

Fantastic wildlife - in a wonderfully wild place

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 safari camps the feeling of solitude and having the bush to your selves is complete. It is quiet possible to see more than 40 different mammals and over 150 bird species (there are 495 recorded) in just a week in the Kafue.
With an especially high number of Antelope species (Sable , Roan, Lechwe, Reed buck, Deffassa Waterbuck to name just a few ) inhabiting all of the key eco systems there are also a high density of predators. Lions are a big feature of the Kafue as are Leopards but watch out for Serval, and African Wild Cat, Cheetah and may be even Caracal. Wild dogs are here and seen more often as seasons pass.

As the recognized experts on the Kafue and Zambia as a whole we are able to suggest safari that will enable you to get the very best for a safari to the Kafue.
