Kafue national park

“It’s not one of the crowded parks in Zambia so chances are good that you’re the only guest at your lodge or even in the park!” – Fabian, Jan ’17

When you can spend 10 days in a National Park with no 2 days being the same, you know you are in a special place. That’s what the Kafue can offer. It has INCREDIBLE ANIMAL AND BIRDLIFE DIVERSITY which stems ultimately from the tapestry of habitats that link together through the park. The Southern sector intersperses WIDE, EXPANSIVE PLAINS with stunning miombo woodlands and dambos and is home to impressive numbers of lion, cheetah and a variety of antelope, most notable sable, roan, reedbuck and eland. The central region is dominated by the stunning Kafue River and its beautiful riparian woodland and offers both RIVER AND LAND BASED SAFARI EXPERIENCES. Venture further north and you will start to get access to the Busanga Plains – another region known for great lion activity and stunning plains vistas.


Kafue Highlights

The Kafue River

Smaller than the Zambezi, the Kafue River has a definite aura of peace and tranquility emphasized by the large rock formations often seen along the river (particularly around the Kaingu region) and the stunning riparian woodland that lines the banks of the Kafue River

Kafue Highlights

Wilddog sightings

One of the rarest and most endangered African predator, the highly sociable African Wild Dog requires a huge amount of space and is constantly on the move. As a result, sightings are infrequent and should always be viewed as special.

Kafue Highlights


Viewing the fastest land mammal in the world is always a treat and the Kafue is probably the best place in Zambia to do so – particularly in the Southern and central regions.

Kafue Highlights

the Big 5

The Kafue offers consistent sightings of 4 members of the Big 5, namely lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo.

Kafue Highlights

Pel’s Fishing Owl

Always sought after by birders, the Pel’s Fishing Owl’s reclusive and nocturnal nature makes sightings tricky and infrequent. The slow flowing riverine habitat around the central Kafue is a prime habitat.

Black-Cheeked Lovebird
