The prize of the Kafue!Words are never enough to convey the true magic of places such as Nanzhila Plains. Some of the highlights included sighting 7 lion cubs, 2 honey badgers, a Serval, hyena and a porcupine.”

From the moment we arrived at camp we felt very much at home. We enjoyed fun nights around the fire, exceptional meals & so many lion sightings! We loved our stay here & hope to return again in the near future.”
