Lake Camp Predator Season is OPEN!

The Southern Kafue has REVEALED an astonishing secret. Unbeknownst to many, a variety of antelope species have been gathering in their HUNDREDS on a daily basis to make the most of a very seasonal feeding bonanza. 

 With the Musa River and the headwaters of Lake Itezhi-tezhi in the far western sectors of the lake having receded through the season, it has left behind nutrient rich and highly fertile shorelands which, when combined with the sunny days and the first rains, produces new grass growth of the highest quality. The antelope know this and gather in huge numbers.

They are followed by arguably Zambia’s greatest density of all the apex predators in one area – namely, lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog. Although we see these predators through the year, they really move in for the months of October, November and December.  

Nanzhila Lake Camp is located right in the middle of this incredible wildlife gathering. In our first spring of operation (2021), we weren’t sure if it was just a once off event. Then last year it happened again. Now in 2023, the numbers just seem to be growing aided no doubt by the extra protection Kafue is getting from African Parks.

Just look at the sightings recorded in THE LAST TEN DAYS and then come
and experience for yourself.
