Wilderness Safaris’ Shumba and Busanga Bush Camp in Zambia’s Busanga Plains are now open until the end of October.

Situated within 28 000 hectares of exclusive wilderness, both camps offer a diverse experience in Kafue National Park. Busanga Bush Camp is a safari camp with four well-appointed tents, while Shumba offers six spacious and luxurious safari tents (including one family tent) on raised platforms.

A range of activities include game drives led by Wilderness Safaris guides, and boating. Busanga’s hot-air balloon season begins on August 1 and is offered until the Kafue season ends on October 31. The one-hour trip is followed by a champagne breakfast served in the park’s vast grasslands.  

“Busanga Plains is a remarkable wilderness area to visit – your eyes will dart from elephant herd, to buffalo, to kudu, puku, lechwe, zebra, sable and eland… and the list goes on. Birdlife is abundant, with over 500 species recorded throughout the park, ranging from raptors to the smaller, almost ghost-like ground species,” said Ron Goatley, Wilderness Safaris Zambezi MD.

Every guest visiting the Busanga Plains also becomes a conservationist, helping Wilderness Safaris contribute more than $500 000 to Kafue National Park every year.

Shumba and Busanga Bush Camp are only open during the five dry months of the year.
