Kafue National Park - Kafue Safari Lodge
Mukambi Safari Lodge is located centrally in Kafue National Park. Kafue National Park is a truly wonderful place. It is the second largest national park in the world, and still one of the most wildest,….yet to be (re)discovered.
Kafue used to be one of the most famous national parks back in the early days of safaris, up until the 1980’s. Since 2000, after 2 decades of neglect and poaching, it has steadily regained its former reputation, and rightfully so.
10 years later, after a lot of hard work, the introduction of low impact tourism and a close corporation with the Zambia Wildlife Authority, Kafue national park has truly revived and transformed into one of the most beautiful parks, teeming with wildlife.
Wildlife Kafue National Park
The breeding herds of elephant have settled down and the large predators are back in numbers. Among them several prides of lion, cheetah and leopard. Also packs of the endangered wild dog regularly pay a visit. Other animals that you are likely to encounter are buffalo, zebra, hippo and various antelope species like impala, puku, sable, hartebeest, bushbuck, roan and waterbuck.
Birds Kafue National Park
The diversity of habitat makes Kafue National Park also one of the best locations in Africa for birding. The Kafue River, wetlands, savannah and woodland boast an impressive 478 of Zambia's 733-recorded bird species. Among them African Wattled and Crowned Crane, Fish Eagle, Woolly-Necked Stork, Saddle Billed Stork, Goliath Heron, Ground Hornbill, African Fin Foot, Pel's Owl, Purple-Crested Lourie and Chaplin’s Barbet amongst others.

Wildlife Busanga Plains
Most of them are found on the Busanga Plains in the north of the park, and close to our Busanga Bush Camp . Busanga is a flood plain dotted with small and big islands overgrown with huge palm trees. When the water levels finally drop after the rainy season, Busanga Plains is accessible for three to four months a year.
It is a truly spectacular and untouched place. Large pods of hippo live in the rivers and pools. Big heard of wildebeest, lechwe and buffalo roam the plains. They are preyed upon by lion, leopard and cheetah.
