Fig Tree Bush Camp
In June 2015 Mukambi Safaris has opened a new luxury bush camp in an undiscovered part of Kafue National Park
It is named after the giant fig tree next to the boma (central area) overlooking a unique sandy lagoon. This lagoon maintains it’s alluring water throughout the season attracting an array of wildlife including elephant, puku, impala, warthog, zebra, and hartebeest. Predators like lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena are regular visitors and the wild dog have been known to prey on the concentration of game.
The camp has tented accommodation on 3 meter high platforms above the ground, giving a spectacular view of the plains and the lagoon where various animals come to drink.
The beautiful location in combination with spectacular accommodation and the variety of wildlife are the main attractions – not to mention the remoteness of the Camp and as always the good food.
Fig Tree Safari Tents
Fig Tree Bush Camp has tented accommodation on 3-meter platforms above the ground, giving a spectacular view over the lagoon and the plains towards the entrance of the camp.
We have 4 en-suite luxury safari tents on stilts (2 twin and 2 double)
Guests will stay in one of our 4 furnished safari tents raised on 3m high platforms. Each tent overlooks the lagoon but also has a private view of the plains behind the camp offering unique opportunities to spot game. Each safari tent has an en-suite bathroom and veranda presenting a unique view from the tree canopy. Guests will then come together underneath the Fig Tree, from which the camp is named, to savour the serenity of the lagoon as well as delicious food and wine.

Food & drinks
Fig Tree Bush Camp offers superb food and after a three-course supper guests will sit around a campfire, feet in the sand, gazing at the stars and listening to the sounds of the African Bush.
We do game drives twice a day. One departs at sunrise and the afternoon drive (partly a night drive) leaves at approximately 2 hours before sunset. Drives are 3.5 to 4 hours long. Our vehicles are located in the park, which is a short boat trip across the Kafue River so game drives depart from within the park daily.
Walks leave around an hour after sunrise to avoid the heat of the day. The walks take place in the Kafue National Park itself and are approximately 3 hours (unfortunately not available due to the wet conditions from approximately Dec to May).
