The Busanga Plains are in the mystical and vastly unchartered northern reaches of Kafue National Park in Zambia. Remote and isolated from the more accessible central and southern areas within the park, Busanga Plains is an exceptional and unforgettable destination; however, it is only open during the dry season of the year from June to October. A small window of opportunity for those seeking the exclusivity and majesty of this area that has become known as a kingdom of lions, where fertile grasslands and a network of vein-like channels sustain a wide population of wildlife.Enquire Now
Busanga Plains only has one or two safari camps open for operation in the dry season, so the experience for any guest lucky enough to visit seems entirely private. Once the wet season begins, the narrow channels flood and the grasslands disappear beneath the water, leaving only a few islands of dry land. Then, when the water recedes, come June, herds of puku and red lechwe gather to feast on the newly revealed grass. Rare birdlife, like wattled cranes are spotted in this secret paradise, and the lions famously leap over the residual waterways that meander through the grass. This is somewhere incredibly special!
