Covering an area of some 8,700 square miles, Kafue National Park is one of the largest National Parks in Africa. In the extreme north of the Kafue lie the Busanga Plains - one of Zambia’s most significant wetland resources and one of the few areas in the world that remain untouched by development and human activity.
The deep and clear Lunga River is the largest tributary of the Kafue River and flows north to south through a mosaic of miombo woodland, riverine woodland and grassy dambos in the north east of the Kafue National Park. Species like puku and impala are abundant while roan and Lichtenstein’s hartebeest occur in lower densities. Viewing of buffalo herd and elephant bulls is good and lion and leopard are regularly encountered.
