Get remote in Zambia. Visit the lesser known parks of Zambia to discover the true Africa and immerse yourself in the wild bush. This itinerary is great for adventure travelers, who desire the true safari experience.
Musekese Camp’s location lends itself to a wide variety of activities, more often than not dictated by the happenings in the night! A pre-dawn wake-up call and light breakfast precedes the morning’s activities. Whether you’d like to stretch the legs, head out in the vehicles, be on the water or simply watch the wildlife go by from the comfort of camp.
Walking is best in the morning when temperatures are cool and tracks and signs are fresh! Walks are tailored to suit, but are typically a gentle amble through the bush. This allows you to experience the smaller, more intricate things that might be missed from a vehicle.
Game drives are a sure bet for wildlife photographers allowing you to get closer and cover greater distances. Musekese Camp has a modest road network designed by us to maximize game viewing opportunities whilst also preserving the different habitats and leaving great expanses for walking.
Boating is arguably one of the finest ways in which to experience the Kafue National Park; little is known about the Kafue River by first time visitors, but it never fails to impress, with its crystal clear perennial waters drawing in boundless wildlife and a stunning array of birds. The low angle on the water pitched against the steep, evergreen banks is a photographers dream. Our flat-bottomed boats are the perfect platform.
This is not to say you won’t encounter the big stuff! In the company of a professional guide, this can be the most fascinating and exhilarating way to experience wildlife. Walks are always accompanied with an escort scout from the Department of National Parks and Wildlife. Zambia has the best safety record in the region and this is a tried and tested system.
The wildlife of the Busanga Plains is as varied as it is numerous. Regional specials such as roan antelope and sable antelope are common sightings here. Along with thousands of red lechwe there is no shortage of game to view and photograph. Busanga Plains is also home to some of the largest herds of buffalo in the park, with numbers over 600, a sight to behold. The Southern Plains areas are home to wildebeest and zebra, along with herds of the diminutive oribi and secretive reedbuck.
Ofcourse the predators are here too, with a dominant lion pride, the ‘Papyrus Pride’ resident to the wetter plains in the north and both the Moshi and Lufupa prides utilising the areas to the north and south of Ntemwa-Busanga camp. Leopard are here too, especially along the treeline of the plains, the same area that offers cheetah sightings from time to time and late season wild dog sightings.
And if you thought it couldn’t get any wilder, think again…
.Ntemwa-Busanga Plains Camp has access to a vast road network covering the expanse of the Busanga Plains and southern treelines. Zambia is one of few places where night drives are permitted and all our vehicles are equipped with spotlights and red-filters. Perfect to spot nocturnal animals!
