Busanga Bush Camp Main Area Dusk, Kafue National Park, Zambia

Busanga Bush Camp


Below is some of the wonderful accommodation to include on your journey.

KaingU Lodge £££££

  • Zambia
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Positioned on the beautiful slow-moving Kafue River, KaingU Lodge is situated on the eastern edge of Kafue National Park. Traditionally styled, this small camp centres on a thatched boma. Beside this, a redwood deck looks out over the river, shaded by overhanging trees. At night a stone fire pit warms the deck, which is the perfect place for dining, sipping sundowners or simply relaxing. Six Meru-style thatched chalets, with canvas walls, dot the surrounding area. All feature en-suite facilities, as well as stone-built outside showers that face the waters of the Kafue River. The tented chalets sit on raised private decks and are lit by solar-powered lights.

Shumba Camp £££££

  • Zambia
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Shumba Camp sits at the heart of the Busanga Plains – an area rich in plains game. This beautiful camp stands upon a slightly raised island, encircled by fertile grasslands. A canopy of fig trees shades the tents, with the camp afforded stunning vistas of the surrounding landscape. The camp contains just six luxurious safari tents, each one raised on wooden stilts and featuring a private veranda. The camp centres on an elegant central building, incorporating immaculate wooden decking, comfortable recessed seating and a dramatically positioned plunge pool. Inside the tents, the furnishings incorporate a rustic safari feel. Comfortable sofas are positioned to face the plains, whilst four-poster beds sit upon the smooth wooden floors. All tents feature en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, with hot-water bottles provided on cooler nights.

Konkamoya Lodge £££££

  • Zambia
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Konkamoya Lodge lies on the southern shores of Lake Itezhi-Tezhi, positioned on a quiet promontory that juts out into the lake’s calm waters. Looking out towards the sunrise, the camp blends into a patchy sea of mahogany and ebony trees, dotted with ancient baobabs and African spear plants. Accommodation consists of five large tents, all raised on wooden platforms and facing the lake. Constructed from cool green canvas, the tents feature a bedroom, sitting room area and en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water. The central area of Konkamoya focusses on a pair of large Zambian lapas. These traditional structures are built as communal meeting places. Open sided, they allow views of the star-studded night sky and are warmed by a wood fire.
