Our camps are situated in two of the most pristine wildlife parks in Zambia. The Lower Zambezi National Park is simply stunning. The aesthetics are in part from the 120km of Zambezi River front, the concentration of game along the valley floor and the backdrop of the magnificent Zambezi Escarpment. The range of activities from your doorstep is another standout feature of the Lower Zambezi and Kutali & Chula are located to make the most of this aspect and to compliment each other.
The Kafue is one of the largest tracts of unfenced wilderness in the world. From vast plains to never-ending Miombo woodland, from broad, slow-moving rivers to adrenaline-packed white water rapids there is so much to see and explore. Musekese Camp and Ntemwa-Busanga offer the very best Kafue safari experience.
One of the best aspects of our safaris is the variety of activities on offer; whether it’s a love of birds, water, big game or just wanting to feel a little closer to the bush, we’re here to help you plan your safari, make it your trip and your memories. With the most experienced guiding team in Zambia, all under the guidance of Africa-renowned guide trainer Kyle Branch, the guiding expertise and emphasis is something we are very proud of and one that adds a huge ‘x’ factor to make your safari especially memorable
A three-hour game drive to the north-west of Musekese Camp lies Ntemwa-Busanga Camp. Four (5 in 2024!) classic thatched chalets are situated in a wilderness area on the southern edge of Busanga Plains. This simple but charming camp is perfectly sited to make the most of the diverse Busanga Plains. Explore its multitude of habitats, from riverine thickets in the south to tree-lined edges and the productive, flooded grasslands found in the center and the variety of wildlife that inhabit them.
Across all of our camps we have a road network designed to maximize game viewing opportunities for wildlife big and small. Zambia’s parks are blessed with low visitor numbers, as such we never have too many vehicles at sightings, and most times none at all. After stopping for ‘sundowners’ our spotters seek out nocturnal wildlife using a spotlight on night game drives. Nocturnal creatures such as genets, civets, hyena, owls, honey badger and even aardvark to name a few can be seen, with the perfect balance of luck and guiding skill.
This is a quintessentially Zambezian pursuit! A must-do activity for our guests staying at either Chula Island or Kutali. Low angle, silent drifting, tranquility are all words to describe a canoe safari – our expert guides offer a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. Canoe safaris are also a new addition to the activity offering at Musekese in the Kafue and only available in May and June (dependent on water levels seasonally in the Eden Lagoon).
Boating is arguably one of the finest ways in which to experience both the Kafue and the Zambezi Rivers. A boat safari never fails to impress, highlighting crystal-clear perennial waters drawing in boundless wildlife and a stunning array of birds. From Musekese Camp in the dry-season months a boat safari is a hugely rewarding game viewing experience, with swimming elephants and drinking leopards. On the Zambezi, the density of hippo and crocodiles with the background of the escarpment is genuinely spectacular.
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 more gentle amble through the bush. This allows you to experience the smaller, more intricate things that might be missed from a vehicle. Our guides are highly trained and qualified with guest safety and enjoyment at the forefront of each walk.
