Kafue National Park Kafue National Park is one of the world's largest national parks and covers 22,400 square kilometers.The landscape changes from flat open grasslands to Miombo woodland and huge granite hills with the Kafue River winds its way through the park.
North Kafue The Busanga Plains is a highlight of the Kafue for the diversity and the quantity of its big game. This is good lion country and is Zambia's best area for cheetah and one of its best for wild dogs. We recommend - Shumba, Busanga, Leopard and Musekese camps which are only open in the dry season. South Kafue Kafue has an excellent range of antelope including large herds of red lechwe and puku . Leopard are very common throughout the main forested areas and regular sightings of spotted hyenas, cheetah and wild dog. We recomend - Mukambi, Ila Safari Lodge are central and further south are Kaingu, Mawimbi and Nanzhila in the deep south. The birding in Kafue is excellent with about 495 species recorded. On the river itself look out for the African finfoot, or a nesting colony of African skimmers. In the south, on the Nanzhila Plains, the black-cheeked lovebird (near-endemic) to southern Zambia - is relatively common .
