Kafue, you BEAUTY

Views: 172 Visited: Aug 2017 Reviewed: Sep 23, 2018

Leaving Livingstone in the early morning the road to Kalomo isn't fantastic but it is short. Once you leave Kalomo the road winds through the hills past Bilili Hot Springs and many, many little villages and past local schools - a great experience of local Zambian life and culture.

At the Ndumdumwezi Gate there is the usual sing in and pay and for the first few kilometers the road was pretty good but it soon becomes more of a two track than ... read more

Remote wilderness to explore

Views: 304 Visited: Jun 2015 Reviewed: Jun 05, 2018

Kafue National Park in Zambia is one of the more remote and wild-feeling Southern African safari destinations. At 9,000 square miles, it’s Zambia’s biggest and oldest park. Kafue hosts the highest diversity of ungulate species in Africa including many rare antelopes such as sitatunga, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, defassa waterbuck, and yellow-backed duiker. The bird list, at nearly 500 species, will keep bird watchers endlessly entertained, whil... read more

Deliciously remote and untouched

Views: 421 Visited: Nov 2016 Reviewed: Jun 06, 2017

For a park that is only about a 5-6 hour drive away from a capital city, Kafue is wonderfully remote and isolated. It was great to have safari options here, too, such as walking, game drives and boating safaris. We would often do boating safaris in the evening so that we could also enjoy the sunset.
I stayed at Musekese and was impressed with Phil, Tyronne and Alec. All were gracious and knowledgeable. Hope to return again. read more

Around the corner - leopard

Kafue NP - the biggest national park in Africa - is still a hidden gem. It's easily reached from Lusaka via the Mongu - Lusaka - Road or from Livingstone via Kalomo / Namwala. We just returned from the central part of the park. We stayed at Kasabushi Camp on the banks of the Kafue River. Very clean camp, easy to find and very friendly camp staff and owners.
While out on game drive we spotted the usual game, like tsetse flies, impalas, pukus,.... read more

The greatest diversity of wildlife of any national park in Africa!!

Views: 874 Visited: Sep 2012 Reviewed: Feb 14, 2015

Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia's national parks and it still remains little-known and largely unexplored!! Kafue holds possibly the greatest diversity of wildlife of any national park in Africa, which makes this so exciting! Some animals you will see range from otters, water monitors, hippo, crocodiles, red lechwe and Cape buffalo. This is also an excellent fishing area for bream, pike and barbel and great for boatin... read more

Fantastic wildlife - in a wonderfully wild place

Views: 887 Visited: Oct 2013 Reviewed: Sep 05, 2013

THE KAFUE is home to possibly the greatest diversity of wildlife species of any African National Park. It's unique blend of environments that include Miombo (Brachystegia) woodland dotted with the remains of oxbow lagoons that provide lush grazing, permanent river systems and the jewel in her crown the vast open Busanga Plains. The Kafue is simply vast and with few safari camps the feeling of solitude and having the bush to your selves is comp... read more

No Disapointments At All

The second largest park in Africa, Kafue National park gets its name from the Kafue River, which flows through it in the north. Poaching and neglect had left this park devoid of any wildlife just plain lush grassland, its been almost a decade since the Zambian Wildlife Authority took over and began a long and tedious process of restoration.
I wanted to visit the area with the most game so I enquired before leaving the capital city of Zambia, ... read more
