The Busanga Plains are one of Zambia’s most significant wetland resources and one of the few areas in the world untouched by development and human activity. The plains are home to a wealth of game and therefore a big attraction to predators - including wild dog, cheetah and prides of lion.
The seasonal camp is designed to blend in with the environment and natural materials have been used as much as possible, to great effect. The six luxury rooms have spacious interiors with all the modern conveniences one could ever want or need. Tents and the main area are all shaded by a canopy of majestic fig trees, on raised wooden platforms to enhance the panoramic view across the plains. Gentle, muted colours of aqua and sand characterise the main area, comprising a lounge, dining area, camp fire and small pool under a shady tree.
The guides are famously knowledgeable and take guests on game drives in and around the plains; night drives offer the added excitement of the nocturnal wonders of the area. This camp is perfectly situated to see the antelope that make the Plains their home: lechwe, the ubiquitous puku, stately roan antelope, as well as the diminutive oribi. Herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo are all commonly seen, as well as smaller groups of Lichtenstein's hartebeest. This wealth of game is also a big attraction for predators, including wild dog, cheetah and prides of lion. A birder's special, the Böhm's Bee-eater, can be seen in the parking area of the camp!
