Wilderness Busanga Bush Camp

Busanga Bush Camp is as remote as it gets on safari. Open for only five months a year, it reveals magical wild moments. Wake up early to watch the sun rise through the mist, behind grazing herds of puku and red lechwe. Crowned cranes pick their way through the drying grass as you nurse a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee, imagining the wonders that await on your game drive.


Wilderness Busanga Bush Camp Zambia Impact Purpose

Reason for being (in Busanga)

Busanga Plains teems with charismatic wildlife. And for more than half a year, we don't get to see it. Yet it thrives silently in the background. Our presence is critical for the protection of this fragile ecosystem, through the support of anti-poaching activities and creating employment.






Busanga Bush Camp experiences

Every day out in the plains with one of our experienced guides brings a different adventure. Lions, buffalos, cheetahs, elephant, and sable and roan antelope are regularly sighted. Out on a swamp boat safari, watch for storks, wattled cranes and naturally, hippos. Evenings are taken up with fireside tales, mouth-watering cuisine and fine wines under a canopy of stars.
