The Kafue National Park is Zambia's biggest and the world's second largest. Situated in the centre western region of the country, it is known for its enormous herds of rare antelope and an abundance of predators, especially lion and leopard.
Day 1 - 3 : Nanzhila Plains Camp
The Classic Kafue package begins in Livingstone with a 3 hour road transfer from the airport to Dundumwezi Gate where you will be met by the Nanzhila Plains safari team. Nanzhila Plains Camp is the closest big game safari camp to Livingstone and Victoria Falls which retains a wonderful sense of wilderness and isolation.
Enjoy a game drive into camp and settle into the beautiful rooms with views over the dambo to enjoy a 3 night stay. Nanzhila is the closest true safari destination in Zambia to the Victoria Falls and enjoys nearly 3000sqkm to itself. An incredible variety of wildlife and birding species as well as a quite magnificent location overlooking the dambo make Nanzhila one of the most memorable safari camps in Zambia. As you are entitled to both morning and evening game drives you will have exciting animal views.
Day 4 - 6: Kaingu River Lodge
After a hearty breakfast, we will head out over the plains and through the Ngoma Forest towards Lake Itezhi-tezhi (there is also the option of stopping to visit the Elephant Orphanage) before arriving at the ITT shoreline. Stopping at an appropriate shady spot, we will enjoy a picnic lunch watching the antics of the wildlife around the lake before meeting the team from Kaingu. Kaingu is magnificently situated in the riparian woodland on the banks of the Kafue River with stunning views.
African finfoot, hippo and a wide variety of birdlife are on constant display and while at Kaingu you will take part in some river based boat cruises and canoeing. Kaingu also conducts morning and evening game drives in a stunning section of the Kafue National Park.
