Kafue National Park in Zambia

This easily accessible park, located in the south of Zambia is one of the largest parks in Africa and the largest in Zambia. Kafue National Park is an undiscovered gem bisected by the beautiful Kafue River and is classic wildlife country.

The northern sector of the park including the Busanga plains, an area of Serengeti type grasslands and Okavango type wetlands has a mixture of luxury lodges and reasonably priced owner run bush camps. The small number of lodges located in this huge game reserve mean that you will see few if any other vehicles on your game drives.

The Southern Kafue has some riverside lodges as well as a camp in the fascinating Lake Itezi Tezhi region and a lodge on the Nanzhila Plains in the extreme south.

DRY SEASON

From May you’ll experience clear sunny days but temperatures can still be cooler in the evening. Game viewing is good.

Moving into August the days are warmer and the bush has dried out, meaning the game viewing is now excellent and becomes outstanding right through to November!

green SEASON

First rainfall is normally expected in November, still hot and now humid with continued great game viewing.

December see the first thunderstorms with short showers followed by sunny periods and good game viewing.

SHOULDER SEASON

Regular rain fall continues in January making the bush now green and the grass long. Animals are more dispersed and harder to locate.

Many camps close in January through to March as the bush is now dense. It rains less often in April and by May clear blue skies herald the beginning of the dry season, days are sunny and the bush is starting to dry out, call us for early season bargains.
