Authentic bush camp style suites
The camp itself is very comfortable while rustic in style, with wooden beds and locally crafted furniture. Open-air bathrooms come with traditional wood-warmed bucket showers, combining style with practicality. With nothing between you and the bush besides the canvas of your tent, it conjures up a true safari atmosphere, placing the call of the wild and ecologically sound practices above unnecessary extravagances. The only sounds you will hear are the snorting of hippo, the laughing of hyena, and the guttural roaring of lions on the plains that bring the night to life.
An inviting communal atmosphere
The main lounge area is under a cool, large grass thatch roof, providing shade in the heat of the day, where you can relax with a book from the library or an ice cold drink. Dining is typically outside under the stars where you can enjoy quality cuisine you wouldn’t think feasible at a camp such as this. You’ll relax each evening around the campfires, swapping stories of the day’s events in great company and enjoying a nice cold beer or sit back and listen to tales from the bush from the camp’s larger than life owners.
Exhilarating safari activities led by the owners
Phil Jeffrey and Tyrone McKeith run the camp with an incredible sense of fun and good humour. They take on most of the guiding duties themselves, so you can be sure you are in expert hands when out exploring. Exciting game drives give you the best opportunity to get close to big game, although walking is a real focus and an ideal way to truly appreciate all the area has to offer, concentrating on the smaller flora and fauna. There are purpose-built hides strategically positioned in game-rich areas, where you can while away a few hours, letting the animals come to you. You can also enjoy relaxing cruises on the Kafue and Lufupa rivers, and you may even indulge in a bit of fishing should you wish.
A diverse array of wildlife in Kafue
The wildlife is more diverse than any other park in Africa. Along with several safari favourites such as lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and even cheetah, there are a wide range of the less common antelope species including oribi, Blue Wildebeest, Lichtenstein's Hartebeest, roan, sitatunga, puku, Red Lechwe, sable, and eland. Other diverse and unusual species include pangolin, bushpig, side-striped jackal, honey badger and numerous mongoose species. There are almost 500 avian species, a true delight for the avid birder.
