Upon arrival at Lusaka International Airport you will be met by our representative and assisted with your baggage after the immigration and customs procedures. You will then be introduced to your driver who will transfer you to Musekese Camp. This transfer will take 5 hours.
Day 1 – 4
Musekese Camp is set close to the Kafue River in the central part of the Northern sector of the Park. Greeted by the owners, Tyrone McKeith and Phil Jeffery, you’ll be treated to an experience you’ll never forget, while gaining new bush knowledge you can’t help but feel the infectious passion that your hosts have for the Kafue National Park.
Musekese Camp epitomizes what traditional Zambian safaris are all about. Activities are split between walking, boating and driving, there is also a hide on the opposite bank of the river overlooking a flooded dambo area which provides wonderful opportunities for those guests keen on photography.
On the fourth day, you will be driven further north and onto the Busanga Plains where you will be delivered to Wilderness Safaris’ Busanga Bush Camp.
Day 4 – 7
Busanga Bush Camp
The drive from Musekese to Busanga Bush Camp will take 3 – 4 hours depending on what you might see on the way. Located in the heart of the Busanga, established on a palm island in the northern part of the Plains you‘ll find this lovely bush-camp. The camp was originally sited here in the 90’s and has changed relatively little since. There are 4 standard high roofed tents each with unspoilt views of the plains surrounding the camp.
The game is very interesting up here in the northern part of the Kafue, it is one of the very few places where you might spot cheetah in Zambia! The Busanga pride of lions also spend much of their time close to camp.
Day 7 – 11
On the 7th morning of your trip, you’ll be transferred to Busanga Airstrip to catch your shuttle flight to Lusaka, this flight will take just over an hour. On arrival in Lusaka, the same representatives who had met you on day 1 will be waiting to help assist you to your scheduled flight to Jeki.
When you land at Jeki Airstrip, you’ll be met by the friendly drivers for Tusk & Mane who will transfer you to camp. It’s now time to go back to basics and experience a truly traditional Zambian bush safari.
The camp is tucked away amongst the Winterthorn trees, there are 4 tents which have been designed to make the most of the Lower Zambezi environment – they are simple gauze tents with canvas drop down sides. There is an en-suite bathroom with bucket showers and flushing loos. The guiding here is some of the best, so sit back, relax and enjoy your stay – you’re in good hands!
After an incredible time down in the Lower Zambezi Valley, it’s now time to say goodbye. The drive from Tusk & Mane to Jeki will take about 20 minutes, leaving just in time to catch your domestic flight departing back to Lusaka. Once you’ve landed back in Lusaka, the same representatives will meet and assist you with your luggage and help you with your international immigration procedures.
