Category: Land Mark :: Plains/Plateau

Busanga Plains in the far north of the Kafue National Park is a 720sq km ancient lake bed. It is seasonally flooded by the Lufupa River and its tributaries and provides essential grazing and water for a host of animals. One has to be careful where you walk or drive as the 'floating grass' can be very misleading. The Plains hosts an extremely wide variety of antelope (reedbuck, waterbuck, puku, impala, roan and sable, eland, oribi), zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, hippos, predators and a prolific bird life. As the Plains are flooded each year, the camps on the Plains are seasonal. The tented camps are rebuilt every year in May/June and only operate between July and October if they are not built on stilts. (Sept-14).
