Busanga Plains – Zambia

Busanga Plains – our expedition to Zambia in 2019

Written by Gareth Hardres-Williams | Images by Richard Anderson

The Busanga Plains are a gorgeous expanse of open grassland in the northern reaches of the Kafue National Park in Zambia, distinct from much of the surrounding Miombo woodland.  Kafue, in Zambia’s central west, occupies more than 5 million acres of National Park, but surrounded by a further 10,5 million acres. All told the 15 million acres of Busanga lies within this enormous expanse of wilderness and we were privileged to lead an expedition here in June of 2019.

Below are some of the images that expose the wonderful diversity of the game viewing here, with super big cat sighting and a quite incredible view of a very relaxed Serval strolling through our drinks stop.  One can also catch a glimpse of the shy Sitatunga antelope on the fringes of the taller reeds.  Together with these terrific sightings, Zambia’s Busanga Plains offers the safari goer real wilderness experiences and complete remoteness.
