Nestling in an island of fig trees in the middle of an extensive plain in Kafue National Park, this classic camp consists of four comfortable en suite tented rooms, accommodating a total of eight guests. Each tent has a verandah to enjoy the commanding views.

The lounge and bar area is under canvas, with an uninterrupted view over the vast mosaic of Busanga's grassy seasonal floodplain that extends to the horizon. Most meals are taken in the open air, so you can watch herds of lechwe and puku feeding, while dinner is served under the shady canopy of an impressive tree. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular, particularly in winter when the mist created as the floodplain dries burns off in the heat of the morning sun.

Activities include safaris on foot and by vehicle, and night drives, all led by qualified experienced guides who are extremely knowledgeable about the area and its wildlife. As the plains dry out, this camp is perfectly situated to see large numbers of plains game such as puku, red lechwe, buffalo and wildebeest, and their predators  most notably lion. Cheetah and wild dog are also seen, while a special treat is the resident herd of roan antelope. If you are interested in birding, the park's 491 species includes endemics such as Chaplin's barbet.
