This 2-nights package introduces the Kafue National Park which is a unique area. The enormous size (one of the biggest National Parks in Africa), the many different habitats and the huge variety of mammals and birds make it an area waiting to be explored. It is Zambia’s biggest and oldest National Park and is easily accessed from both Lusaka and Livingstone. But the best of all is the untouched wilderness that the park has to offer as mass tourism does not exist; leaving the park pure and unexplored. This is what a real safari should be like, excellent game viewing with a rich diversity of wildlife, stunning landscapes and unspoiled by mass tourism. Although the park has a lot to offer, relatively few people visit this Zambian treasure.
The package is more focused on the great Wildlife Sanctuaries of Zambia and you will get a chance to experience one of the best wildlife safaris on the African Continent.
Our driver will pick you up from your hotel on this day and transfer you from Lusaka to Mukambi Safari Lodge in Kafue National Park. This road transfer takes approximately 3 hours driving on the tarred road. Mukambi Safari Lodge will be your home during your Easter weekend while exploring the hiden gems which Kafue National Park has to offer.
Commonly known as “The Gateway to The Kafue National Park”, Mukambi Safari Lodge is centrally located in the park, right on the banks of the stunning Kafue River. The Kafue National Park is one of the largest national parks in Africa (roughly the size of Wales at more than 22,000km²), therefore we would recommend you book with us for at least a week so you have time to explore this vast park and combine time at Busanga, Fig Tree and Mukambi. However, shorter bookings of 3 to 4 nights at Mukambi will also guarantee a truly unique safari! The lodge itself consists of a thatched building with several decks overlooking the Kafue River, and offers a new infinity pool, so on the hot days you can relax in the pool, looking over the vast Kafue River, peacefully reading one of the books from our small library collection. Upon return from your activities, relax with drink in hand in one of our lounge areas, all of which offer stunning views of the river. Or chat to one of our guides while gazing up at the stars in the night sky by our warm campfire. Don’t hesitate to visit our curio shop, which offers a selection of products made by the local village, or to ask for one of our massages on offer, which take place in the comfort of your room. Finally, don’t forget to look out for the many animals, which find sanctuary around the lodge area; impalas, baboons, monkeys, elephants, hippos, even a small pride of lions, and of course our office wild cat, Simba!
After the morning activity on this day, your driver will transfer you from Mukambi Safari Lodge in Kafue back to Lusaka – this marks the end of your 2 nights stay in Kafue National Park.
