Both are operated by Jeffery & McKeith one of the last remaining owner–run and operated safaris in Zambia.
Located just a few hours north of Musekese Camp, remotely located Ntemwa-Busanga has just 4 simple tents accompanied by open-air en-suite bathrooms at the rear, with flushing loos and warm bucket showers; the main area supplies a modest amount of power for charging cameras and other devices.
4 Rustic tents with ensuite facilities
July to November
The owners of the camp are excellent guides and a key draw here – Tyrone McKeith & Phil Jeffery are both passionate about Kafue and its conservation.
Ntemwa-Busanga has access to a vast road network covering the expanse of the Busanga Plains and southern treelines. Zambia is one of few places where night drives are permitted and all our vehicles are equipped with spotlights and red-filters!
Packed lunches are often taken to allow a long day in the bush exploring the vast Busanga Plains.
The wildlife of the Busanga Plains is as varied as it is numerous. Regional specials such as roan and sable antelope are common sightings here, along with thousands of red lechwe there is no shortage of game to view and photograph. Busanga is also home to some of the largest herds of buffalo in the park, with numbers over 600, a sight to behold. The Southern Plains areas are home to wildebeest and zebra, along with herds of the diminutive oribi and secretive reedbuck. Of course the predators are here too, with a dominant lion pride, the ‘Papyrus Pride’ resident to the wetter plains in the north and both the Moshi and Lufupa prides utilising the areas to the north and south of Ntemwa-Busanga camp. Leopard are here too, especially along the treeline of the plains, the same area that offers cheetah sightings from time to time and late season wild dog sightings.
