Day 1 : Arrival / Kafue National Park

Guests are met on arrival at O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and assisted with transferring to an international flight to Lusaka. From Lusaka, guests are chartered to Kafue National Park in northwestern Zambia. Shumba Camp is one of the finest safari camps in the Kafue safari area and offers an authentic yet luxurious tented camp experience. Set on a treed island in the Busanga Plains, the tents enjoy spectacular views across the plains. Stargaze after dinner tonight with the enigmatic cacophony of the surrounding wilderness providing the soundtrack.

Day 2-4 : Kafue National Park

The next two days are devoted to safari activities in the Busanga Plains of Kafue National Park, including twice daily game drives in open-air safari vehicles.

Kafue National Park is Zambia's oldest and largest national park. It was established in 1924 and is made up of a vast, undulating plateau. A few hills are found along the mid-reaches of the Kafue River and the area is mainly made up of vast areas of Kalahari sand. The Lunga and Lufupa rivers provide water for the area. The vegetation is grassland as well as riverine woodland and there is also teak growing in most parts of the park.

The Kafue safari area is well known for its predators, particularly the leopard. Mammals are well-represented in Kafue and include elephant, hippos, buffalo, sable, roan, Lichtenstein's hartebeest, puku, red lechwe in the Busanga Plains, lion, spotted hyena, and wild dog. The Kafue River and its flood plain are particularly well-known for their rich birdlife, which is represented by about 450 species.
