Kapinga Camp is situated in the north-west corner of the vast Busanga Plains of Kafue National Park, one of the largest national parks in Africa, while the Busanga Plains is one of Zambia's most significant wetland resources, and one of the few areas in the world that remain unspoilt by human development.

Kapinga Camp is designed to be in harmony with the environment; natural products have been used as much as possible in its construction. Interiors are spacious and with only four luxury safari tents accommodating a maximum of eight guests, one can be assured of exceptional personal attention.

Tents and the main area are all shaded by a canopy of majestic trees and on raised wooden platforms to enhance the panoramic view across the plains. Lively colours and stripes characterise the main area, comprising a lounge, dining area, camp fire and small pool under a shady tree.

Guests can take part in game drives and walking safaris in and around the Plains, while night drives offer the added excitement of observing the nocturnal wonders of the area.

This camp is perfectly situated to see the antelope that make the Plains their home: lechwe, the ubiquitous puku, stately roan antelope as well as the diminutive oribi. Herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo are all commonly seen as well as smaller groups of Lichtenstein's hartebeest. This wealth of game is also a big attraction for predators, including wild dog, cheetah and prides of lion. A birder's special, the Böhm's Bee-eater, can be seen in the parking area of the camp!

Kafue National Park

Kafue is Zambia's oldest park and, at 22,400 square kilometres, it's one of the larger national park in Africa. The park is supplied by 3 rivers, namely the Kafue, Lunga and the Lufupa and the Busanga Swamp is one of Zambia's most prominent wetland resources.  The surrounding Busanga Plains are partially flooded during the rains but are left rich and lush when the water recedes from around May, attracting great numbers of herbivores.  Along with many other species, this area is home to thousands of red lechwe which in turn attract the many lion, leopard and even cheetah to the area.

Zambia

Zambia has made a name for itself in the last ten years, as a high quality wildlife destination and one that is particularly good for walking safaris.  Intimate (and often rustic) bushcamps, excellent local guides, beautiful riverine scenery and varied game and birdlife are the trademarks of a safari in Zambia.
