4/4

Wasa lodge is located on the Eastern side of Kasanka park, 12kms from the entrance and is on the edge of Lake Wasa, an area devoted to research and conservation by the Kasanka Trust. This lodge is only one of two safari camps within the area and is the main base for the park's research team.

Eight simple, comfortable rondavals, each with its own verandah accommodate guests to this out of the way area. There are some other, rather more basic rondavals which are for self catering parties.

Wasa is perfectly situated for easy access to the tree hide at Fibwe. Standing at 18 metres high in a mahogany tree, this hide provides a fantastic view over the Kapabi swamp and is known to bo one of the best vantage points for spotting the sitatunga antelope.

Kasanka National Park

On the western edge of Lake Bangweulu is Kasanka, one of Zambia's smallest parks covering just 420 square kilometres and the only park in Zambia under private management. Kasanka is interlaced with numerous rivers, lakes, wetlands and some stunning papyrus swamps and as a result, like Bengweulu, is an area famous for its superb birdlife. Like many of the parks, Kaskanka was badly hit with poaching and in 1985 was rescued by a British expatriate, who, along with a local farmer decided to launch a petition to save the park from extinction and set up the Kasanka Trust.

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.
