Kafue National Park at 22,400 square kilometres is Zambia’s largest and oldest National Park. Named after the Kafue river whose headwaters lie in the Copperbelt on the border with the DRC and flow southwards through the park from North to South. The habitats and topography are extremely varied from the vast plains of the Busanga, the Miombo Forrest areas, flood plains, the rocky islands of the Kafue, and the lake that sits behind the Itezhi-Tezhi Dam. The Kafue is a wilderness like no other

A vast area and seasonally abundant surface water mean that the game population in this park is dispersed, but the huge wilderness gives rise to a diversity of bird and animal life that is almost unmatched.

Notable species in the Kafue include a small population of Cheetah, Red Lechwe, Sitatunga, Lions, and many others.

This self-drive adventure is a great option for anyone in Zambia wishing to take a short break and escape it all, or as an add on or extension to their holiday.
