Mukambi Plains Camp overview

This is a small tented camp with just four large rooms situated on a palm island in the heart of the game rich Busanga Plains in Kafue National Park.

This is a wetland area which are accessible only by 4WD vehicles open between June to October. This is the only camp in the area which is independantly owned. The safari tents are large with mossie nets, ensuite, open air bathrooms with flush loos and bucket showers. The main dining and lounge area is on a raised deck providing views across the open plains and to a fig tree and palm island opposite the camp.

The area is home to big herds of buffalo (up to 1000 animals at times), wildebeest, zebra, roan antelope and red lechwe, followed by their predators, plenty of lion and several cheetah.


Open: July to October (Specific dates each year - please ask for details).

Location: Deep in the Kafue National Park in the remote Busanga Plains.

Rooms: 4 large tents with en-suite open air bathrooms.

Activities: Game drives, bush walks, boat trips and fishing.

Facilities: The central boma area is where guests can relax looking out of the plains. There is a cosy fire fit for the evenings.

Dining: Meals are served communally in the boma.

Children: The camp accepts children 9 years of age and over. As the camp is unfenced, children need to be supervised at all times.

"When we got to this place I thought there was some kind of prank being played, you couldn't even see the camp from where the vehicles stopped, it's so hidden in the palms of an 'island'!  The access over a very wobbly 'bridge' was not great and there were one or two housekeeping concerns to say the least.  However, since our stay we are happy that changes have been made and I'd be happy to recommend this to anyone - it's the best value camp on the Busanga Plains, a superb location and lovely staff."
