Kafue is one of the largest national parks in the whole of Africa. Despite its size and prominent location the park is only a short flight from Livingstone. Yet it remains little-known and largely unexplored with vast tracts of its virgin bush still untouched.
Kafue National Park is a huge and magical wilderness area spanning 22,000 km² making it the largest park in Zambia & roughly comparative to the size of Wales or Massachusetts. The park offers excellent game viewing with over 55 different species of animals.
Although largely flat, the park has a diverse range of ecosystems including tropical rivers, forests and vast floodplains. The area is a great fishing and birding destination.
The ecosystem is characterized by savanna grasslands with Miombo tree species interspersed throughout the region.
Boating along the Lufupa and Lunga rivers, you encounter large pods of hippos while crocodiles can be seen gliding silently under the overhanging trees.
The diversity and variety of micro habitats make the Kafue a pleasurable destination in which to experience walking safaris, boating and canoe trips, both day and night drives in search of leopard & other nocturnal species.
