Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest national park in Zambia, covering an area of 22 400 square kilometres; and is one of the best places in Africa to spot prides of lion. What was established as a National Park by the legendary Norman Carr in the 1950’s, has now become one of the largest national parks in the whole of Africa. Besides its size and convenient location within two hours from Livingstone, it remains largely untouched and un-explored, mainly because of its expansive tracts of untamed bush. Its size and great variety in habitat types affords Kafue with an extremely diverse wildlife. Over the past few years, Kafue National Park has also seen the arrival of some fantastic luxury tented safari camps – inside, as well as surrounding the Park. The increasingly popular Park is enjoying a larger extent of support and protection from the Zambian Wildlife Authority.

WHEN TO GO?

The best time for game viewing in Zambia, and in Kafue National Park, is between May and October. This is dry season; the vegetation is sparse and the wildlife can be found drinking at the water holes. In rainy season (‘Green Season’) the bush is very thick and green, making for spectacular scenery but it’s harder to spot the wildlife amongst the greenery.

TOP ACTIVITIES

Game Viewing in Kafue National Park is exceptional, with hardly another vehicle in sight. The park is remote and completely off-the-beaten-track, only served by daily charter flights. The vast flood plains are home to huge herds of buffalo and wildebeest as well as puku antelope and red lechwe. Predators have the perfect hunting ground making for amazing sightings. Walking safaris, night drives and boating safaris are arranged by the camps to the best wildlife viewing locations in this huge park.

 

WHERE NEXT?

We recommend combining a visit to Kafue National Park with some of Zambia’s other highlight destinations such as Victoria Falls and South Luangwa. The easiest way to get to Kafue is to fly in via charter flight from Lusaka and fly out again and the end of your stay to reach your next destination. From Lusaka direct flights reach Johannesburg, Cape Town and even Windhoek, Namibia and Nairobi.
