Kafue River Lodge’s location lends itself to offering a wide range of activities, species and experiences. The 4 ensuite chalets overlook the river with the miombo woodland behind camp playing home to a steady stream of game and birds. There are 2 central areas – an open, riverside “fire pit” for starlit dining and early morning coffee and the beautiful main lapa area built on a deck over the river offering cool shade and 180 degree river views.

It is a simple bush camp with canvas walled tents (each with an ensuite bathroom), gauze windows and thatched roofs. Kasonso Camp gives you the opportunity to explore the Busanga Plains by morning, afternoon or all day game drives with your specialist Busanga guide.

What you will love about Kasonso:
The lions of Busanga are a highlight of the region and the encounters of these cats moving around the floodplains is something to behold.
The water, fig tree islands and floodplains make for superb birding and the Busanga has an incredible birding list to experience.
The Busanga is also home to extensive lechwe populations and the topography of the land makes for a photographer’s dream!
