Kafue National Park
Days 5 - 9
Set in the heart of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the country's biggest and oldest National Park. The Lufupa, Lunga, and Kafue rivers provide the lifeblood of the reserve, with the annual summer flood of the Lufupa creating an impressive delta. The floodplains, rivers, and woodlands support an impressive array of animal and birdlife. Visitors can catch glimpses of the hippos swimming in the waters of Lake Itezhi-Tezhi, along with some of the biggest crocodiles in southern Africa. The park is home to over 500 bird species and numerous animals. Watch zebras and lions on the northern Busanga Plains, and antelopes and elephants on the more remote southern Nanzhila Plains. Cheetahs, not usually found easily, can be found throughout the park. Other species include warthogs, aardvarks, and monitor lizards.
