Busanga Bush Camp lies in the heart of the Busanga Plains, a vast mosaic of expansive, grassy seasonal floodplains that extends to the horizon. The camp, nestled in a vegetated island of fig trees, can accommodate 8 guests in 4 well-appointed tents. The tents are all ensuite with al fresco showers and private verandas which have hammocks to give extra relaxation while enjoying the view. The lounge area is under canvas looking out over the floodplain; breakfast is often served here to take in the view of herds of lechwe and puku. The dining area lies under the shady canopy of a majestic tree from which an unusual lantern chandelier hangs, romantically lighting up dinner.
Activities include game drives, walking safaris and night drives, led by qualified guides. Thanks to the rising mist off the floodplains as they dry up in winter, guests can experience incredible sunrises and sunsets, with the sun a spectacular pink colour, while the floodplains teem with wildlife and birds. A special experience is an exclusive hot air balloon ride (August – October), ending with champagne breakfast.
The main bar and lounge area are tucked away under the shade of the trees and the dining area has a stunning chandelier set above the table.
NOTE: Busanga Bush Camp is open seasonally between 01 June and 31 October each year.
Busanga Bush Camp accepts children 12 years of age and over.
