Kafue National Park is Zambia’s biggest and oldest national park, but despite its size and prominent location only two hours’ drive from Livingstone town, it remains little-known and largely unexplored. Thanks to its size and variety of habitats the Kafue holds a fantastic diversity of wildlife. Its flood plains, rivers, and woodlands are home to more species of ungulate (hoofed animal) than any national park south of the Congo Basin! Huge herds of lechwe and puku are common, and the park is regarded as one of the best places in Africa to see leopard.
REMARKABLE & REMOTE
The Kafue River and the delta it creates are home to pods of hippo and some of the largest crocodiles in southern Africa. As the bush dries out towards August and September you can watch elephants frolicking in the river and swimming from bank to bank. The park is also home to an exceptionally high density of lions.
A number of private lodges now make this remarkable and remote park accessible to any wildlife-loving traveler!
