We have created this discounted special offer specifically members of Safari Talk. Arranged for October 2017 and another planned for 2018, we will take just 6 guests on a new safari which we think will provide you with the ultimate North Kafue safari experience. With such a vast area to explore and so few camps, the feeling of having the Kafue to our selves on this safari is wonderful. The Kafue is re emerging as a key destination for any safari to Zambia.

 

Combining all of the Kafue's varied habitats from Miombo woodland, on the clear waters of the Kafue River and on the vast open grasslands of the Busanga Plains, staying at the highly-regarded Musekese Camp and the new Ntemwa Busanga Camp, run for you by the expert team at Jeffery & McKeith Safaris.

 

The safari is driven by the wildlife and built around your choice of how you might want to spend your days. I will be escorting the safari, and we will be personally guided by Tyrone McKeith or Phil Jeffery whose incredible knowledge and experience, not to mention passion for the Kafue, will help you get the most from your safari.

 

Phil and Tyrone have taken a small slice of the bush and sympathetically and perfectly created two beautiful safari camps where the game literally comes to you. The experience is made so special by the passion and knowledge that Phil and Tyrone have for what they are doing.

 

Predators are thriving, with a healthy population of lions spread across the Kafue. Typical to the woodland habitat Leopards stalk the shadows. Cheetah are often seen. Serval be seen hunting especially on the plains and African Wild Cat, amongst many other smaller mammals, previous safaris have found aardvark and pangolin. Wild dogs are here and although they remain hard to spot, sightings do increase as the dry season passes. Birds are a big part of any safari and the Kafue has an impressive list which your guides will be able to identify. Spectacular flocks of Open Billed Storks swirl over the plains, which are home to some rare and endemic species including Wattled Cranes and delightful Rosy Throated Longclaws. We will explore on walking safaris, game drives both during the day and in to the night, on river safaris, and have the unique chance to sit quietly in viewing blinds and let the game come to you.

 

We have reduced the cost of this safari by $300per person for members of Safari Talk

 

9 nights ( 1 night Pioneer Camp Lusaka + 4 nights Musekese + 4 nights Ntemwa-Busanga) $5475 pp

 

If you bring friends and/or family on the safari we will extend to them a discount of $130, and we will also apply that discount to bookings where guest are simply recommended by Safari talk members.

Looks quite intriguing though it does appear that this is a "couples" only itinerary? Ntemwa only has 3 tents so if it's a 6 person group..... As a solo traveler I'd have to bunk with someone or....not go? And is it 3 or 4 nights at Ntemwa? Only been to Zambia once and have been very interested in returning to the Kafue area. Any flying involved or is it all driving?

Hi Imonmm . We can take non sharing singles. Ntemwa is 3 tents as the maximum number of guests there will be just 6 however in fact there is a 4th tent so that in the event of there being singles they can accommodate 2 singles. All driving, although 2018 may see scheduled flight options !!

 

The photo of Tents are those used at Ntemwa, of course each with an ensuite and very comfy...

Looks interesting. Being Oct, would it be feasible to add two or three days to take in Kasanka fr the migration of fruit bats?

I'm interested in this for 2018, depending on dates. May 2018 maybe?? But I too would be a single most likely.

Hi AmyBatt

Would be great to have you come and stay at Musekese. May is too early to visit both camps (Musekese & Ntemwa-Busanga) as Ntemwa will be open in July when the bush/Busanga Plains has dried out after the season time of high water. If you can only make May let me know as it is still a special time to visit Musekese. Already this June sightings of the resident predators have been very good and our 4 male cubs have all survived the wet season and are make there presence known !
