Explore the three major arteries of the Kafue National Park: The Kafue, Lufupa and Lunga Rivers. Traversing the course of the Lufupa River from its confluence with the Kafue, its mix of water from two different catchments clearly apparent, right up to the Busanga Plains takes one through the diverse habitats of riverine forest, miombo woodland, acacia- and palm-strewn floodplain, dambos and ultimately the plains themselves. This mix of habitats harbours a huge diversity of species from leopard and wild dog of the Lufupa woodlands to lion and cheetah of the Busanga Plains, Defassa waterbuck and yellow baboons of the riverine to lechwe and oribi of the grasslands. Game drives, nature walks and boating ensure an interesting and varied exposure to the environment and associated bird and mammal life in this trip that offers the best of Kafue.
