Kasonso Camp is situated in a more central location in the Busanga Plains closer to the action and is more accessible early and for longer in the year. The team running the camp is Idos and Newton Mulenga (the father and son team formerly of Wilderness Safaris) and Ferrison who is one of the top birding guides in Zambia.

The Busanga Plains is undoubtedly the best place for wildlife viewing in Kafue National Park and Kasonso Busanga Camp is located right in the heart of the prime game viewing area. The Busanga Plains area is perfectly situated to see large numbers of red lechwe, but is also well known for the big lions, buffalo, elephant, wildebeest and relaxed roan antelope. Kasonso offers superb wildlife encounters at excellent value for money rates and combines superbly with sister camps – Kafue River Lodge and Kikuji Camp.

Kasonso is an authentic bush camp that provides all the important fundamentals of a comfortable camp but focuses on the outstanding guiding and wildlife experience. There are 4 tents, each with ensuite bathrooms and verandahs overlooking the plains. In the central boma area, you’ll find a comfortable seating area, bar and and outside deck which you can use at your leisure.

Kasonso Camp is a 10 minute drive from the Busanga Airstrip and shares the same traversing areas as Shumba, Busanga Bush Camp and Mukambi Plains. The easiest way of getting to Kasonso is to fly directly to Busanga Aristrip via charter plane. Your 2nd option is to fly to Lusaka where you’ll be collected and driven first to Kafue River Lodge where you will spend a night (or two) before continuing onto Kasonso. Contact us if you would prefer to self-drive into camp.

Why we like it

  • The lions of Busanga are a highlight of the region and the encounters of these cats moving around the floodplains is something to behold.
  • The water, fig tree islands and floodplains make for superb birding and the Busanga has an incredible birding list to experience.
  • The Busanga is also home to extensive lechwe populations and the topography of the land makes for a photographer’s dream!
