Kafue is the largest national park in Zambia and the second largest park in Africa. The park is named after the Kafue River. Kafue’s attractions include the flooded grasslands in the north, the Busanga Swamps and the Busanga Plains. These areas support large herds of herbivores and their predators. In the dry season the animals keep close to the swamps and are easily seen. Kafue is easily reached by road from Lusaka. It is worth getting deep into the park and getting to the Busanga plains and swamps. Talk to an expert about this exciting area. Going at the right time of year, as with most of Zambia, is very important.
