After falling in love with the Busanga Plains, we built Chisa Busanga Camp to mimic its surrounds through beautiful architecture and environmentally conscious design.
Chisa is the Nyanja word for ‘birds nest’, and the rooms were inspired by the weaver bird nests that decorate the trees here. Sitting on a small tree-lined island, the camp uses only solar power as do the game drive vehicle and bicycles used to explore the watery dambos beyond.
Chisa Busanga Camp celebrates the natural and cultural heritage of the Busanga Plains, a place that will leave an indelible imprint on your mind, as it has on ours.
Our four Nests blend seamlessly into the wild outdoors, while paying attention to the creature comforts needed inside for a luxurious nesting and sleeping experience.
You can stand on the deck of your Bird’s Nest and see so far that you can see today leaving and tomorrow coming all at the same time.

YAn outstanding camp in an awesome location! What's not to love?! This camp is small and perfectly formed. The individual nests are impeccably designed to capture the stunning views over the plains but also the star filled sky in the evening, visible from a window just above the bed. Effortless stargazing! There are only four nests so it is perfect for a small group or family to stay and take the whole camp to themselves!
