Chisa Busanga Camp

Welcome to Chisa Busanga Camp

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 Story


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.

Open 1st June to 15 November 2023.

Busanga Plains


A Hidden Gem

The Busanga Plains, secreted away in the northern part of the Kafue National Park in Zambia, is one of the most untouched wilderness areas in Africa. Within its quietness, this wetland ecosystem bristles with diverse life that makes for a special safari experience.


What to Expect

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. - Jacques van Heerden, Group Operations Manager

Community Experiences

With conservation and community in our hearts, we dedicate resources towards developing and supporting various related initiatives. We encourage you to join us on this journey by being actively involved in these projects during your stay.

Inclusive Activities

The days in Busanga are blissful. Mornings begin gently navigating the plains on our electric Land Cruiser and stopping in the bush to enjoy a breakfast prepared over hot coals. After a late afternoon walking safari, evenings wind down with stargazing and storytelling around the campfire.
