A truly hidden gem of a park, with an abundance of characteristic antilopes, birds and predators. See the elephants gently walking by through the early morning mist, arising from the dambos, and enjoy the lechwe jumping the Busanga streams. Enjoy the amazing Secretary Bird, dancing in front of your tent.

Chisa Busanga Bush Camp lies on a beautiful island in the heart of the Busanga Plains, overlooking the massive floodplains and dambos that teem with wildlife and birds. As the floodplains are mostly inaccessible during the summer, when the rains turn the plains into a massive lake, Busanga is a seasonal destination, open from June-November. Its remoteness and the most remarkable sunrises when the mist rises of the drying floodplains, will guarantee a magical and truly unique experience.

The Busanga Plains can be reached either by plane from Lusaka (approx. 1,5 hours) or by car from Ila Safari Lodge (approx. 4 hours).
