Welcome to Paradise….
Kafue National Park
Mayukuyuku Bush Camp is located on the banks of the Kafue River in one of the most picturesque spots in the whole Park.
The Kafue is one of the world’s largest game sanctuaries, about the size of Wales.
It is well known for it’s extremely diverse variety of terrain, wildlife and birds, probably second only to Serengeti, and is still fairly unexplored to this day. Four of the Big Five are here, plus Cheetah, Wild Dog, and over 450 species of birds.
You are unlikely to see many other people or vehicles which gives a sensation of having a private safari. The animals are sometimes more elusive than in other more commercialized parks, but this makes your sightings all the more special.

The Camp is just 250 km from the capital city of Lusaka, an easy four hour drive. Our location means we can meet the needs of both international and local visitors whether they have transport or not. We are open and accessible twelve months of the year.
Mayukuyuku is the ideal place to break a journey if travelling Westwards to the Barotse Plains, Liuwa National Park, or to the famous Kuomboka Ceremony near Mongu. The Camp is only 8 kms off the main road that dissects the Park.
The Camp lies on the Southern edge of the Northern sector of the Park. It is ideally located to access both the North and South Kafue to such places as The Busanga or Nanzhila Plains.
We are proud to have been selected as one of the top 4 lodges in Zambia in 2016 by a popular Travel Blog.
