Wildlife in Kafue National Park
Over 45 mammal species have been recorded in the Kafue so even regular safari goers can find wildlife that is new to them – Aadvark, Pangolin, Caracal to name but a few.
Sadly there are no longer any Black Rhino, but our Big Cat viewings are excellent.
Birdwatching is excellent here, we have rarities
such as the African Finfoot and Pels Fishing Owl.
Nocturnal wildlife are leopard, porcupines, genet mongoose, civet and jackals, to name a few.
We take time to show you both big and small mammals and often the tiny delights like butterflies and busy spiders and beetles.
We offer a wide selection of activities, these include:
- Game Drives
Early morning and sundowner game drives in open vehicles. The sundowner drive turns into a night drive that reveals the nocturnals.
- Walking safaris
Walking at a leisurely pace through the bush, with a guide and armed scout affords the opportunity to get closer to nature, we concentrate on both fauna, flora and spoor.
- Boat Trips
A very relaxing experience in the beautiful surroundings of the blue green Kafue River, for viewing game coming to the river to drink, hippos and crocodiles bird watching and fishing.
- Self Drive with a Guide
You can hire a wildlife guide who will accompany you in your own vehicle for a game drive, for the day, or longer trips if booked in advance
If you have your own fishing gear, you can fish on the river’s edge or take the boat with a guide down the Kafue, or into the channels.
