The Busanga Plains is situated in the far north of the Kafue National Park in Zambia; one of the most important wetland resources in Zambia and one of the few areas in the world that remain untouched by human development. The Kafue National Park offers the largest mammal species diversity in Zambia due to its fascinating habitat mix and the Park is home to 55 large mammal species including 20 ungulate and 6 cat species. The Lunga area also offers fantastic mammal viewing, most prominent the hippopotamus that occur in high densities along the river. Puku and impala are common whilst buffalo, elephant, bushbuck, sable, Defassa waterbuck, Lichtenstein's hartebeest and oribi are frequently seen. Tree hyrax is a special mammal that can be found right in camp. Predatory species are also found in abundance in the Kafue National Park and include side-striped jackal, wild dog, cheetah, lion and sometimes leopard. Night drives are a highlight and often produce large-spotted genet and white-tailed mongoose.
