The sheer diversity and untouched beauty of the Busanga plains is enough to draw you in and leave you breathless.

Add to this the vast herds of antelope, elephant and the prolific bird life and you have enough to satisfy even the most enthusiastic of safari goers, without even mentioning the magnificent lions.

Our guides have been tracking the prides for years and can fill you in on new contenders to the alpha male and how old each cub is. As the season progresses and the water dries up the animals move closer together, making for spectacular viewing.

With dinners on the deck and striking sunsets, Kasonso Busanga is the perfect combination of warm hospitality and great guiding.

The lions of Busanga are a highlight of the region and the encounters of these cats moving around the floodplains is something to behold.

The water, fig tree islands and floodplains make for superb birding and the Busanga has an incredible birding list to experience.

An authentic bushcamp that provides all the important fundamentals of a comfortable camp but focuses on the outstanding guiding and wildlife experience.
