African Travel Concept

Kafue National Park

Found in the centre of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia’s national parks. It covers a massive 22,400 km2. Despite its size and prominent location only two hours’ drive from Livingstone, it remains little-known and largely unexplored with vast areas of its bush still untouched. Thanks to its size and variety of habitat types, the Kafue holds a fantastic diversity of wildlife.

It has the highest diversity of wildlife south of the Congo Basin. Most common large wildlife are found here, but what makes this reserve so special, is the sightings of rare and unique species, e.g. the aardvark, bush baby and honey badger.

The park is regarded as one of the best places in Africa to find leopard. The African wild dog is a highly endangered species and a hard find in an natural environment, however the Kafue has the largest population of this species compared to any other national park in Africa. The Kafue River is home to pods of hippo and some of the largest crocodiles in southern Africa.

Kafue National Park is open and accessible twelve months of the year making it possible for visitors to experience this magnificent place, all year round.
