Established in 1924 in western Zambia, Kafue National Park is one of the oldest and largest in Africa (size of Belgium). Situated only 2 hours drive from Livingstone it is the perfect park to include on your journey through Hidden Zambia. Despite it’s prominent location it remains largely undiscovered by the tourist trade, offering some the best uninterrupted game viewing Africa has to offer.
Kafue is known for its abundant wildlife. You are in leopard country and it is not unusual to hear their throaty bark as the sun sets. Kafue also has a superb range of antelope and 430 different species of birdlife. However, this place isn’t about box ticking the ‘Big 5’ in a week. Kafue is a holistic experience with the landscape, the people and the wildlife. With an extremely healthy eco system, supporting a diverse number of wild animals you will animals that you weren’t expecting to find.
