Kapinga Camp is located in Zambia's Kafue National Park - one of the largest National Parks in Africa.

The Busanga Plains in located in the extreme north of the Kafue - one of Zambia's most significant wetland resources and one of the few areas in the world that remain untouched by development and human activity. The Busanga Plains cover an area of approximately 750 sq km and Kapinga Camp is located in the centre of this wildlife paradise. The Busanga Plains is the best area in Zambia to see cheetah.

The beauty of the Kafue National Park - and the Busanga Plains in particular - is evident in its diverse habitats with floodplains, miombo woodland and open grassy areas known as dambos - creating a paradise for wildlife and birdlife.

The Busanga Plains are home to hundreds of red lechwe, ubiquitous puku, stately roan and the diminutive oribi. Lichtenstein's hartebeest, herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo make for a full set of antelope. This wealth of game on the plains is also a big attraction for predators, including wild dog, cheetah and prides of lion.

Kapinga Camp is designed to blend in with the environment and natural products have been used as much as possible in the construction of the camp. Interiors are spacious and have all the modern conveniences that one would wish for. With only four luxury safari tents accommodating a maximum of 8 guests, one can be assured of exceptional personal attention.

Kapinga Camp's guests can take part in game drives in and around the plains and night drives offer the added excitement of the nocturnal wonders of the area. All these are led by qualified guides who are extremely knowledgeable about the area and its wildlife.

For those interested in birding, the Park boasts 491 species of birds, including endemics such as Chaplin's Barbet.
