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 square kilometers. Despite its size and prominent location (only two hours’ drive from Livingstone), it remains largely unexplored with vast areas of its bush still untouched.

Kafue has the highest diversity of wildlife south of the Congo Basin. This reserve is particularly special for sightings of rare and unique species such as 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 hard to find in a natural environment However, the Kafue has the largest population 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.

BEST TIMES TO GO

May to June

As the rains abate and the foliage dies back, the animals return to the Kafue River.

July to October

The temperatures increase, ranging from 25 degrees in July to 40 degrees in October. As October approaches, natural water dries out and the Kafue River is the only significant source of water for the animals, attracting large herds from vast distances.

November to April

The rains fill natural waterholes, the foliage and grasses grow and animals disperse into the hinterland making animal viewing more of a challenge during this time.
