Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest park in Zambia, and is the second largest national park in the world! It covers 22,440 km2 of land and offers an excellent collection of game and birds… Visitors travel to Kafue to enjoy the many fishing opportunities, as well as the vast and varying landscapes and beautiful scenery. These wonderful views can be seen from the marvellous and untouched Busanga Plains in the north, to the lush southern region that gets fed by the sustaining Kafue River.

Kafue National Park supports a diverse and immense number of wildlife. Animal species in this area include: lion, leopard, cheetah, puku, roan, oribi, duiker, tsessebe, kudu, grysbok, zebra, red lechwe, reedbuck, impala, buffalo and hartebeest, as well as warthog, bush pig, serval, hyena, jackal, baboon, vervet monkey, civet, genet, porcupine and mongoose.

In the south the Kafue River runs into the Itezhi Tezhi Dam – a vast inland sea covering an area of 370 km2. This expansive watery area covers approximately 750 km2 during the rainy season, as there are numerous streams and rivers flowing into the dam collectively. This is a beautiful area surrounded by rocky bays, grassy plains and submerged trees. It provides a home for many hippos and crocodiles, and supplies water to elephant, buffalo, zebra and many other animal species. The dam also offers excellent fishing opportunities.
