Busanga Bush Camp has just four chalets that are shaped in the Meru-style. Mosquito netting has been used for the top section allowing cool breezes to penetrate in the hotter parts of the day. Each room is graced with a queen size bed, en suite bathroom, showers and toilet.
The main lodge has been placed in the center of the camp, made from local wood it has splendid views of the plains. Facing East its also an ideal location for sunrises while being served your breakfast. Lechwe and Puku feed right in front of the camp, fairly safe in the knowledge that predators wont come near the lodge – though kills in camp at night are not unheard of. The dining area is set under the trees a little back from the main tent and at night is lit up with lanterns making it a romantic setting.
A modest library with reference books is available with tea and coffee close at hand. A small viewing deck has been constructed around a Sausage Tree – beware when standing under it for falling fruit!
From around November to June the plains are mostly flooded and with the extra water the vegetation can be incredibly green and lush. Its well named as both a plains destination and a swampy morass. Birding is always good with permanent water and antelope to disturb insects and fertilize the area. As the water dries what vegetation remains stays nutritious for many months due to the subterranean water.
