Upon arrival in camp, take it easy and relax after your long trip, a sundowner in camp is a great start to your 5 nights bush experience.

The following day you will awaken early to the sweet smell of the unpolluted African bush and after breakfast venture out into the Park in an open 4×4 safari vehicle for your first taste of what lies ahead. Most of your game-viewing from Kafunta will be by vehicle and you will enjoy both day and night drives.

You will spend 2 nights here before being transferred the 2 – 3 hours to Kafunta’s remote Island Bush Camp where you will stay for another 2 nights, there are fewer roads in this area of the Park and most of the activities from this bush-camp will be on foot.  You will return for a last night at Kafunta before your flight out of Mfuwe.
