Because we've had sporadic internet service, my blog posts are a bit behind. I'll catch up - eventually. Stay tuned.
Our fourth camp is the Lufupa Camp at the confluence of the Lufupa and Kafue Rivers in Kafue National Park – Zambia.
To get from the Okavango Delta in Botswana to Kafue National Park, our home for 3 nights, we took a safari vehicle, followed by a small plane, then a van to the Zambezi River where we took a small boat-ferry to Zambia, another van to the Livingstone Airport where we boarded another small plane which took us to a dirt airstrip where we met our Kafue safari vehicles. The entire journey took us a grueling 9 hours, but it would have taken us more than 18 hours to drive it.
Along the way we stopped at a local village market.
Kafue is Zambia’s oldest park and is by far the largest – the second largest national park in the world and about the size of Wales. It has been little developed until recent years and is still a raw and diverse slice of African wilderness.
The game here is less habituated to humans and safari vehicles and is therefore much harder to spot. However, we had excellent guides who lead us to multiple antelope, countless bird species and 3 leopard sightings.
