Busanga Plains are vast floodplains in Zambia – more reminiscent to the Serengeti than Zambia’s bush – and are situated in the country’s largest reserve. This rustic camp with luxurious touches is a great base for exploring the vast meadows of bushland, filled with grazing antelope, birds and hunting cats.
