The wetland and miombo woodland of the third largest national park in Africa - Kafue National Park

A day spent agog at the vast herds of Kafue, Africa’s third largest, seldom-visited and perhaps wildest National Park, will take in much of Africa’s plains wildlife in a single spectacular safari: thousand-strong herds of antelope, prides of attendant lions, packs of endangered wild dogs and chattering mobs of hyenas all live here, punctuated by a cacophony of birds and a number of lone cheetahs. However, the action doesn’t stop when you’re snug in your safari tent at night; as safe and well-appointed as the camps are, you’ll be well aware that life and death continues out along the Kafue River. Lions roar, dogs growl, and hyenas snigger as they hunt and scamper through the darkness with carnivorous intent. Like the big cats stalking the dream paintings of Henri Rousseau, your Kafue camp sleep time might just take on a particularly wild African tone.
