The Heart of the Kafue.
We, Andy and Libby Wilson, chose to build our Bush Camp in the Wild Zone of the park because it was a relatively undiscovered area that needed to be brought to the attention of the discerning safari-goer. This special zone allows limited development so visitors can enjoy the pristine and unspoilt bush in relative isolation.
Kasabushi Camp is situated on a stunning and interesting stretch of the Kafue River with a beautiful view of the palm-covered islands opposite. The camp has been built to maximise guest’s enjoyment of the river from both the Round House and chalets.
The ‘Round House’ is based on an old English design but the roof ‘sails’ add a dramatic, contemporary edge. The two tented chalets have been hand-built and stylishly crafted. Each is spaced far enough apart so guests have peace and privacy. The Bush Camp is small and intimate so guests can enjoy exclusivity and service which revolves around them only. Furnishings are hand-made using local wood and the beds are heavenly. As well as the beautiful bedding we offer a choice of pillows so guests can sleep well, creature comforts make all the difference in the bush! Our Bush Camp has been built with a lot of love, care and a skilled attention to detail. A natural, granite plunge pool with waterfall and infinity view of the river is the perfect place to cool off in the heat of the day.
As we are based in the park all activities start directly from camp and include game-drives, boat cruises skippered by Andy and guided walks. Maps are provided for self-drivers to explore the park at their leisure.
Our camp is the perfect retreat to get close to nature and to enjoy the wildlife, bush and river.
Having decided that the Central Kafue was where we wanted to build our camp we discovered our dream location in 2010. Andy found the exact spot using Google Earth! It’s been a long and eventful journey but our Bush Camp is now open and being enjoyed by our guests.
Andy is a born and bred Rhodesian, a bushman through and through and Lib, born in the UK, is the home-maker. Between us, we have created a camp that we are proud to call our home in the bush and look forward to sharing it with guests looking for a camp with a heart.
