The name ‘Kasabushi’ is KiKaonde for an ‘Otter’. The first creature Andy and Lib spotted in the Kafue River on their initial visit to the site in 2011 was a Cape Clawless Otter.
Kasabushi is a Bush Camp with a heart that is located in the centre of the Kafue National Park. Andy and Lib chose to build their camp within a Wild Zone of the park so by the very nature of their lease are restricted to the camp they can build and how they operate in order to conserve the pristine bush and its wildlife. The camp has been built by Libby and Andy and reflects a true passion for their home in the bush with the care and love they have put into it.
Their camp has opened up a stunning area of the Kafue National Park that had been out of bounds for many years but it is now there to be enjoyed and explored by those wanting to visit an undiscovered part of the Zambian bush.
Guests can enjoy the park and its game loops day and night because the camp is within the heart of the park.
Kasabushi Campsite has proved extremely popular with self-drivers since it opened in 2014. Being only 500m from the Spinal Road but right by the Kafue River guests enjoy both exploring the park as well as relaxing within it.
In 2015 Andy and Lib launched their boat ‘Kasabushi’ which added a new dimension to the camp giving clients the opportunity to enjoy the stunningly beautiful Kafue River.
Andy and Lib have now completed the building of their ‘refreshingly different’ Bush Camp and are enjoying welcoming guests to their home in the bush.
