We have a few clients arrive in their own plane, flying into our local airstrip at Chunga. The ‘Bill Boys’ took these photos on their way here from Joburg via Livingstone recently.
Proflight will be operating scheduled flights from Lusaka to Chunga from January 2018 linking the Kafue with other parks in Zambia and Livingstone (Victoria Falls). We meet fly-in clients at the airstrip then drive them the 30kms to camp enjoying a game-drive on the way.
The riverine bush is always green but trees all over the park have been bursting into blossom and leaf ahead of the rains which have now arrived. The heat of the last few weeks triggered the new life in hundreds of shades of green. Campers from Slovenia were amazed at how green the trees are so late in the dry season. The park will now burst into further life as the grass returns, our Summer has started.
The Kafue River never runs dry, we just have to wait and see how high the level will rise over the next five months.
