Campsite

Kasabushi’s campsite opened in April 2014 and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the best and prettiest in Zambia, in Southern Africa in fact.  The central part of Kafue National Park was unavailable to campers until 2014 so Lib and Andy have introduced a whole new area of the river and bush for self-drivers to enjoy and explore.  Kasabushi Camp is open all year.

A view worth waking up early for.

The location is stunning with views across the river to an island as well as up and downstream with resident pods of hippos wallowing in the river.

There’s a great diversity of bird and animal species in the Kafue National Park, more than anywhere else in Africa.  Feedback from guests is that the central Kafue National Park is one of the most pristine, unspoilt and beautiful bush areas they have enjoyed and they love having it almost to themselves.

We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our ablutions.

Washing up is enjoyable with this view.

Our now famous showers with the summer roof on.

‘The best campsite showers in Africa’.

The campsite is for self-catering campers.  Facilities include two hot and cold waterfall showers; two toilets each with a wash basin (again with hot and cold… and hand soap) and mirror and a washing-up area with hot and cold water running and a separate water tap.  Use of a braai stand is included in the nightly charge.  All designated pitches are by the river and pre-held for campers that book ahead.  Firewood is included and efficient, friendly campsite staff are there to supply wood and manage all fireplaces.  Tents and air beds/stretchers/cots are available for hire. Rates

The campsite is surrounded by different species of trees, the main pitches have good shade.  The grass disappears late in the dry season leaving brown grass and sandy soil.  All pitches give campers space and privacy to enjoy their home in the bush in peace and quiet.  Lib and Andy have gone to a lot of trouble to build a campsite that is functional but attractive and different to anything else campers will have experienced.   The campsite furniture is hand-made and every pitch has a seat/table and stools for sitting or placing a cold beer on.

There are great fishing spots on the river as well as boat launch spots and moorings on the campsite bank.

The campsite is ideally situated Location just off the Spinal Road, 45kms south of the M9 and 4 hours drive from the outskirts of Lusaka.  From the south it’s less than 3 hours drive on the Spinal Road from Lake Itezhi Tezhi through the park.  Kasabushi Campsite is the perfect place to enjoy the Kafue River and the National Park.

  1. If there ever was a 5 star luxury camping experience in the bush, Kasabushi tops it! Thank you to Andy, Libby and their staff for a memorable week of bush walks, fishing local style, beauty, tranquillity and glorious showers under the stars.

  2. It sounds like I’ll be able to afford to buy you a great bottle of wine to toast your new venture, with that exchange rate. We’re already talking about how lovely it would be to come out. Let’s see what we can do!

  3. Thanks for a great weekend. Your location and campsite are absolutely beautiful. My 7 year old loved the shower and toilets (and she is picky). And of course we saw wild dog that we have been trying to see for over half a decade and our friend for more like 3 decades!
    We will be back, and look forward to seeing your main camp dvelopments

  4. It’s been nearly two years since our wonderful, albeit very short, stay at Kasabushi in May 2014. Great to see the progress you are making with the camp. Looking forward to returning for a longer stay next time. Best wishes, Dee & Steve (Australia)

    • Hi Dee and Steve, So good to hear from you and to know you still remember the campsite fondly. We hope life for you is good and thanks for keeping in touch. See you again one day we hope. Lib and Andy xx
