Kafue National Park

Found in the centre of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia's national parks covering a massive 22500 Km Sq.

First established as National Park in the 1950s by the legendary Norman Carr, Kafue is one of the largest national parks in the whole of Africa. Despite its size and prominent location, only two hours’ drive from Livingstone, it remains little known and largely unexplored.

Kafue holds possibly the greatest diversity of wildlife of any national park in Africa and in recent years the Park has seen a small and well-managed growth in the number of Safari Camps and Lodges that operate in and around the Park. This new interest has brought with it more visitors and investment. Importantly the wildlife now enjoys an increased level of protection by the Zambian Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) supported by conscientious efforts of the safari camp and lodge operators.
