Kafue National Park

Kafue National Park is one of Zambia’s oldest — and largest — national parks. It is best known for the diversity of its wildlife, with everything from elephants to crocodiles, pangolins to bushbabies living here. The sheer size of the park means it isn’t a place to tick off the Big Five in 24 hours — instead, linger a while and explore some of Africa’s lesser-known animals.
