Kafue National Park

Kafue National Park is one of the biggest wildlife parks in Africa and the biggest reserve in Zambia. It has an area of about 22000 square kilometers. The top of the park is separated by the highway and the Northern section of the park is separated by small and big rivers. Large sections of Kalahari wood make southern Kafue a home for populations of plains game such as the concentration of elephants. Tripety travelers enjoy this place all year round.

Wildlife and very rare birds are concentrated in this park. When Tripety travelers go safari, they take a lot of photos from different places in this park. Walk safari is the best variant for winter. It is better to have a walk in the boat on the Kaufe river in summer when it rains. 

The well-known highway M9, also known as Mongu Road makes the way to the North easier. Also, Tripety travelers may plan their way to  Kafue’s main gate, Hook Bridge, and they reach in a four-hour drive from Lusaka by Mongu Road as well. The majority of the park with its roads is supposed to drive only 4×4 vehicles.
