Wilderness Safaris Announces Daily Flights to Busanga Plains for 2020 Season

Wilderness Safaris is set to improve access to Zambia’s extraordinary Busanga Plains by introducing daily flights between Kafue National Park and Lusaka or Livingstone during August, September and October 2020. In partnership with Wilderness Air Zambia, which is operated by Staravia, the initiative will increase travel convenience into the region while cutting down on complexities.

“Many of our guests don’t know how straightforward it is to connect to various southern African countries, which is why we’re thrilled to offer these daily flights to Busanga. It showcases just how simple flying into the region is, and encourages our guests to do more travelling to Busanga – and in so doing, make a genuine difference to local communities and conservation”, says Alison May, Wilderness Safaris Retail Sales Manager for North America.

There are a number of convenient route options that offer travellers easy access to Busanga – such as, but not limited to, flying from Cape Town, South Africa to Kafue through Livingstone, or flying from Botswana to Kafue, also through Livingstone. In addition, guests can travel from Zimbabwe to Kafue, either from Mana Pools via Chirundu, or from Hwange. This will be made even easier with the availability of Wilderness Air Zambia’s daily flights offering.

Despite the challenges Wilderness Safaris has faced since opening its camps in the Busanga Plains in 2006, the company has made great strides in the region’s ongoing biodiversity conservation. By travelling with Wilderness Safaris, each guest becomes a conservationist in their own right, helping the company to contribute more than USD500 000 in concession fees to Kafue each year.
