Chisa Busanga Camp
Kafue National Park, Zambia - Adventure 3
When we started with the Chisa Busanga Camp design, Green Safaris’ Founder, Vincent and his close friend Bert Meerstadt, an architect from the Netherlands, were wandering together around the island where the camp would be situated, in the middle of the Busanga Plains. And at one moment during their walk together, they both looked up and stared at a beautiful bird’s nest. In a split second and without words, they both realised what the design of this new camp would be – nests!
Weavers' nests make ingenious homes and we wanted to replicate this in some way, but of course on a larger scale for people. The goal was to offer unique and fascinating accommodation as well as create beautiful spaces where guests could reflect on nature’s wonder and ingenuity. What we were soon to be reminded, however, is that nature has had millions of years to perfect her designs. Our experience at nest building at this point was zero.
Hidden away in the trees, the Chisa Busanga Nests weave together luxury and romance while immersing you in the enchanting wilderness of the Busanga Plains.
We are passionate about creating safari experiences that are gentle on Busanga’s delicate ecosystem and long-lasting in your mind.
Our solar-powered Land Cruiser and mountain e-bikes are sustainable ways to explore the plains; so too is the hot air balloon that carries you high above them. Back at camp, the plunge pool is absolute bliss in the midday heat and the campfire is where great conversation and stargazing happens.
