Animals & Birds

Kafue National Park is home to over 55 mammal species, including large prides of lion. Leopards and cheetahs are the prime predators, giving chase to many antelope species such as lechwe and kudu. Hippo, bush pig and warthog can also be found.

Smaller carnivores include the side-striped jackal, civet, genet and various mongoose.

Over 400 species of birds have been recorded in the park - stay close to the rivers for the best opportunities. Wattled crane, purple crested lourie and Pel’s fishing owl are just a few of the more notable species.

 

 

Notable Facts

Kafue lays claim to the greatest variety of animals and birds found anywhere in Africa.

The bush is still very wild and natural and with fewer visitors than most of the other national parks, affords a true safari experience.
