Established in 1924, the Kafue covers over 22,400km2 of very varied terrain, and is one of the world’s largest parks. Naturally, its geography varies considerably. A safari from the north side of the park to the south, or vice versa, is an incredible diverse and rewarding journey. Kafues landscape transforms from flat open grasslands to miombo woodland interspersed with huge granite hills. The permanent Kafue River also shifts as it makes its way through the park, starting as a wide sluggish channel in the north, and changing to rapids crashing around hundreds of boulders in the south before emptying into the man-made Lake Itezhi-Tezhi.
