Covering such a large area, with a variety of habitats, the National Park is rich in wildlife. Kafue has a superb range of antelope and large herds of red lechwe and puku, with smaller groups of zebra and blue wildebeest in the Busanga Plains around June. Kudu, bushbuck, eland, reedbuck, common duiker, grysbok and defassa waterbuck are all frequently seen while out on safari game drive in the northern area of the park.
