Zambia Exploration - Day 2
Day 2 in Zambia saw us flying directly from Livingstone to the Busanga Plains in norhtern Kafue National Park - a very convenient and efficient route that would be a long, cumbersome trip doing it any other way! From when we arrived we went straight on game drive and saw some amazing elephant herds moving across the plains. The sunsets are amazing for two reasons, its extremely flat so you see the sun all the way down to ground level and secondly there is a lot of haze and smoke in the air, making for diffused light into the evening. Early the following morning we were up and out to the balloon for a trip over the plains - a truly sensational experience and one that is included for stays of 3 nights or more at Wilderness Safaris camps. In addition we saw more elephants and general game, along with fantastic birding of grey crowned cranes and many more. This is one of the best places in Africa to see the rare and endangered Roan Antelope.
