Your air charter company will have details about flights to Mukambi. However Mukambi Safaris is also able to arrange chartered flights for its guests once they’ve enquired with reservations. Sadly there are no seat rates available and all flights are quoted on charter basis.

We use Chunga airstrip for guests staying at Fig Tree Bush Camp and guests staying at Busanga Plains Camp use Busanga airstrip.
Mukambi flights are mainly serviced by Flying Mission Zambia, but we are able to use other charters based on the requirements of the group. Duration of flights will differ depending on the plane used.

Rooms

Fig Tree Bush Camp is made up of four en-suite luxury safari tents (2 double and 2 twin) perched on 3-metre high stilts allowing for uninterrupted views. Each tent has its own private veranda presenting a unique view from the tree canopy. Guests will gather underneath the shady Fig Tree, after which the camp is named, to savour the serenity of the lagoon and enjoy delicious food and wine.

Activities

Fig Tree offers three activities, the first of which is Game Drives. These are available twice daily, one in the morning departing at sunrise, and one in the evening, which turns into a night safari. The guides take you from camp on a tour of the several surrounding loops, where you can see a mix of vegetation, from the open plains and tall grass, to the Miomba woodlands. You can see the animals parading in the open, or camouflaged with the African bush. Then following sundowners over the hippo pools, the night safari and search for nocturnal animals begins. The guides will return you to camp with the fire ready and time enough to enjoy all the stars the night sky has to offer.

Walking safaris depart in the early morning after the sun rises to avoid the heat of the day. The walk will begin with a short briefing from a guide, before you head off into the African bush and have the chance to get closer to nature than ever before. Our guides have a wealth of knowledge about Kafue National Park, and will share their knowledge with you, from the insects on the ground, to the birds in the sky. Walks last approximately 3 hours and you will return to camp ready for one of our deliciously prepared brunch served around 11.30am.
