There are numerous campsites and lodges/camps offered in and around the park. Most are set overlooking the banks of the Kafue River or otherwise with views to wildlife-rich plains.
An additional ‘bed levy’ is usually included in the rates for the upmarket lodges, but for self-catering stays a US$5 levy is often added to your accommodation bill.
Other than one highly recommended property, Wilderness Safari Company (Busanga Bushcamp, Lufupa Bushcamp, Shumba Camp) has a monopoly on accommodation in the Busanga Plains (guests are ferried in by a charter flight and a short hop on a helicopter), perhaps the most beautiful part of the park; however, unfortunately there's no camping.
Several other lodges/camps are in the center and northeastern section where you can pitch a tent, and more suited for the self-equipped, independent 4WD crew.
With the exception of Nanzhila Plains Camp, most of the lodges in the south of the park are lined along the Kafue River, or around Lake Itezhi-Tezhi.
