THE AREA & HUNT
Nkala is a relatively small area by Zambian standards (200 sq km). It is situated in the game corridors of the large buffalo herds that venture in and out the Kafue Park. The terrain varies between vast open grass plains (dambo’s), dense jess bush and miombo forest. The large buffalo, zebra and wildebeest populations offer some exceptional cat hunting.
