Shumba Camp

Kafue National Park, Zambia

Property Description

Shumba Camp is situated in the centre of the Busanga Plains close to permanent water and within easy access of the teeming floodplains. Shumba is named after a favourite species in the area: its large prides of lion that are often seen right next to camp – or even, unusually, in trees. Viewing of this and other species is possible from the comfort of the tent or main deck, while the camp’s fig trees ensure both shade and constant bird activity.

Shumba Camp comprises six spacious luxury safari tents, all on raised platforms with spectacular views. The dining area is elevated so as to take in this vista and each morning’s sunrise; dinner takes place either here or in the cosy boma where guests can also enjoy elements of local Zambian culture.

Guests have the option of game drives in and around the Plains and water-based activities when they are still inundated. Night drives provide the added excitement of the nocturnal wonders of the area, and floating in a hot air balloon (August – October) high over the Plains is an unforgettable experience.

NOTE: Shumba Camp is open seasonally between 01 June and 31 October each year.
