Shumba Camp, Kafue, Zambia

Shumba Camp is a Classic Camp

Elegance on the diverse Busanga Plains

Located on a tree island in the centre of the breathtaking Busanga Plains is stylish Shumba Camp. Its six luxury tented units are spacious, en-suite with both indoor and outdoor showers, and all raised on wooden platforms with spectacular views of the surrounding plains.

The bar and dining area is shaded by spectacular fig trees and boasts magnificent vistas over the open wildlife-rich plains. Dinner takes place either on the deck or in the cosy boma, along with a little Zambian culture while the camp’s main deck is a perfect place to star gaze or relax after your evening meal. The area is a magnet for a wealth of plains game, followed by lion, wild dog and cheetah.

Highlights

  • Meaning ‘lion’, Shumba is aptly named after the prides of lion seen in the area
  • The Plains are home to hundreds of red lechwe, puku, roan and oribi
  • Sail over the Plains in a hot air balloon – the most exclusive wildlife ballooning in Africa
