About

About Shumba Camp

Shumba is a stylish camp located in the centre of the beautiful Busanga Plains, placed on the edge of a 'Tree island'. It has 6 spacious luxury tented suites, all en-suite with an indoor and outdoor shower and all with incredible views of the surrounding plains.

The bar and dining area is shaded by fig trees to escape the mid-day sun, and looks over the wildlife-rich plains, home to a wealth of game, including lion, wild dog and the elusive cheetah.

Dinner takes places either on the deck under the starry sky, or in the cosy boma where you will witness a little Zambian culture with your meal.

Please consult your doctor for the right prophylactic (anti Malarial) drugs. You may also require proof of Yellow Fever and other vaccinations, so please make sure these are up to date.
