Shumba Camp

Shumba Camp

Along with its sister Kapinga Camp, Shumba Camp offers spacious luxury in the midst of Zambia’s lush Busanga Plains. Nestled right in the heart of the grasslands heralded as the jewel of Kafue National Park, the camp boasts 360-degree vistas of the expansive plains. Its six splendidly appointed safari tents are constructed on raised platforms to take full advantage of the surrounding views. Each room offers en-suite bathroom facilities including indoor/outdoor showers. The camp’s common dining and bar area are also elevated and are the perfect place to take in the sunrise and sunset. As the camp can only host a maximum of twelve guests, it affords a unique intimacy. Emphasis is placed personal attentiveness to each guest’s needs.

Toward the end of the annual rainy season, the Lufupa River floods these low-lying lands. As the floodwaters recede over the next few months, they leave behind fertile grasslands that attract astounding herds of plains game . . . as well as the animals that prey on them. Over a dozen major species of antelope inhabit the region, but most coveted are the lion, leopard, and cheetah. Activities center around daily and nightly game drives in search of close and unique encounters with these animals.
