Set on a lush island in the middle of the floodplains within the million-hectare Busanga Plains, Shumba Camp will appeal to adventurers, romantics and all those looking to get away from everything.
The camp offers just six elevated tented units, each with an en-suite bathroom and private deck with outdoor shower. The rooms are designed for spacious comfort. The communal main area is home to a swimming pool and dining area, and is the place to enjoy classic safari cuisine and to share stories of the day sightings over a cocktail or two.
The diversity of the region is explored on game drives led by passionate and experienced guides. There is an abundance of plains game and predators to be viewed on daily drives. This region is known for some of the best lion viewing in Africa. Plains game including the puku, red lechwe, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, oribi, buffalo and wildebeest are commonly seen. Wildlife to keep a keen eye out for as they are occasionally sighted include cheetah and wild dog, as well as a herd of rare roan antelope. There are more than 490 species of bird in the region.
