Located on a huge private concession in the centre of the Busanga Plains, close to permanent water and with easy access to the teeming floodplain, Shumba is named after the area’s large prides of lion.

This luxurious camp consists of six spacious safari tents raised on platforms with spectacular views of the varied landscape of estuaries, grassy plains and island thickets. The dining area is elevated so you can take in the fine vistas and watch the sun rise each morning; dinner is served either here or in the cosy boma with Zambian décor.

The 750 square kilometre concession is a remarkable example of untouched Africa – ensuring seclusion and excellent wildlife viewing in a truly remote setting.

Activities include morning and afternoon-into-evening safaris, as well as boat trips in the early part of the season (June and July).
