Overview

Shumba Bush Camp lies on the legendary Busanga Plains in the far north of Zambia's wild Kafue National Park, home to thousands of red lechwe, puku, stately roan and sable antelopes as well as the diminutive oribi and duiker. You'll also find Defassa waterbuck, herds of tsessebe, hartebeest, zebra and buffalo. This wealth of game is naturally a big attraction for predators - leopards, wild dogs, cheetah and prides of lion are all found in the area.

Needless to say, Shumba Bush Camp places great emphasis on its wildlife experiences which are led by qualified, passionate guides with an in-depth knowledge of the area and its fauna and flora. Prepare to enjoy day and night game drives, walking safaris, guided canoe and boating trips as well as fishing excursions. The birdlife in this area is quite extraordinary and a guided walking safari is the best way to spot as many of the 400 recorded species as possible.

A little peace of heaven on earth, in the remote Busanga Plains. I loved sitting on the deck in the afternoon watching the wandering game!
