Property Details

Shumba Bush Camp Tents

Just six spacious luxury tents comprise Shumba Bush Camp. Each tent boasts a gracious four-poster bed as its centerpiece. Furthermore, en suite baths feature both an indoor and open-air shower accented by rustic bronzed fixtures. These complement the calm natural palette found throughout camp. Perched on a tree island in the center of the Busanga Plains, Shumba’s tents come raised on wooden platforms. They therefore offer incredible views of the surrounding landscape and its hundreds of red lechwe, puku, roan, and oribi.

Shared Spaces

The elevated main tent of Shumba enjoys an endless view of the peaceful surrounds. Sample cocktails at the bar, and take in meals on the deck or in the boma. Additionally, take a dip in the swimming pool. No matter the location, the glistening wildlife-rich grasslands and African sky full of stars come in full view.

Activities at Shumba

Meaning “lion”, Shumba was named after the various lion pride territories that make their home in the area. Indeed, the Busanga Plains provide some of the best lion viewing in Africa. You will no doubt see many lions roaming in and around camp. In fact, the permanent water sources surrounding Shumba mean both plains game and predators are drawn to the area each dry season. Plus, you can find amazing animal encounters just a short drive from camp. Spot red lechwe, zebra, buffalo, puku, wild dog, lion, cheetah, and plentiful bird life nearby.

While at Shumba Bush Camp, embark twice daily on safaris and Zambia’s classic “foot safaris.” For added adventure, visit the bush denizens on a thrilling night drive. Guests of Shumba have the benefit of a comprehensive guided experience, and all excursions are accompanied by trained professionals who are passionate about the area they call home. Some of the most exclusive wildlife hot air ballooning also exists here and makes for quite the unforgettable birds-eye view spectacle. Book this Kafue, Zambia camp today.
