Shumba Camp has just six large tented suites set on raised wooden decks. Each has a large bed and a living area with comfortable chairs and an en-suite with flush WC and shower. There is also an outdoor shower for those who want to enjoy the delights of showering under a huge star filled sky, while at the front is a private veranda where you can sit and relax reading a book, sipping a chilled drink with your binoculars close at hand to observe passing wildlife and some of the five hundred species of bird which inhabit the area.
This comfortable camp has a pool where you can relax between safaris and a dining lodge and lounge where you can enjoy delicious meals and browse bird books and other publications on the natural history of the area.
Shumba Camp is open between May and the end of November. The game viewing becomes more intense as the dry season advances. November sees the first few thunder storms leading to the rainy season and then, sometime in December waters from Kafue river systems seep onto the plains, making them impassable to vehicles and the area is locked away from then until May.
