Shumba, literally translated, means lion because it is situated at the place of lions on the Busanga Plains. Huge, shady fig trees provide the setting for Shumba, with its distinctive, high viewing platform overlooking the flood plain. From here, the sight of large buffalo herds and rare lechwe, intermingled with puku, Crested and Wattled cranes, is one you will not forget.
Simple and welcoming, the camp offers itself as an outstanding safari base. The Plains are unique, a paradise for birds converging here to mate, knowing the area is not easily accessible to man. So much animal and bird life flourishes here throughout the year. They are drawn to the Plains by its life sustaining waters. Hard on their heels come the predators, the lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs and hyenas. The chances of seeing these cats in action are always good.
There are four individual chalets built of local materials in sympathy with their setting, each with separate toilet facilities and star-lit showers.
