Every dry season, Zambia's Busanga Plains flood with hungry antelope - and hungry lions follow. At Shumba Camp, you'll watch this unforgettable drama between predator and prey unfold up close.

With an expanse of red sky above, a sea of golden grass below, and roaming animals in every direction, Shumba Camp at daybreak is practically biblical in its untouched beauty.

As a guest at Shumba (meaning "lion"), you'll start every morning by rolling out of your plush four-poster bed and taking a warm shower from either your tent's en-suite bathroom, or with the clouds directly overhead in the outdoor stalls.

Meals at Shumba Camp are often prepared over an open fire and served in luxuriously detailed dining and viewing decks. There's no need to take a break from watching the wildlife just because you're eating.

During the day, the knowledgeable guides of Shumba take you out on unforgettable excursions into the African veldt. In addition to swathes of migrating antelope crossing the plains, you'll be sure to see lions prowling, wild dogs, lone cheetahs, even hippo families in the watering holes.

You'll find that no two days in the wild is ever the same at Shumba Camp.

Like most quality safari sites, Shumba Camp takes a bit of effort to reach. Located in the heart of the Busanga Plains, which are found at the northern tip of Kafue National Park, the camp is best reached by charter flights, which are available near Lusaka, Kasane, Livingstone, and Victoria Falls.
