Shumba Camp

Busanga Plains, Zambia


Stay at Shumba Camp

Shumba is a stylish camp located in the centre of the beautiful Busanga Plains, placed on the edge of a ‘Tree island’. It has 6 spacious luxury tented suites, all en-suite with an indoor and outdoor shower and all with incredible views of the surrounding plains.

The bar and dining area is shaded by fig trees to escape the mid-day sun, and looks over the wildlife-rich plains, home to a

wealth of game, including lion, wild dog and the elusive cheetah.

Dinner takes places either on the deck under the starry sky, or in the cosy boma where you will witness a little Zambian culture with your meal.

The team at True Travel had a simple brief: to send us on the world’s best family safari. As soon as our boat headed down the Zambezi, it all kicked off; we passed a herd of hippos, a lazy crocodile and a giraffe drinking nonchalantly on the riverbank. A magical experience from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble and if we had any issue that needed resolving, there was always someone on hand to do this. Before and after, they were off the charts – simply an awesome team.
