The camp's central areas lie beneath the protection of ancient fig trees. From here, guests can enjoy gazing across these seemingly endless African plains, admiring the many rare antelope endemic to the region and the predator species to which they provide sustenance.
Shumba Camp consists of six luxurious tented suites built on wooden decks. Each unit is en suite, and all have indoor and outdoor showers. The suites are spacious, and no detail has been overlooked in their tasteful decoration. Viewing decks look out over vast plains crisscrossed by a myriad of channels.
Shumba's activities include daily and nightly open 4x4 safaris focused on interpretive game viewing. You will likely spot vast herds of buffalo, wildebeest, and lechwe on these safaris. These plains also provide habitat to rare antelope like puku and roan. Lions and cheetahs are the predators most frequently spotted. From Shumba, guests can enjoy one of Africa's most exclusive hot-air ballooning safaris.
