LANDSCAPE OF SHUMBA
Nkwali is dominated by an enormous ebony tree around which the bar is moulded. It is this tree which, when Robin and Jo Pope found it cemented the location of the camp. From the bar deck cantilevered over the river a cool drink can be enjoyed whilst watching the sun set over the Luangwa.
The subtly decorated bush suites with brick walls and thatch roof each have ensuite bathrooms with sunken bathtubs looking out onto your own private corner of Africa. Both the bedroom and bathroom are afronted with large sliding doors leading onto a decked area allowing a lovely breeze into the room and great views onto the river.
Luangwa River Lodge

Shumba Camp is situated in the centre of the Busanga Plains close to permanent water and within easy access of the teeming floodplains. Shumba is named after a favourite species in the area: its large prides of lion that are often seen right next to camp – or even, unusually, in trees.
Tena Tena when translated means “temporary home” and this is the feeling that we have tried to emulate throughout the camp but with a twist of luxury and comfort. The main area moulded around a large termite mound and mahogany tree with an old hippo run adapted into our path between the different levels is shaded by an enormous tent strung up between leadwood poles.
"Safari Lodges, Game Lodges & Tented Safari Camps"
Zambia is a vast country, friendly and peaceful, that offers superb wildlife and cultural encounters.
It is one of the region’s least travelled and most rewarding wilderness destinations. The country boasts the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers as well as Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe.
Livingstone, just 10 km (six miles) from the Falls, is the well-known ‘adventure capital’, offering adrenalin-packed activities on and around the Falls and the Zambezi River. When it comes to wildlife, Zambia offers impressive diversity as well as large concentrations and numbers, and some of the wildest and most remote game areas on the continent. It was in Zambia that the concept of walking safaris originated as the best way of enjoying the rich flora and fauna of the country’s 19 national parks. Birdlife is particularly prolific, attracting birders from all over the world.
