It is located in the Busunga Plains lying in the north of the Kafue National Park
; a massive flat area which stretches far and wide and also happens to be one of Zambia's most significant wetland resources. Standing on an island of large, majestic fig trees, Shumba
overlooks the floodplains in all directions. Built high off the ground and linked by wooden walkways, it is quite spread out, yet well camouflaged, with grass roofs helping it to blend into its surroundings. This camp is perfectly situated to take advantage of the plains game and predator concentrations of the Busanga Plains, being situated as it is within close proximity to permanent water and having easy access to a mix of seasonal and permanent floodplains. From various vantage points around the camp you can often see antelope, typically puku, red lechwe grazing the lush grasses below, lion, wild dog and cheetah.
