Shoebill Island Camp

Vintage A lodge or tented camp with very good food and service, and many have swimming pools. The rooms/tents are of good size but perhaps not as large as "Classic" properties. Facilities could be "Classic," but located in a sub-standard game viewing area.

Shoebill Island Camp is tucked away in indigenous thicket and faces out onto the Bangwelu wetlands. The camp features 4 comfortable tents each with en suite facilities with rain shower heads, cold/hot water on demand and flush toilets.  The main area overlooks the floodplains and features an intimate bar area and dining room with three seating areas and a fireplace.

Activities include canoeing through the swamps, walking and game drives. For enthusiastic visitors, walking in the swamps is also an option for better views of the iconic Shoebill and possibly, a Shoebill nest. Being the only camp in Bangweulu, you are guaranteed an exclusive experience in the remote expanse of the Zambian wilderness.
