Shoebill Island Camp stands on the edge of Zambia's Bangweulu Wetlands - an enormous flooded wilderness of low islands, reed-beds and shallow lagoons. Surrounding this is a wide band of short-grass floodplains, and beyond are forests. The wetlands are home to lots of wildlife and a scattering of local fishing communities. Bangweulu is a unique destination; it is fascinating for wildlife enthusiasts and Africa-philes, but travel here is not always easy, so it's not ideal for a first safari.

Our view of Shoebill Island Camp

Shoebill Island Camp is a very simple bushcamp and is not luxurious by any means, however it is the perfect spot for travelers who have done other safaris before and want a completely different, offbeat experience. It is great for serious bird enthusiasts as well as those who wish to see the rarer back lechwe and other plains game found in this area. It is usually best visited in combination with the camps in the nearby Kasanka National Park, Wasa Lodge and Luwombwa Lodge.
