Shoebill Island Camp

An iconic camp on a wetland wilderness

Nestled in a grove of trees on the high flood line of Bangweulu wetland, Shoebill Island Camp’s main area opens onto the vast plains filled with black lechwe and flocks of diverse water birds. Recently rebuilt, today’s camp is located on the west side of a small island and repositioned to maximize views from the comfortable lodge deck. Each of the camps 4 tents (2 double, 2 twin) is appointed with the most luxurious linens and necessary comforts.  Designed to appeal to a broad audience of "not just birders", Shoebill offers walking, deep hull (photographic) canoeing and mokoro as well as genuine and impromptu community visits with the seasonal fishermen of the region. The Shoebill Guardian program ensures that Shoebills are nearly always discovered, and in particular during nesting season (June to October). Ideal for small groups on private use as well.
