Shoebill Island Camp

Shoebill Island Camp can be accessed by charter flight directly or driving (4×4 only). Flying in or out of Shoebill Island, offers the chance of some great aerial game-viewing. 

Shoebill Island Camp is managed by the Kasanka Trust and is five hours drive from the Kasanka National Park. It stands on a small permanent island overlooking a pool in the Lukulu River where herds of black lechwe conregate and shoebill storks are often visible. During the rains, and for a few months afterwards, the camp is surrounded by channels and lagoons. During dry season it is left ‘high and dry’ and is accessible by 4×4 vehicles.

Shoebill Island Camp offers thatched safari tents or reed cottages. Single or double tents are available with en-suite facilities. There is a bar/dining room and a breakfast room that also serves as a lookout point over the wetlands. There is a campsite nearby with ablution facilities. 

Activities at the camp depend on the time of year and water levels. Boating safaris can be arranged in banana boats or dugout canoes, especially during March and April guided walks and drives are available in the plains and surrounding woodlands during the drier months.
