Wilderness Shumba – Game Drives
On game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, guests may catch sight of the celebrated lion prides of the Busanga Plains, including other predators such as cheetah and wild dogs – plus scores of plains game such as puku, red lechwe, buffalo and wildebeest; perhaps even the rare roan antelope feeding on the fertile grasses.
Wilderness Shumba – Night Drives
Led by a knowledgeable guide, interpretive night drives offer a glimpse into Busanga Plains’ unique, nocturnal world. A diverse range of species may be seen at night, including genet, civet, owls and occasionally the elusive leopard.
Wilderness Shumba – Boating *
Early on in the season, the Busanga Plains are still largely covered by water allowing for exploration of the channels and their life by boat.
* Water levels permitting and mostly at the beginning of the season.
Wilderness Shumba – Birding
Boasting hundreds of species, including the range restricted Fülleborn's Longclaw, birding enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice on a specialist birding safari. The area is alive with rollers, bee-eaters, kingfishers, herons and large flocks of storks, to name a few.
