Shoebill Island Camp • Bangweulu Wetlands

Shoebill Island Camp is a remarkable destination located in the heart of the Bangweulu wetlands, a pristine ecosystem in Zambia that serves as a sanctuary for over 430 migratory and resident bird species. Among them, the magnificent shoebill stands out as a true spectacle, captivating visitors with its unique appearance and behavior.

In addition to the shoebill, the Bangweulu wetlands are also home to one of the largest populations of wattled cranes in the world, accounting for approximately 10% of the species’ global population. This makes the wetlands a critically important area for the conservation of this endangered bird.

At Shoebill Island Camp, visitors can experience the incredible biodiversity of the wetlands up close, with opportunities to observe and photograph a wide variety of bird species in their natural habitat. The camp’s knowledgeable guides offer insights into the complex ecological relationships that sustain this unique ecosystem, making for a truly unforgettable experience in one of Africa’s most beautiful natural areas.
