Shoebill Island Camp offers accommodation in safari tents under thatch roofs and reed cottages. Each has 2 beds, an ensuite shower and flush toilet. Although Shoebill Island is primarily intended for international visitors, we also welcome local or regional clients and have a campsite nearby for those on a tighter budget. The island has panoramic views over the swamps and gets its name from the Shoebill, which are usually in reach of the camp. Boating can be arranged in banana boats or dugout canoes. March and April offer an amazing watering wilderness for the adventurous with Shoebills often visible from camp! Shoebill Island camp is managed by the Kasanka Trust, and tours are regularly arranged to take visitors on to Shoebill from Kasanka. From each visitor to Shoebill Island a portion of the money raised is used to assist ZAWA in wildlife management and 5% is given to the local Community Resource Board to fund localy driven development and resource management activities. Any remaining surplus revenue is returned to the Trust for charitable use in and around Kasanka.
