Shamba is a family run, very modern park although the aim remains to create a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere. There are 150 pitches, most used for touring units (45 are on a seasonal basis). Surrounded by trees, the camping area is on flat, open grass with 10/16A electricity available on all pitches. A Scandinavian-style building forms the focal point and here you will find reception, a bar/restaurant, takeaway and a shop. The indoor swimming pool has walls and a roof which can be opened in good weather. The park’s location is excellent for a family holiday on the edge of the New Forest and for visits to the resorts of Bournemouth and Poole.
Within easy reach are the Jurassic Coast, the Sealife Centre and beaches at Weymouth, the Tank Museum at Bovington and Monkey World, as well as the Purbecks and Corfe Castle. Take a trip to Brownsea Island where Baden-Powell started the Scouting movement (don’t forget the red squirrels there).
