Profile

The newest camp in our collection, Zungulila is a charming camp that embodies the essence of old Africa and a bygone era, with breathtaking views onto the Kapamba river and an expansive plain where natural springs attract huge herds of game. Zungulila is eminently peaceful, and you may be tempted to stay forever!

Rooms

Up to eight guests can enjoy the serenity of Zungulila in four spacious tents. Built under thatch roofs, each shaded tent has its own private bamboo veranda with immense views over an impressive variety of wildlife - from thirsty elephant at the springs and flocks of birds on the river, to prowling lion and large herds of buffalo on the grassy plains. With stylish interiors, en suite bathrooms, hot-and-cold running water, outdoor showers, and sunken plunge-pools you can enjoy your creatures and your creature comforts in this classic tented Bushcamp. Two of the tents have twin beds (queen-sized beds), while the other two each have a king bed. Zungulila is open from April to January.

Activities

If you long to explore Africa as it used to be, then come to Zungulila. Our expert guides will lead you on foot through some of the park's most untouched wilderness, where large herds of buffalo roam the grassy plains and thirsty elephants come to drink at the springs and along the river. Activities are focused around walking, but we have opened up a number of game drive loops in the area and so to get even further afield, day and night game drives are also on offer. In the evening, after wading through the river, we invite you to join your hosts for sundowners, or sit around the campfire for a drink, before recounting the day's adventures over a starlit supper overlooking the river.

Loved the stay – far too short. And thanks for being such a wonderful host.

Wonderful experience. We have got the bug to return.

"Great Camp, excellent food and awesome hosting - we felt really welcome and loved being here... sundowners by the fire & cold tubs were a great tonic after a walking safari in the sun!"

Special mention should be made to all managers/hosts/guides at the Bushcamps, especially Alex at Bilimingwe who without doubt is a first class host and gave us some superb surprises including a Pizza oven and fresh Pizzas in the bush, fantastic, and we loved the set up at Bilimungwe the best, although Mfuwe and Zungulila were great too and all staff were top notch, helpful and friendly.

"Zungulila was a dream! We have never been taken better care of - anywhere! The camp was marvelous... the best walking safari guide we have ever met, he lifted the level of the experience into the premier league! Wildlife from the top shelf... an absolute unforgettable experience for a family of five!"
