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.

Had a fabulous time. Great sightings, with a lot of animals and an excellent birding experience. Our guides were truly knowledgeable, experienced and very professional. The manager and his staff were all fantastic and made sure we enjoyed every part of our stay. Accommodation is exceptional! We will definitely be back.

Every day has been filled with new adventures and wonderful surprises! We have seen elapid in the tree it’s been so much fun to go on the Bush walks and game drive. Mahina has been the perfect host, the chefs and has made some of the best food we ever had. Our guides have taken us on a lot of adventures and the team have spoilt us rotten. Thank you.

"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!"
