A remote, classic tented safari camp that delivers an authentic safari experience in eminently peaceful surrounds.


Four spacious tents make up this charming bushcamp that embodies old Africa.

Zungulila’s classic Meru tents are stylish and spacious and the ensuite bathrooms have outdoor showers and enormous bathtubs, allowing you to enjoy your creatures and your creature comfort! Across the camp, the immense views look 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 plains. You may just be tempted to stay forever…


If you long to explore Africa as it used to be, then come to Zungulila. Expert guides will lead you on foot through some of the park's most untouched wilderness, where large herds of buffalo roam and elephants drink along the river. Activities are focused around walking, but there are a number of driving loops in the area to travel further afield on game drives, day and night. In the evening, join your hosts for sundowners around the campfire before recounting the day's adventures over a starlit supper.

An iconic tradition

As the sun sinks below the horizon, there is nothing better than finding a spectacular spot in the heart of the bush for an ice-cold drink and something to nibble on.
