Situated on a grassy knoll overlooking wide open floodplains with the Kapamba river in the background, Zungulila bush camp epitomizes the exploring spirit of Luangwa Valley. Remote and intimate, the camp has just four beautifully designed tents, decorated in muted and fitting safari colors, and each with a four poster bed and flowing mosquito nets. Rosewood furniture lends an antique feel, and each tent overlooks either a natural spring or has far-reaching views over the floodplain in front of the camp.
Zungulila’s main area is utterly charming; almost a hotchpotch of different styles, with a wide open front overlooking that incredible view of the plains, and uninterrupted views of a natural spring which flows just below the bank. It’s a perfect spot for game viewing from the comfort of your arm chair!
Activities here focus almost exclusively on walking with your expert guide and his scout – this is serious walking country, with very few roads transecting, meaning the area is utterly pristine, and you really do feel like you are in the middle of nowhere! Walks generally focus around (and often cross) the Kapamba sand river, which attracts a variety of game. Expect stunning vistas, exciting and rewarding bush walks, and wonderful stories around the camp fire at the end of the day.
Zungulila Bush Camp has four spacious and luxurious tents to accommodate up to eight guests. They have thatched roofs to keep them cool and private verandas with stunning views of an impressive variety of wildlife on the grassy plains. The tents are all en-suite, are stylishly decorated, have hot and cold running water, outdoor showers and a sunken private plunge pool. Two of the tents have twin queen-size beds whilst the other two have a double king-size bed.
Location & Directions
Luangwa Valley, Zambia
Located in the remote, southern part of the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. Zungulila is situated on a tranquil bend of the Kapamba River, overlooking the plains in an
untouched area of the Park.
When to go
Zungulila is open from 10th June to 5th January.
Zambia has a moderate to sub-tropical climate with three distinct seasons: from November to March is the Emerald, or the rainy season, April to July is Zambia's winter, when the weather is cool and dry, and August to October is summer, when the weather is hot and dry. In terms of game-viewing, the drier months, meaning a higher concentration of game at the permanent water sources, are a superb time to visit. Alternatively come for some superb bird-watching at the end of the rains.
