Zungulila Bushcamp

Luangwa Valley

This luxury safari camp lies above a natural spring overlooking the Kapamba River and floodplains, in remote south of South Luangwa National Park, and combines old-world charm with modern comforts and mesmerising views.

Zungulila provides four spacious and elegantly appointed thatched roof tents designed for maximum privacy and comfort. Each one comes with a delightful veranda with a plunge pool, the perfect spot for sipping a glass of champagne as you watch buffalo roam the grassy plains.

Start the day with a walking safari along the river for the chance to spot lion, hippo and a huge variety of other wildlife; back at the camp cool off in your plunge pool as you admire the views; and later relax by the campfire and enjoy a delicious supper under the stars.

Zungulila is open from April to January.
