Bushcamp Company - Zungulila

South Luangwa

Zungulila is set on the flood plain area above the Kapamba River and is a charming tented camp that embodies the essence of old Africa and a bygone era. With stunning views onto the Kapamba River and an expansive plain where natural springs attract huge herds of game, this is one of the most remote camps in the Bushcamp company collection. 

The camp consists of four spacious tents built under thatch roofs, each with 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.
