Zungulila Bushcamp is nestled in a natural oasis in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, and with only 4 tents, it’s about as intimate as it gets. Lush greenery and naturally occurring springs attract wild animals throughout the seasons of the year, offering guests a breathtakingly close-up experience of the true African wilderness. This particular slice of the wild is remote, teeming with animals and overflowing with beauty. The camp boasts views of the seemingly never-ending plains, which look like a painting every night as the sunset throws red, fuchsia and gold light over Africa.
At Zungulila, the emphasis is on game viewing and being one with nature. The four tented suites are comfortable and luxurious, ideal for a honeymoon escape. What could be better than being one of only a handful of guests, with personalized service and a tailor-made safari experience.
The camp overlooks the beautiful Kapamba River within the South Luangwa National Park – rivaling some of the most incredible safari areas in Africa. Guests are treated to morning and evening game drives, when predators can be viewed in their natural habitats. Experienced game rangers know exactly how to track the Big 5, birds and other wild creatures. They share experiences of tracking and tit-bits of information about the fauna, flora and medicinal plants in the area.
Zungulila promotes walking safaris in the Luangwa, when encounters with the wild are all the more stunning. See elephants drinking at watering holes on the open plains and watch where buffalo roam. Take a dip in the river and watch different animals as they come to sate their thirst. Some of life’s most exquisite moments are waiting to be experienced here.
Return after a full day’s bush-whacking to cocktails under a bright pink sunset as the sky ripples with colour and makes way for the stars. Catch up with new friends around the bonfire and sit down to a gourmet meal, spiced with flavours from Africa, then raise your glass to the beauty of the sky, earth and stars in the wildest continent in the world.
