Zungulila Bushcamp - The Bushcamp Company
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Zungulila meaning to "go around" or "meander" was a perfect spot for myself and 5 friends. Zungulila was far enough from any other camp to feel truly "away from it all". An old Africa feel to camp, gorgeous setting, plunge pools to dip in during the hot months, fantastic meals, and incredible service. Julius was a perfect host and Meshek the best wildlife guide! Words can't describe the beauty of the sundowners!

We stayed two nights at Zungulila and couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was incredible. Anything you needed they were there to assist. The food was delicious and the location was spectacular. Coming from the lodge to the bush was an experience that became one of the best and most enjoyable events of the entre trip. You were treated like royalty and not one detail was missed. Great safari's and again the most knowledgeable guides in Zambia. Dining under the stars every night provided a setting the was majestic. Do not pass up this part of the trip.

This bushcamp had a special feel
Tranquil but still bursting with all the wildlife you would hope to see and hear.
We had elephant roaming close to our tent... And all the bird life you would hope to see
Our guide Mishek was a wealth of knowledge and the quality if the food was to die for.. The best cheesecake I have ever had

You must try this experience.. You won't be sorry

I loved everything about Zungulila, the location is stunning and the décor gives the camp so much character. I had a wonderful afternoon in camp relaxing on the deck while watching four bull Elephant going about their business less than one hundred meters away. The game drive was fantastic seeing the three Lionesses is something I will never forget, the whole experience of being so far out in the bush and seeing no one else is brilliant. The food was delicious and the staff were great. Staying at Zungulila is the best experience I has during my travels in Africa.

We had a three bush camp trip and Zungulila was certainly the most glorious of the three camps. It has the most marvellous Edwardian ambiance and the interiors of the tents are pure charm, subtly coloured kelims and pewter soap dishes, old travelling writing desks and trunks, but oh such comfy beds....and the magical plunge pool to sit and watch elephants go by. Pure joy. great service, beautiful birds and big beasts!

We stayed for 3 nights at Zungulila and enjoyed every minute. All the staff were extremely welcoming and went out their way to make sure that our stay was the experience of a lifetime. The food was outstanding and the "tent" superb. We visited in October when the temperatures around midday were about 40 degC so the plunge pool was exactly what was needed to cool off. Special mention must go to the Camp Manager, Oli, who was a great host, and to our Guide, Mishek, who is one of the most knowledgeable individuals I have ever met.

Come to Zungulila - you will not be disappointed!
