I could have spent many lazy afternoons lying around the camp -- the Ralph Lauren-like stylings, stacks of vintage safari trunks, and leatherback chairs were perfectly safari chic. But more than an Instagram-worthy hotel experience, staying at Zungulila felt like staying at a friend's The staff: charming, gracious, generous, and hospitable. The snacks: thoughtful and beautifully displayed (please note: the kitchen caters to all sorts of allergies and dietary restrictions -- which is remarkable considering we're in the middle of the bush). Amenities: great outdoor shower, daily laundry service (so nice!), and group dinners that were classy and laid-back. The Bushcamp safari guides are my heroes - so smart and patient with all of our questions and fun.
