Sungani - New lodge and camp in Zambia

The adventure-based luxury destination in Zambia arriving in 2022! Two remote safari properties - Sungani Lodge and Kulandila Camp. Our full website is now LIVE and we invite you to explore.

A passion for Africa and each family member’s unique set of skills have wrought Sungani Lodge and Kulandila Camp. It is a joy to tell you that the majority of what you will find at both properties has been created and hand built by the family and local people, transforming this remote area of the South Luangwa National Park from a state of neglect into something quite extraordinary. The inclusive transfer to the properties is a short 20-minute flight from Mfuwe in the Sungani aircraft.

SUNGANI (suhn-gah–nee) from the blended Chichewa language, meaning custodian or keeper.

Family owned and operated; Sungani Lodge is set in the natural beauty of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park situated on the edge of an enormous lagoon. Sheltered by magnificent indigenous trees, the lodge blends seamlessly into the landscape. Carefully curated interiors showcase a love of raw materials, classic lines and longevity. The entire lodge is built on elevated decking. The relaxed ambiance is complimented by al fresco dining, cosy bar area and lounging areas that melt into the incredible view. Limited to seven luxury custom-designed airconditioned guest tents set atop polished concrete floors offering approximately 1150 square feet indoors with an adjoining deck and private plunge pool.

Kulandila Camp (koo-lann–deelah) to receive or welcome.

A little further upstream is the smaller of the two family owned and operated properties; the beautiful Kulandila Camp. The open-plan main area and adjoining swimming pool enjoy vast vistas of the Luangwa River.

This intimate camp comprises four elevated tents furnished with a combination of gorgeous white linen, teak, brass, and textures to create a colonial feel. The outdoor slipper bath provides an oasis to unravel your thoughts in nature.
