Sungani Lodge

Sungani is a family run and operated venture. 

Sungani Lodge is the most Southerly Camp in the South Luangwa National Park. Just a little further upstream is Kulandila Camp. The properties are 6kms apart by vehicle. 

Due to the very remote location, guests will fly from Mfuwe International Airport to the Sungani airstrip in the Sungani plane - this is approximately a 20-minute flight. Once you arrive it is a 5-minute drive to the lodge. If preferred, collection can be done by road which will take around 3 hours. Sungani is roughly 70 kilometres from Mfuwe Town. 

Sungani Lodge is situated on the edge of a lagoon, sheltered by trees, blending seamlessly into the landscape. The entire lodge is built on elevated decking, allowing guests to safely wander around during the day. 

The main area of the lodge has a variety of living spaces and a pool where your time is uninterrupted and the space is yours to do as you please. The library area provides a space to make use of the charging points - you can download your photos or curl up and read a book. Challenge someone to a game of chess at the antique chess table or just relax with your thoughts. There is a separate WC, gift shop and WiFi (in the common areas). 

The custom designed tents are set atop polished concrete floors to create a cool environment and offer approximately 1150 square feet indoors to relax in. The bathroom has a slipper bath, fluffy towels, fresh soaps and salts.

The camp is limited to seven luxury guest tents comprised of 4 King rooms and 3 Doubles (Queen beds). One double is configured to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. The Directors’ Tent is complete with WiFi, DSTV, Nespresso machine and outdoor sleeping.

Sungani is wheelchair friendly with one caveat being that doorways are 80cm wide.
