Nestled into the game-rich Western Lebombo Mountains in Northern Zululand, lies Sungulwane Private Game Lodge. Inspired by the Zulu word for “the view of the eye” Sungulwane overlooks the exquisite, unspoiled wilderness of the Munyawana Game Reserve.

Sungulwane is an exclusive, Big 5 Safari lodge with just 8 suites consisting of 6 x 2-bed chalets as well as 2 x 4-bed family units all complete with outside showers. One group/family are welcome to book the entire lodge thereby transforming Sungulwane into a real home away from home. Each suite is embedded into the thick Red Ivory forest giving you the feeling of sleeping in the tree canopies – in complete harmony with nature. An extensive private deck with large stack back doors and showers allow for endless stargazing or daydreaming over the uninterrupted views of the valley.

Sit back, relax and sip on an ice-cold G&T while the 31 000 hectares of the Mun-Ya-Wana envelopes you with its tall thickets, grassveld, savanna, thornveld and pockets of dense woodland. This Big Five game reserve borders the iSimangaliso Wetland Park which is a world heritage site and authentically encapsulates the true spirit of Zululand.

The Greater Phinda Game Reserve and the Zuka Private Reserve form part of the Munyawana Conservancy, amongst the largest private protected areas in Zululand. As part of this well established and controlled reserve, Sungulwane offers the epitome of a true wildlife experience.

Sungulwane is situated in the Zuka Private Reserve, one of the three founding members of the Mun-Ya-Wana Conservancy.

The Munyawana is an incredibly diverse conservation area boasting lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, cheetah and leopard. Not to mention an abundance of prolific plains game including impala, zebra, wildebeest, warthog, nyala, bushbuck, giraffe and of course a plethora of birds. It’s particularly famous for its awe-inspiring cheetah sightings.

Whether you choose to watch the sun rise over the mountains, take a leisurely bush walk through the savanna or sit in peace in your very own bird hide… the adventures on offer are endless. Game drives, starlit bush dinners and informative photographic safaris are just a few more activities that are on offer.
