sungani lodge Zambia


Sungani Lodge is about as in-the-middle-of-nowhere as you could hope to get for a safari retreat. Before 2022, the far south-western part of South Luangwa National Park was fairly untouched. Today, the lodge is a stellar addition to the landscape, echoing the natural tones and textures of the wild with access to nearly 70,000 acres of wilderness and only one other camp nearby.

Within one of Africa’s best game-viewing destinations, South Luangwa, you’ll be able to spot a treasure trove of wildlife as well as some of the most spectacular scenery. Head out on a walking safari down the riverfront with Sungani’s expert guides, or spend an afternoon on a game drive spotting some of the locals: vast herds of elephant, buffalo, hippo and zebra live alongside lion and leopard.


With just seven tents in total, you’ll feel completely in the heart of the wilderness here. The design is simple and understated while remaining luxurious, furnished with elegant natural textures. Each features a private deck, in-and-outdoor shower and bath, private plunge pool, oversized beds and all the comforts you would expect. Elevated off the bush floor, the rooms are linked by wooden platforms so keep an eye out for animals roaming below.

The main lodge has been built around existing indigenous trees and feels like a welcoming family bush home. Thanks to its open-sided design, you’ll be able to sight wildlife in the lagoon below whether you’re enjoying a morning coffee or indulging in some French-style patisserie. Speaking of the food, the cuisine is clean and simple while paying tribute to traditional and seasonal produce. From delicious afternoon tea spreads and evening feasts showcasing African flavors and local produce, whatever you opt for you’ll be dining in style.
