Sungani Lodge Tours

Derived from a blended Chewa name, Sungani means “keeper or custodian”. The lodge is a luxury wilderness property that has been designed with a focus on privacy and relaxation in the bush. The lodge is built on an elevated deck with all its structures edged by a huge lagoon with indigenous trees. As a family they are dedicated and focused on restoring and protecting African wilderness while delivering an exciting, authentic and memorable experience for their guests.



Sungani Lodge is situated in the southern part of Africa’s remaining hidden gems, South Luangwa National Park, a true wilderness where nature is the queen. The Luangwa Valley enjoys dramatic seasonal changes, lush fertile soils, and the magnificent Luangwa River which attracts multitudes of wildlife with a dense population of leopards. South Luangwa boasts one of the largest hippo populations on earth and other animal species such as leopards, lion, elephant, wild dog and buffalo call this park home. Activities include game drives, bush meals, day trips (on request), water excursions, photographic hides, walking safaris, and more.



Sungani Lodge boasts seven luxurious and tasteful custom designed tents that are set on top of polished concrete floors, a beautiful haven of relaxation. The interior design focuses on comfort and warm colors with a collection of distinctive pieces and details. The Camp has 4x King rooms and 3x Doubles with queen beds. The Directors’ Tent has Wi-Fi, DSTV, Nespresso machine, outdoor sleeping and much more.



Sungani is extremely remote, and they strive to source their food supplies locally to support the local community. Enjoy the a la carte breakfast and grab something freshly cooked straight from the grill at their breakfast bar. The breakfast features a refreshing juice, home-made granola, fruits, jams, local honey, waffles, muffins, pancakes and more. Lunch is served on the main deck with a mix of meat, hearty salads, homemade bread rolls, flavorful condiments all set in a relaxed buffet style. Their dinner menu changes seasonally as they aim to introduce African flavors with locally sourced meat, vegetables, and fresh garden herbs.

  • This is the best safari lodge in Zambia

    And we heartily agree with the professionals. The accommodations at both Sungani and Kulandila were fantastic, as was the quality and amount of food and service by the staff! We were so lucky to experience sights during our two daily safaris that the seasoned guides had not seen in the area. SO many elephants, hippos, and giraffes nearby! It is most impressive how dedicated the family and staff are to the conservation and well-being of the wildlife. An injured elephant was attended to by the vets who flew in within hours of our wonderful and knowledgeable guide Michael seeing it on our last morning safarfi. We were sorry to leave and hope to go back in 2-3 years. The Davy family is providing income for 45 local workers and their families. So heartwarming to see these people love their jobs. And there were surprises we enjoyed immensely.
