HERO Sungulwane

Sungulwane Private Game Lodge

Discover Sungulwane Private Game Lodge

Sungulwane is a safari lodge located within the Zuka Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s Zululand region. Not only do you see sightings of Africa’s Big 5 but the other iconic species such as cheetah, giraffe, zebra, impala, and hippo. The 8 suites are embedded into the thick Red Ivory Forest offering the feeling of sleeping in tree canopies.

The lodge has a contemporary African design and architecture. There are 6 2-bed suites and 2 4-bed family suites all with inside and outside showers. Each also has an extensive private deck allowing for endless stargazing or daydreaming over the uninterrupted views of the valley. Game drives, starlit bush dinners and informative photographic safaris are just a few activities that are on offer. When you aren’t involved in an activity, you can sit in peace in the bird hide, watch the sun rise over the mountains or enjoy a therapeutic spa treatment in your suite.
