Tembe is home to The Big Five including some of Africa's bigest Tuskers. Also there are more than 340 bird species and myriad of other plants and animals. It is a world of hot silence and white sand, where the busy modern world ceases to exist and only the rising and setting of the sun marks the passage of time. It is also the ancestral home of the Tembe people
Tembe Elephant Park is a place where wild elephants still roam, and part of the legendary Ivory Route where the great tuskers still tramp their ancient pathways through dense sand-forest and tall yellow grass. The park is a 300 square kilometer reserve between Zululand and Mozambique, home to some of Africa's largest elephants as well as the smallest antelope, the suni.
Nestled into the game-rich Western Lebombo Mountains in Northern Zululand, lies the Sungulwane Private Game Lodge. Inspired by the Zulu word for “the view of the eye”, Sungulwane overlooks the exquisite, unspoiled 30000 hectares wilderness of the (Mun-Ya-Wana) Munyawana Game Reserve. Sungulwane is an exclusive Big 5 Safari lodge with just 8 private chalets. It’s the ultimate intimate African bush experience 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 Munyawana is an incredibly diverse conservation area boasting lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, leopard and the occasional wild dog. Not to mention an abundance of prolific plains game including impala, zebra, wildebeest, warthog, nyala, bushbuck, giraffe and of course a plethora of birds.
