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. It’s particularly famous for its awe-inspiring cheetah sightings.
The second leg of the safari is at the iSimangaliso Wetland Park which was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site (UNESCO) in December 1999 in recognition of its superlative natural beauty and unique global values. Situated in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, this Wetland Park covers an incredible 332,000 hectares. iSimangaliso means “a place of wonder, miracles and wildlife.” It is the largest Estuarine system in Africa (St Lucia Estuary) that supports more than 520 bird species including seasonal migrants.
