Experience the magic of the African wilderness at Ku Sungula Safari Lodge. Located in South Africa’s famous Greater Kruger Park, the lodge offers comfort and convenience, while still retaining a romantic and rustic atmosphere. Accommodation at Ku Sungula is made up of safari-style rondavels (round huts), each tastefully decorated and designed to blend in with the surrounding bush. Luxurious interiors feature en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. Each one also has its own private terrace. The main area of the lodge consists of a sparkling pool and cosy campfire area, both perfect spots for enjoying a meal, chatting to fellow guests, and relaxing after an exciting day out on safari in the bush.
Ku Sungula is set within Balule Private Nature Reserve, which is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. The iconic African Big 5 all call the region home. Guided bush walks and sunrise and sunset game drives are offered from the lodge, while the surrounding region provides a smorgasbord of adventurous experiences. Visit the famous Blyde River Canyon, tour the Panorama Route, experience a hot-air balloon trip, go on a boating safari on the Olifants River, or take a day trip to explore the famous Kruger National Park itself. These are just some of the experiences you can expect on a visit to Ku Sungula.
