This family-run wilderness retreat is inspired by a deep love of Africa. From humble beginnings in 2019, it has grown into one of Zambia’s most striking safari camps. Key to the camp’s success is its relationship with the local community, vital partners in Sungani’s quest to preserve Zambia’s unique environment and share it with visitors from across the globe.
Laid out along the banks of a lagoon just off the Luangwa River, Sungani’s seven luxury tents are perfectly positioned for laid-back wildlife spotting, with expansive decks and private plunge pools where you can relax and watch the region’s bountiful array of animals and birds drinking and bathing in the waters around you. Arranged on raised platforms, the custom-designed tents offer plenty of space both inside and out. Interiors are dressed in understated, earthy tones and equipped with unique pieces of furniture handcrafted from rough-hewn local wood.
Your tent will be a welcome refuge, but it’s out in the wide-open spaces of the Luangwa National Park that Sungani really comes alive. Game drives in customised safari vehicles will take you out onto the plains with experienced local guides, in search of the elephants, antelopes and big cats that call this unforgettable place home. During the season when the rains fall and sun-baked scrub turns an emerald green, boat trips on the waters of the Luangwa and its tributaries reveal wallowing hippos, lurking crocodiles and huge flocks of migrating birds. Travel at a slower pace on a walking safari to experience the unique and infinitely varied ecosystem surrounding Sungani at ground level, or take up position in one the camp’s wildlife hides to snap that perfect shot and preserve your memories for a lifetime.
