We chose this game lodge because of its small size and its close proximity to many of the parks, and were pleasantly surprised by its large offerings and idyllic setting. Sungulwane is situated in its own private game park which is loaded with buck, zebra, white rhino... we even saw a newborn giraffe! The scenery and sunsets were spectacular. The lodge is open and airy with a deck that overlooks a watering hole where animals gather in the evening. Our hosts were very helpful in organizing trips into the bigger parks (Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Reserve and St Lucia Wetland Park) and were full of recommendations for smaller excursions (Zulu Cultural Village, Emdoneni Lodge Animal Rehab Center). They also provided us with phenomenal meals... the dinners were fabulous! The only drawback of this beautiful lodge was our small, unspectacular room.
