Then we felt the magic. From extraordinary wildlife encounters to vast untouched tracts of wilderness, we offer you the ability to disconnect in order to reconnect with yourself and with nature. To get to know the wonderful, warm Zambian people: their heritage and culture. The build started in early 2019 with a clea mission to preserve the area. To create a home that worked within nature, a space for the family to unite their collective love for the bush and share it with others.
The Luangwa valley can be found at the end of Africa’s Great rift valley in North Eastern Zambia. Zambia itself remains one of Africa’s hidden gems, a true wilderness where nature is queen. Real Africa.
The Luangwa River begins its 770km life in Lilonda and the Mafinga hills, North East Zambia forming one of the major tributaries of the mighty Zambezi river. Its elevation decreases and therefore it becomes a meandering ever changing river, with an expanse of oxbow lakes (known as Luangwa Wafwa’s) and many historical flood plains. This in turn creates a stunning array of different habitats owing to the valley’s dense wildlife populations. The valley floor itself covers an impressive 52,000 square kilometres or 20,000 square miles, of which the South Luangwa National Park covers a vast expanse of this area 9,050 square kilometres of exquisite, wild, and untouched wilderness. The history of the park dates back as far as 1904 when it was known as Luangwa Game Park and 1972 game reserves were transitioned into National Parks.
As the Luangwa flows further south through the National Park past Mfuwe and down to the southern reaches of the park you will find the Lusangazi sector. Here you will find yourself in the remote and exclusive paradise that is Sungani Lodge and Kulanidla Camp.
