Kulandila Camp

Kulandila Camp is situated a little further upstream than it's sister property, Sungani, and owned and operated by two families; 

Set amongst the towering Lala Palms and lush vegetation, you can look up and feel a true sense of peace. The open-plan main area and adjoining swimming pool enjoy vast vistas of the Luangwa River.

This intimate camp comprises four elevated tents furnished with a combination of gorgeous white linen, teak, brass, and textures to create a colonial feel. The outdoor slipper bath provides an oasis to unravel your thoughts in nature.

A passion for Africa and each family member’s unique set of skills have wrought Sungani Lodge and Kulandila Camp. It is a joy to tell you that the majority of what you will find at both properties has been created and hand built by the family and local people, transforming this remote area of the South Luangwa National Park from a state of neglect into something quite extraordinary. The inclusive transfer to the properties is a short 20-minute flight from Mfuwe in the Sungani aircraft.

Sustainable tourism must be the goal to ensure that the wherewithal needed to conserve and protect is available to continue to improve the lives of all. The aim is to give guests new knowledge through experiences and in turn allow a deeper appreciation of what their contribution makes possible. Sungani aim to bring an experience that is unhurried, authentic and deeply emotive. 

Our menus are created from the Sungani kitchen and again, we aim for simple and locally sourced wherever possible. We will accommodate any dietaries or nutritional requirements. Please advise your agent or our reservations team in advance.

The bar opens mid-morning and serves a cocktail/mocktail menu, fine wines, beers, and spirits. There is a tea and coffee bar where you can help yourself or one our team will be able to assist you throughout the day.

The main area backs on to the lagoon and faces the Luangwa river. There is an adjoining swimming pool and viewing decks with vast vistas of the Luangwa. With an al-fresco style dining area, we incorporate comfy living spaces and a cozy bar area.  Large leather chairs, colonial style furniture and brass finishes transport you to real, authentic safari.

Four elevated tents are linked by distinct pathways which allow you to meander to communal areas.   The traditional safari style tents offering approximately 460 square feet of indoor floor space are set on a wooden platform with an adjoining veranda.  The combines with gorgeous white linen, textured cushions and oiled teak furniture.  The outdoor slipper bath provides an oasis to unravel your thoughts and soak in the sights and sounds of the nearby river.  Each tent is made up on single beds, which are combined to form a king configuration and can easily be separated for a twin setup.

 We know when you are on safari, there are many things worth getting out of bed for, but we want you to feel at home with us. Enjoy the comforts of your room – take a nice long bubble bath while you soak up the sights and sounds.
