We LOVED our stay at KuSungula! We spent 4 nights there as part of our honeymoon and it was the highlight of our trip to South Africa. Miriam was a huge help in terms of booking everything--coming from the US, there was so much safari lodge info online that I felt overwhelmed with options, but via email she helped us...

Manager Miriam and her team make this an excellent stay, attention is given to the little details. The game drives were super, thank you to guide Oupa. This lodge is away from the rush of daily life, waking up early to the sounds of nature and at the end of the day, after an excellent meal in the boma, one...

We came to Ku Sungula as part of our honeymoon and it was our first stop in the Greater Kruger Park area. We had an incredible time staying here, It's absolutely beautiful. Well laid out grounds, amazing accommodation, great food and lovely people. We would suggest this place to any of our friends.

Makes you really think your in the african bush. Loved the game drives with Bert and Oupa and also the bush walks with Adele. The Braai was also nice and cosy with the fire. Good service and it's also nice that it is so close to Kruger. Had a lovely time at Ku Sungula!
