Lodges Overview

The Ku Sungula Safari Lodge is located in the Balule Private Nature Reserve which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Guests can relax at the swimming pool or the surrounding shaded terrace.

Its rustic, thatched-roof cottages overlook the nearby bush land and floodlit watering hole. Cottage facilities include air-conditioning, private bathroom and a mosquito net.

Typical South African cuisine can be enjoyed in a traditional, open-sided room called a “boma”. A buffet breakfast is served daily. A variety of drinks are provided at the bar.

The lodge offers bird-watching, star gazing and safari experience. The staff at Ku Sungula can assist guests in arranging game drives into the Kruger Park.

Hoedspruit is a 25 minutes’ drive away and the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve is within 72 km.
