How to find us


We are located close to Lion’s Point on the Sangilo Peninsula which is along the M1 between Chitimba and Chilumba. Keep your eyes peeled for our signpost and when you see it turn off the main road and onto the dirt track. Once you’re on the track you have a 1km walk/drive/ride to Sangilo Sanctuary through the local village offering you great views of the lake and the mountains beyond.
