12507260 995506117188004 3055301238259856899 nSituated 25km from the historic town of Livingstone, the lodge provides easy access to the spectacular Victoria Falls but is also far enough away to make it the perfect, tranquil retreat from bustling tourists and the frenetic pace of modern life.

Five totally secluded thatched chalets, built on wooden stilts, boast uninterrupted views across the river. Each chalet sleeps two while the comfortable Chundu Cottage is ideal for a family getaway and accommodates six.

Chundukwa is a bird and nature lover’s paradise with a stable of 20 horses and 100-plus bird species, including the reclusive African Finfoot, finding a home on the property’s splendid grounds. Experience close encounters with elephants during the dry months and fall asleep to the sounds of the wild at night.

Create your own bespoke itinerary from a range of exciting activities including sunset cruises, cultural village tours, specialty bird walks, horse trails, visits to the Falls, fishing and White Rhino safaris.

Zambian-born owners Gail and Doug constantly go out of their way to provide one-on-one service to each guest, giving the lodge an intimate and special charm, and ensuring that a stay at Chundukwa River Lodge is guaranteed to be an unforgettable one.

“Experience the Zambezi at its finest from the comfort of your private hideaway”

The most striking feature of the chalets is undoubtedly their unique open-fronted layout, offering breathtaking views over the Zambezi.

Each room is equipped with a private bathroom, full-sized mosquito net, dressing gowns, fans, lock-up safe, electric blankets in the winter, hairdryer and local organic bath products. All rooms can be adjusted to suit double or twin beds.

Overlooking the Zambezi River is the lounge and dining area. Enjoy a sundowner in the rock plunge pool or simply sit back, relax and watch the sun’s reflection drift across the glistening river.

Take a walk around our beautiful lagoons and indigenous grounds where 100-plus species of bird can be spotted, or visit our stable of 20 horses. During the dry months, get acquainted with our special guests; a herd of African elephants who frequent the camp to feed and bathe.

In the evenings it’s time to huddle around the crackling bush fire and share stories with fellow travellers. We have a passion for home cooking and pride ourselves on our delicious food and impeccable service. Our products are locally sourced from our own garden and neighbouring farms. Guests have the option to dine at the restaurant under a blanket of stars, or privately.

Either way you’re likely to be serenaded while you eat by our resident pair of Wood Owls and the distant calls of hyena, jackal and lion – echoing across the water from the Zambezi National Park.

Tea and coffee are served in your room every morning in traditional Zambian style. Our laundry service is complimentary.

Should you want to connect to the outside world, there is Wifi available.
