The Zambezi’s swift-moving waters lap at the wooden stilts supporting the chalets at Chundukwa River Lodge. Found on the 300-acre Chundu Farm only 25km upstream from Victoria Falls, you can enjoy panoramic views of the river and the lodge’s serene location.
The Zambezi not only feeds the largest waterfall on earth but also hides the mighty tigerfish and an impressive array of bird species that flock to the lush bushes and overhanging trees along its banks. This area provides endless entertainment for families, daredevils and outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you're seeking to experience Victoria Falls, adrenaline-inducing adventures, or simply a tranquil bush experience, Chundukwa can put together an itinerary tailored to you.
Popular activities include game drives, day trips to the Falls, horse riding, river cruises, white water rafting, and helicopter rides. You can also embark on a guided walking safari in local Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in search of the rare and endangered White Rhinos. Stand on top of Victoria Falls at Livingstone Island and swim in the Devil’s Pool, right on the edge of the Falls. Venture to the base of Victoria Falls and swim in the rock pools below the Falls. Visit the Elephant Cafe to mingle with a resident rescued herd of elephants over gourmet bush cuisine on the banks of the Zambezi. Or take a zip line across the Gorge, with the Zambezi below you!
Nestled in lush riverine vegetation, five totally secluded thatched suites boast uninterrupted views across the river. Built on wooden stilts and named after gorgeous local birds,
they are romantic and luxurious, a perfect retreat for honeymooners and couples. There's also Chundu Cottage, where friends and family can unwind in one double en suite room as well as an upstairs loft with space for two guests and a young child. There's a private swimming pool, sundeck, and a large veranda. The cottage has its own staff of a chef, waiter and housekeeper to ensure your privacy. Between activities such as horseback rides, birding or an excursion to Victoria Falls, a dip in the swimming pool will provide much-welcome refreshment on sunny afternoons. Wi-Fi is available and the lodge also offers a laundry service. The kitchen at Chundukwa River Lodge goes out of its way to produce mouth-watering meals. All products are from the area, garden or neighbouring farms to ensure freshness and quality. You can dine either at the restaurant or in the bush. Expect wake-up tea or coffee served in your room each day followed by breakfast on the scenic deck overlooking the Zambezi.
