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, guests can enjoy panoramic views of the river and the lodge’s serene location while being only half an hour from all the exciting attractions in this quiet nook of Zambia.
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 – from game drives and white water rafting to microlight flights and horse trails.
The lodge’s five Chalets and one Cottage tell tales of rustic comfort and utter seclusion. Up to 100 different bird species have been spotted in one day on the farm, best viewed from your verandah over morning coffee and tea. River cruises and fishing trips are popular pastimes while evenings around the campfire will see guests being served home-cooked meals and serenaded by the calls of waking lion and black-backed jackal. We recommend that you add a visit to Cape Town and Kruger National Park to your Southern Africa itinerary for the best experience.
