Welcome to Chundukwa!

Situated on the grassy banks of the Zambezi River just 25km upstream from the mighty Victoria Falls, Chundukwa offers the best of both worlds when visiting the Victoria Falls-only 30minutes drive away, however far enough from the busy hotels and buzzing Helicopters to provide a real retreat for the mind and soul.

Here you will find a fabulous array of birdlife (over 450 species at the last count) and stunning views of the Zambezi River from our elevated open-fronted Chalets and Family cottage. An afternoon River Cruise is the perfect way to enjoy our spectacular Sunsets and a closer look at the River inhabitants. With Hippo grunting and campfire glowing, each day comes to an end with a uniquely African lullaby.

With a maximum of 16 guests in camp, you are sure to find personalized service and helpful advice on planning your stay in this beautiful corner of Zambia. We hope to see you soon!

The lodge is surrounded by an abundance of plant and birdlife which can be enjoyed from the swimming pool deck. Sightings of Hippo and elephant here is common. Guests can also enjoy the gorgeous view of the river from the lounge and dining area.

Our lodge is built in local fashion and blends perfectly with its surroundings, providing guests with supreme comfort and privacy. All our chalets have uninterrupted river views, mosquito nets, fans and private bathrooms.

There are 5 open-fronted stilted chalets (including 2 Honeymoon Chalets) and 1 family cottage which sleeps 6. The Family cottage has 2 en-suite bedrooms and a third kids bedroom with bunkbeds, a lounge, dining area, plunge pool, deck and private chef and waiter. It is your home away from home.

Families are very welcome to stay at the lodge, however the open-fronted nature of the chalets and dining area is not suitable for children under 5 years.

Families with children under 5 years can be accommodated in our family cottage which is set 20metres back from the River but still has great views.
