Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, Chundukwa River Lodge offers comfortable accommodation in five traditional thatched chalets.
With five kilometres of river frontage and more than 160 hectares of African bush to explore on foot, Chundukwa offers a relaxing retreat with prolific birdlife. An afternoon river cruise is the perfect way to enjoy the spectacular sunsets and get a closer look at the river inhabitants. With hippos grunting and the glow of the campfire, each day comes to an end with a uniquely African lullaby.
The lodge accommodates guests in open-fronted secluded chalets, each accommodating two people, furnished with rustic yet comfortable beds, a mosquito net, fan and en suite bathroom. All of the chalets are elevated on wooden stilts, offering uninterrupted views of the beautiful Zambezi River. In addition, the comfortable Chundu Cottage accommodates six guests and is ideal for families.
Chundukwa offers the best of both worlds, as it is only a 30-minute drive from Victoria Falls, while being far enough away from the busy hotels and helicopters to allow guests to enjoy the tranquillity and abundant wildlife of the Zambezi River. You can also combine your stay with a visit to Chobe National Park, as the lodge is situated a mere 40 kilometres from the border of Botswana.

Combining perfectly with a safari in Botswana, Zimbabwe or Namibia as well as Zambia, the Zambian side of the falls was once considered to be the ‘poor cousin’, by comparison with the views of the river and the falls from Zimbabwe. The two countries are linked by a spectacular iron bridge above the raging waters.
