Royal Chundu Lodge



The luxurious Royal Chundu Lodge is set on an exclusive stretch of riverbank on the Zambian side of the beautiful Zambezi river. This family owned and run property offers a tranquil retreat far from the madding crowd. Yet, the stunning Victoria Falls and the adventure that goes with it is located just 30 km upstream. It is also only 30 kms from the Chobe National Park in Botswana. The Royal Chundu has 2 magnificent lodges in the bush – the River Lodge which is located on the riverbank with spectacular vistas and the exclusive Island Lodge which is positioned on the private island of Katambura shaded by baobab and jackalberry trees. The lodge offers activities for all ages including its infinity pool, Floating Spa and exciting Chundu Children’s Club. The gourmet cuisine is both local and international and is served at the restaurant, at a private picnic, on a boat cruise or at a Boma campfire dinner with local song and dance. Chundu means "meeting place of the chief” and the guest service here resembles that of a royal chief.


Royal Chundu is located 30kms upstream from Victoria Falls in Zambia and just 50kms from Livingstone Airport – about an hour’s drive. Livingston is  a 1 ½ hour flight from Johannesburg Airport.
