Everyone here knows how to make you feel pampered. Great food and even a surprise birthday cake. Thanks Hessah, Michael, Steve, Merci, Big Boy, and all the rest. We...

This was our 3rd trip to the amazing Royal Chundu Island Lodge so it goes without saying that we think it is pretty special! It has all been said before - stunning rooms, incredibly well designed & beautifully maintained (& we just love the new décor with its deep blue, white & dark wood design). The setting is magical, the...

Take the time and spend 2-3 nights at this magnificent lodge. Situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, nature abounds. Great activities await you. The staff offers a subtle and always on point way of making you feel at home. Private villas afford the level of privacy you want while gazing at the southern sky and beauty of the...

After two amazing Safari's in South Africa and Zimbabwe we flew to Victoria Falls (Zambia Side) for the last stop on our amazing trip.We were met at the Airport and driven (it's over an hour) to Royal Chundu, an idyllic spot on the Zambezi River. The 25 minutes on the dirt road with nothing to see is challenging but you...

The hotel is absolutely stunning with amazing views of the Zambezi. The staff are exceptionally attentive and go out of their way to make us feel at home.

We hoped for a holiday which provided adventure and relaxation; the Royal Chundu more than fulfilled this. We stayed for eight nights, four in the River Lodge and four on the Island Lodge and for the whole time, the management's consideration for our comfort, appetite and well being cascaded down through all the staff to make it a most memorable...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Royal Chundu Zambezi River Lodge is the kind of place where nature is untouched and you are humbled by the magic that surrounds you. The lodge has two locations – the mainland and the exclusive private island in the center of the Zambezi River. Royal Chundu is a place of picturesque beauty that merges seamlessly with nature and is tucked away in the midst of unique plant species from giant ferns to ancient trees, some as old as 1,500 years. ... more   less
