We spent two nights here and loved the tree house and view of the Zambezi River. Food is fantastic and the staff couldn't have been nicer. I highly recommend staying here if you are going to see Victoria Falls and go on game drives in the park.

We stayed in this lodge for three nights having flown in from the Kruger park in South Africa. The people here are absolutely charming and I would come here again only because of that. The lodge seems to have lost its shine and is in need of an update. I say update, it's really only cosmetic. The manager informed us...

Just returned from a wonderful family vacation at the beautiful Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma. From our greeting at the airport to the departure, everything exceeded our expectations. We felt so fortunate to have Luckson as our guide. He was so knowledgeable, helpful, and went the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of.

The location, food, staff and ambiance of this lodge is fantastic.However we were unlucky enough to be there along with a group of 18 who completely took over the lodge and this diminished the experience for other guests. The managers and staff did a great job to try to overcome this and we were moved to a Chuma House that...

If you have been to another Sanctuary Resort this one will live up to the high standard. The place is amazing. Most days we were visited by elephants either in the camp or the next island. The hippos would come out at night on the resort. The area is just beautiful. The pool overlooking the river was very relaxing. The...

Our travel arranger insisted we stay in Chuma 2, a two bedroom house with private chef, butler, and housekeeper. It was the perfect last stop for our second trip to Africa. The service was outstanding and the accommodation was wonderful, a great place to unwind after a hectic photo safari. We enjoyed home cooked meals on our spacious deck with...

We visited in August 2016 as part of a set of educationals to Livingstone lodges. Sussi does not disappoint one bit. Of the well known and reputed Livingstone lodges, it is the best value for money by far. It's close enough to the town to enjoy the activities that involve the Falls and the river but far away enough, to...
