Our family stayed at the island lodge for 2 nights, and we could not have been more happy. We were spoiled from the minute we set foot on the island. There are staff constantly waiting to take care of you, make sure you are happy, and ready to take care of all of your needs. The food is freshly cooked...

We had the best time at Royal Chendu. We spent 3 nights here and highly recommend. The staff was beyond helpful and nice. The food was amazing and the lodge is beautiful. I highly recommend rafting on the river and taking the sunset cruises at night. Both are awesome experiences. They will even take you on a private tour of...

We knew it would be good, but it was better! Really exceeded expectations in every way. What a gem and absolute labour of love! Love the fact that it is quite far off the beaten track and further than you think when you first turn off. The welcome at the Lodge was incredibly professional, warm and welcoming. Hessah has a...

We recently ended our honeymoon at the Royal Chundu after visiting Cape Town and a Safari in Sabi Sands. We absolutely loved it! We took a helicopter transfer from the airport which included a tour of Victoria Falls. As soon as we arrived, the staff was so kind and welcoming. The food and service here were top notch. We stayed...

This is the best place to visit in Zambia, right on the doorstep of the mighty Zambezi. Best people, best accomodation, best food with the best chef, best resort manager and managares, best waiters and best tiger fishing with best skipper. You are treated here as a KING and don't want to leave. Will definately return in future.

From the moment we arrived, we fell in love with Royal Chundu. The rooms are wonderful with fabulous views of the river. To us, they were an " African "experience. Any minute I thought Robert Redford or Meryl Steep would walk in. There was nothing that the staff could not take care of. It seemed that the staff was there...

We spent 3 nights here during Our 20th wedding anniversary trip. We were spoiled on so many levels, from smiling staff's service (many local), to the beautiful room, to delicious food specific to our vegetarian needs, to exceptional outings on and around the Zambezi River and to Victoria Falls. This place is a bit of heaven, and also importantly is...

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
