We have just returned from a three week sojourn that took us through Botswana, Zambia, and Namibia and are thrilled that we got the opportunity to call Royal Chundu River Lodge home for a couple nights. This special place undoubtedly kept our jaws permanently dropped; we enjoyed complete indulgence throughout our entire stay. This included, but was definitely not limited...

For their very first visit to Zambia I wanted to bring my parents to somewhere breathtaking and I am very glad I chose to book 2 rooms at the Royal Chundu island lodge... it offers 4 rooms only, and attentive service. The manager, Husein, really changed a luxurious OK stay into a wonderful experience. If I wanted to be really...

My wife and I spent 3 nights here on our honeymoon. The resort is breathtaking and the staff are incredibly attentive. They go to great lengths to make your stay great. The resort is about an hour west / upstream of the falls built next to a local village. The resort essentially sustains that village economically. Most if not all...

After a transit in South Africa, we ended our trip in the beautiful Royal Chundu Zambezi River Lodge with a view over the Zambezi river. Upon arrival we were greeted with a delicious welcome massage. Every evening enjoyed the sundowner on the boat on the Zambezi. During one of these trips we had the luck to spot a lion and...

Where should I start? Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Aggie. We were seated for a welcome drink and registration before swept away by boat to the Island Lodge to our wonderful villa right on the river. We had a big big deck with bathtub which was drawn during each sun downer cruise to be enjoyed before dinner. I...

We have just returned from an unforgettable weekend at Royal Chundu. From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty and are made to feel like you are part of a very special family.

Three days at Royal Chundu, an hour or so by transfer from Livingstone and Victoria Falls, was a unique and memorable experience. We stayed at Island Lodge which is beautiful. The suites are large and private, surrounded by rich bush and trees, right on the water’s edge. They offer pure luxury, with private decks overlooking the water and an outdoor...

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
