Royal Chundu Lodge truly offered the best of all worlds with their unbeatable location along 15 kilometres of private waterway all to ourselves on the famed Zambezi River, home to hippos, crocodiles, otters and abundant bird life. The proudly Zambian lodge is a distinguished member of Relaix & Chateaux, an exclusive collection of the world’s finest hotels and gourmet restaurants....

I'm not sure there are enough superlatives to describe our stay (a friend and me) at Royal Chundu. We did this at the end of a 2 week trip to Zambia, and it was a great way to end the trip. Yes it is about an hour ride from the airport, but you need to do that to get to...

Royal Chundu far exceeded expectations. Our gorgeous thatched cottage on the Mighty Zambezi was decorated in opulent colonial style with impeccable service from Aggie and her staff. You are awakened each morning with coffee in your cottage served on antique silver pieces. A lovely presentation. You can relax by the beautiful infinity pool or take part in the many activities...

We were at the end of a 3 week trip to South Africa and Zambia and were tired. We had selected Royal Chundu because it is located far enough from town to avoid the tourist traffic yet close enough to allow us to take in Victoria Falls. The resort is 5 star in every aspect: the food, the staff, the...

The magic of the Zambezi from a super luxury and incredibly serviced experience. Wonderful service with nothing left wanting. Rooms are impeccable with wonderful small pleasant surprises... All with a wonderful smile. Staff could not do more to make the stay more pleasant. Hessah and Aggie are incredible hosts. As is Emmanuel

If you are looking for a luxury, yet somewhat more immersive experience in Africa, then the Royal Chundu is the perfect place for you. We originally thought about staying at The Royal Livingston, which we visited and found quite wonderful, but it felt like an American or British hotel dropped in the middle of Victoria Falls. The Royal Chundu is...

Royal Chundu is my absolute favourite destination. The warmest of welcomes, impeccable service and total luxury, this place is unsurpassed.Built on the banks of the Mighty Zambezi, the Island lodge is heavenly. The food is michelin quality- so much care goes into everything.

Wonderful time as a family (with two young boys) and friends, who are experienced nature guides. Excellent birdwatching (Vasco is a great guide and knows his birds well) with the kids fishing and busy with their own guide (Chundu kids club). Great fun, wonderful surroundings and very comfortable.

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
