Royal Chundu is truly special, beyond my imagination. Every part of it... After exploring the Vic Falls on the Zambian side, the private view Royal Chundu has of the Zambezi that welcomed us through the entrance as we arrived, Hessah’s warm hospitality, Edith’s village and genuine spirit, wonderful Madam Tina, the sunset cruise, the canoe outing and breakfast, the school...

A remote and absolutely beautiful spot off the Zambezi river. The quality of hospitality was unexpectedly high. (Not sure what I was expecting but they outdid themselves!) The polite and friendly staff paid high attention to detail often going out of their way to answer questions, cook food to our liking, reschedule trips to suit us etc. It made for... More

When we flew into Livingstone and realized it was maybe a 45 minute drive to this property, we were a little concerned that it was too remote. After all, we were to drive back into Livingstone the following day for our Victoria Falls tour. However, as soon as we arrived, our fears were instantly put to rest, and I can't... More

Royal Chundu was the perfect place to spend the last few days of our trip. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home, comfortable and special. Hessah and Aggie were always there to answer questions, help us figure out our schedule, make sure we had what we needed and for amusing chats. The rooms were wonderful,... More

We stayed at the end of April for 3 nights in #4 on the Island The entire experience was excellent. We are Vegetarians and the chef just went out of his way to make sure we were well provided for. The food was both local and very true to the Zambian roots of the kitchen. Aggie was a constant delight... More

Sipping wine on a sunset cruise, relaxing in a bubble bath overlooking the Zambezi river, eating like a king, making friends with the wonderful people at Royal Chunda. This is a bucket list detination! You will forever remember your time at Royal Chundu - its life at its best!

Outstanding service and accommodations...book Island Lodge for decadent privacy and attention. Wake to sounds of birds, hippos, lions. Aggie, Michael, Chef Singala and their staffs spare no effort to satisfy your every request. You can be as busy as you wish, or not...plenty of activities or lounge in soaking tub on your private deck. Book "all inclusive" and skip the... More

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
