We hoped for a holiday which provided adventure and relaxation; the Royal Chundu more than fulfilled this. We stayed for eight nights, four in the River Lodge and four on the Island Lodge and for the whole time, the management's consideration for our comfort, appetite and well being cascaded down through all the staff to make it a most memorable...

A truly amazing group of people who made our stay at Royal Chundu extra special. The permanent smiles and happiness are a reflection of the whole experience. The food, and in particular the incorporation of the local flavours, is simply out of this world! The setting is beautiful and is brilliantly captured in the Island lodge suites which are true...

we just arrived from our trip. The island suites are very what you would imagine luxury at its best could be. The food was very good. But the best thing the hotel has is the service and staff. They are always looking to help you and exceed any expectations you have. The manager, Age talked with my wife and then... More

We give Royal Chundu five stars! Aggi greeted us like family when we first checked in. And during the boat ride on the mighty Zambezi from the River Lodge to the Island Lodge, they detoured for us to have our first look at an elephant in the wild! The first morning we were awakened by a gong announcing that our... More

This place is terrific! We stayed on the Island...about a 10 minute boat ride away from the main lodge. The rooms were magnificent! The food delicious and the staff gracious. Loved the bubble baths on the deck at night! If you like to be close to things this is not your place. But if you want luxury away from the... More

This is a review of 4 days of extreme happiness. The Royal Chundu is now our family. We were pampered. Treated to incredible natural beauty. The number of activities will surprise you. Aggie, Hessan and the whole group will treat you like kings and queens. I can't really describe this place adequately. It is a paradise. Fantastic food. Local products... More

We recently spent three magical nights at the Royal Chundu Lodge in Zambia. It quite simply doesn't get much better than this. Hassah and his wonderful team looked after our every need and ensured that this trip would be as relaxing and memorable as it could be. The rooms were so comfortable and luxurious and the food was always tasty... More

We were lucky enough to spend a week there. From the moment you are met at the airport to the sad moment when you leave, it is faultless and you are in for a very special time. The wonderful staff are your "family" for the duration. Nothing is too much trouble. Any dietry requirements are catered to, they even do... More

If you are used to 5 star, you will know what to expect. If you are not, you should give the Royal Chundu a try. It very luxurious but remote, with no televisions or clocks. We stayed 4 nights in one of the island lodges, on a channel of the mighty Zambezi. The prepared bubble bath was waiting on the... More

We spent four unforgettable days of our Africa trip in the wonderful ambiance of this hotel. The lodging in the Island Lodge was as good as one could imagine, while the staff service is worthy of nothing but the highest praise. Hassah and Agee, our coordinators, organized our stay perfectly. They satisfied all our wishes, organized on time our excursions... More
