A weekend at Royal Chundu River lodge, on the banks of the Zambezi, can not be put into pictures or words too easily. It is a feeling - a feeling of absolute tranquility, rejuvenation and perfection, allowing one to refuel your mind, body and soul. Nothing is ever too much trouble, and there are constant smiles from the wonderful compliment... More

The Royal Chundu was certainly the highlight of our 3 week Africa trip. There are only 8 cabins.....4 at the main lodge and 4 at the Island Lodge about a mile boat ride away. It is about an hour from Livingston and the last several kms are down a bumpy dirt road. But it is totally worth it. The place... More

Zambia was the last stop of our 3 week African journey which included Namibia and Botswana and 6 other very fine camps, such as Selinda and Mombo. After many wonderful experiences we arrived at Royal Chundu not knowing what to expect as our travel agent had booked it for us. What a delightful surprise to arrive (after an hour's drive... More

We stayed at the Royal Chundu Lodge for three nights. It exceeded all expectations for luxury, peace and quiet, and staff helping to make your visit top-notch. There are 4 rooms in the main location and four more villas about a mile away on a private island. If you can, upgrade to the villas! They are huge, have outdoor bathtubs... More

My wife and I spent the first night in the River Lodge and the 2nd at the Island lodge. Both of these are unique in their style and exquisitely beautiful and comfortable. The service, hospitality and food is top quality at both but what makes it so much more lovely is the top class standards maintained by all the staff... More

We stayed at the Island Lodge as our first stop for a month trip in Africa. The room was spacious and exquisitely decorated. Bed was so comfortable it took a great effort to get out of it and carry on with the multiple day activities, but the birds singing at sunrise made the natural wake up experience very pleasant!

The Royal Chundu Island lodge was the most opulent, decadent, and luxurious place I have probably ever stayed. We stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The service was at all times superb. The food and wine quite delicious. The only thing missing from out trip was time to relax. I had stupidly booked out all of our... More

We found our solitude at Royal Chundu. With Tiger fishing at the front door accompanied by the calls of the Fish Eagle and the grunting of the Hippopotamus during the sunset cruise...this natural paradise brings a WOW to every experience. To Aggie, Michael, Sungani, Chef Banda and Kelvin thank you for your ever welcoming smiles and for ensuring that we... More

Everything about Royal Chundu has ‘unique’ written all over it. From the stunning location right on the Zambezi, to the beautiful rooms all facing the river; the attentionate staff and service, the fabulous food, and the soothing boat rides, everything about this place is really special. Don’t try to compare it to other hotels in the region – it is... More
