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

Royal Chundu was the perfect ending to a brilliant holiday. We were greeted on arrival by Hessah, who has perfected the art of good service to a ''T". During our welcome he went through activities, events, diet, spa treatments and within hours we had a full itinerary. From river rapids to helicopter rides, everything was fuss free for us. I...

We stayed at the River Lodge for 3 days in late February. What a wonderful experience! The entire staff was remarkable. We especially enjoyed the sunset cruises and the many excursions arranged for us. A tour of the falls, a Chobe river safari and the village tour are experiences we won't soon forget. The accommodations were beautiful and the food... More

We stayed here three nights and everything was just perfect. The lodge itself is situated right by the waters edge, where you can see hippos and other wildlife from the property. The common areas are beautifully appointed, and the rooms spacious and luxurious, with a deck overlooking the river. The service is impeccable and friendly. They even provide an African... More

WOW!! This place was absolutely AMAZING!! We couldn't ask for more! We stayed at the Island Lodge for 4 nights in November, and it was incredible! The food, the ambiance, the decor, the service, the location - everything was great! The little treat during welcoming - after the bumpy road - was superb! The river cruise was beyond amazing and...

We visited the Royal Chundu Island lodge and couldn't have asked for anything more... The arrival brings a real Southern African feel with the curio shop displaying local artists and creators from the African Continent. The colours and designs of the lodge interior is remarkably unique to the Chitenges, which are traditional Zambian fabrics worn as wrap arounds on the... More

Our 3 night stay at the Royal Chundu was an unforgetable experience. We arrived to a warm welcome, amazing scenery and the majestic Zambezi River. We loved our beautiful room sitting right on the bank of the river. The food was luscious, all meals from breakfast to lunch and I personally have never had better service. It was world class.

Our stay at Royal Chundu was part of a two week trip to southern Africa. The facility was beautiful, the rooms were fantastic (including the hippo that parked himself in front of our villa), the food was great, and most of all the staff was outstanding. My wife and I have stayed in many luxury hotels and resorts and I... More
