Our family spent a magical Christmas at the Royal Chundu lodge. The setting is dreamy, the staff lovely, the food outstanding. The individual lodges had stunning river views and delicious air-conditioning. It is a 45-60 minutes drive to Victoria Falls and a highlight was returning from the falls to RCL via helicopter, landing on the lawn. Our stay here was...

After an easy arrival at the relatively new Livingstone airport, we were picked up by the lodge driver and had a pleasant 50 minute drive of which some was through a game park with great views of giraffe. Fantastic welcome at the lodge with an interesting African neck massage whilst being told all about the place by the very impressive...

The Royal Chundu is an absolute Gem! It is a hidden treasure! We stayed at the Royal Chundu for three nights in February. We were greeted at the airport by a driver and then took a ride through Livingstone to get to the Royal Chundu. Upon being greeted by the staff and Aggie you see amazing views everywhere you turn...

Let's get this right out of the way - The Royal Chundu is one hour outside of Livingstone up the Zambezi River. If you've taken that as a negative then let me convince you that you should not consider anywhere else to stay while visiting the area. First, the rides gave us a wonderful opportunity to learn about the culture,...

We visited Royal Chundu (both River and Island Lodges) in early January 2017. This trip was a special one for us as ex South Africans visiting from Australia for a very important mission - to return my Dad's ashes to one of the places that we loved most. The lodges are beautiful, rooms luxurious and beautifully decorated and Aggie and...

Our family stayed at the island lodge for 2 nights, and we could not have been more happy. We were spoiled from the minute we set foot on the island. There are staff constantly waiting to take care of you, make sure you are happy, and ready to take care of all of your needs. The food is freshly cooked...

We had a nice time at The Royal Chundu but would not go back. The rooms were actually very nice and clean, we loved the food, the service was top-notch and we had a lovely time.

We had the best time at Royal Chendu. We spent 3 nights here and highly recommend. The staff was beyond helpful and nice. The food was amazing and the lodge is beautiful. I highly recommend rafting on the river and taking the sunset cruises at night. Both are awesome experiences. They will even take you on a private tour of...

We knew it would be good, but it was better! Really exceeded expectations in every way. What a gem and absolute labour of love! Love the fact that it is quite far off the beaten track and further than you think when you first turn off. The welcome at the Lodge was incredibly professional, warm and welcoming. Hessah has a...

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
