Chundukwa: The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>Zambia>Victoria Falls>Chundukwa

Chundukwa is a small, charming and personal lodge, around half an hour from the hustle and bustle of Livingstone and Victoria Falls with a laid-back natural feel.

What’s Chundukwa really like?

The lodge is wonderfully intimate, with  just five stilted chalets overlooking the river, and one larger family cottage, which sleeps up to six. The rooms are rustic in feel, with lots of natural wood, thatched roofs and stone bathrooms. The chalets have partially open fronts to make the most of the views out over the river and so you can hear the birds singing in the morning.  There’s a cosy mess area, where you’ll eat jolly, home-cooked meals, and a small pool and fire outside.

What can I do at Chundukwa?

While you’re here the lodge can help you arrange a visit to the falls, riding, laid-back boat trips on the river, fishing, community visits, trips to Livingstone Island, lunch at the elephant café, white water rafting (this depends on water levels so is seasonal) and helicopter and microlight flights over the falls, to mention just a few! For guests to have time and want a leisurely exploration, a stay of 2 or 3 nights is a great way to experience so much more than just the falls.

Giving back at Chundukwa: 

The team at Chundukwa are committed to the local community and their surroundings.  They support Nakawa Community Academy which helps to educate and feed 107 students. In addition they support a donkey welfare project (if you have space in your luggage old yoga mats are most welcome to be cut up and made into harnesses) and support anti-poaching dogs in the South Luangwa.
