You can’t get much closer to the Zambezi River than this. Zambia’s first Relais & Châteaux property, Royal Chundu boasts two luxurious lodges, on a 15km stretch of private waterway, upstream from the magnificent Victoria Falls.

River Lodge is the larger of the two lodges, with 10 spacious river-front suites that overlook the river and the Matetsi Private Game Reserve on the other side. Extra conveniences include a library, wine cellar, business centre, satellite TV, dining room and complimentary WIFI.

If you want something more private and exclusive, stay at Island Lodge, which is set on its own private island, called Katambura. The four villas each feature a viewing deck, surrounded by gentle river channels, baobabs and two thousand year old Jackalberry trees. A great treat is the large open-air bath that lets you soak leisurely with nature all around you. There are also two lounges, a dining room, private dining decks, an infinity pool.

Whichever lodge you choose, enjoy sundowners on the deck of your suite and tuck into evening meals in the outdoor boma under the African stars. Dining is an experience in itself, with fresh, truly Zambian ingredients in every meal. Think berry-smoked quail, poached seasonal cumquats, watermelon and feta salad, and spinach creamed with ground peanuts.

There are plenty of activities to take up at and around Royal Chundu. You’re sure to go home with the fullest experience this Victoria Falls area has to offer. Go on sunset cruises, authentic tribal village walks, birding safaris, canoe and fishing trips, among many other great adventures.
