“Royal Chundu’s cuisine mirrors the rich heritage of the region and the hospitality of the Zambian people, using truly Zambian ingredients and produce sourced from a 3km radius of the lodge - from the berry-smoked locally-sourced quail, poached cumquats, and spinach creamed with ground peanuts, to the Zambian Tasting Menu with its wine pairings”.

Developing local communities is essential for this property, as the two live in synergy.
The spirit of Zambia is in the heart and soul of the staff members you meet since they are all from neighbouring villages, working in this property ensures the future of their families. Their children go to a school founded by the property, where tablets replace all-too-rare books. In order to source fresh produce, the Royal Chundu devised the 4 km rule, highly effective for their carbon footprint. Fruit and vegetables must be grown within this radius. For that, it provides seeds to anybody who would like join the scheme. The biotope is also carefully monitored, so migrating birds come here to lay eggs and fish to reproduce.
