When it comes to the Victoria Falls, there is no other sight on the continent that better exemplifies the pure might and magnificence of nature than this, the largest waterfall on earth. The Zambian side offers something wholly unique in the drier months when the Zambezi is at its lowest, between August and January as Devil’s Pool at Livingstone Island becomes accessible to visitors brave enough to swim in this natural infinity pool on the cliffs of the Falls.
Escape to your suite, whether tucked away between the trees on the mainland or on the edge of Katambora Island, for private spa treatments with natural African ingredients or intimate meals beside the river. Sink into a sunset bubble bath on your suite’s deck at Island Lodge, as candles and stars shed the only light on your secluded setting. For something truly spectacular, dine under the stars at a remote island, a short boat trip away. As this calmer stretch of the upper Zambezi calls for, this is your chance to reconnect with the pace of nature, with yourself and loved ones.
Royal Chundu reserves a private stretch of the Zambezi for its guests - 15 kilometres of the 3,540 kilometre long stretch. As you enter through the magnificent walkway of River Lodge, a slice of blue peeks out in greeting, luring you to the calm upper reaches of Africa’s fourth-longest river. Here, at the meeting place of Zimbabwe and Zambia, hippopotamuses and crocodiles frolic beside monitor lizards and African fish eagle. Occasionally, buffalo, zebra, giraffe or elephant make their way down to the banks. Join them on a kayaking adventure or a sunset cruise, or try your hand at catch and release fishing.
