“The serenity in a sanctum of untouched beauty”
Maître de Maison - Tina Aponte
Upstream from the Victoria Falls, on the banks of the powerful Zambezi River, you find paradise on earth. Royal Chundu, with its two magnificent lodges in the middle of the bush far from the madding crowd, is the place to enjoy peace and quiet in what remains as an untamed corner of the earth. The River Lodge is on the riverbank while the Island Lodge is located on an island, both offering spacious suites with a colonial décor reminiscent of the splendour of the times of the early explorers. Returning from their excursions, guests can sample divine spa treatments with natural African ingredients or enjoy Zambian cuisine, watching stars light up the sky over the river.

Our commitments

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.
