Experience & Activities  

Royal Chundu encompasses two lodges, River Lodge and Island Lodge, both with views of the Zambezi. Ten exclusive River Lodge suites, set among the trees are nests of seclusion and peace. The charm and secrecy of the 4 spacious Island Lodge villas is accentuated by its location on the private Katombora island in the middle of the river, sheltered by rapids.

Experiences and activities include: photographic river safaris, canoeing the Zambezi river, tiger fishing, visits to Victoria Falls, sunset & sunrise cruises, Katombora Island walk, and birding. Additional activities available (with extra charges) include: steam train dining, a visit to Chobe National Park, Livingstone Island and Devil’s Pool, helicopter flights, and microlight flights.


Island Lodge – Villa: With only four spacious villas on the island, Royal Chundu’s Island Lodge illuminates tranquility, exclusivity and privacy. The well-appointed suites, splashed with cobalt blue and earthy palettes, open up onto private decks overlooking the river rapids. Refresh in the infinity pool and in the evenings relax in a riverfront bathtub – the perfect romantic getaway.

River Lodge – Suite: These luxurious ten suites gaze across the Zambezi River, and peer into neighbouring Zimbabwe’s picturesque landscape. Thatched roofing and interior furnishings echo the Zambezi hues and accentuate the surrounding natural beauty. An outdoor boma for dinners around the fire as well as a lounge and bar encompass the main area. In close proximity to a helicopter pad, River Lodge is easily accessed and welcomes children.
