Situated 21 km upstream from Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River, Chundu Island is an intimate island which forms part of the Zambezi National Park. This peaceful and secluded setting allows for the perfect birding and wildlife interactions, both on the island and the mainland.

During the low water months, July to February, the western end of the island reveals an incredible beach where sundowners, special meals or games can be enjoyed. The main area of camp is situated in the shade of the majestic Natal Mahoganies which offer shade all year round.

The exquisite driftwood constructed bar is separated from the dining room and lounge by a natural wall of trees. Evenings can be enjoyed under a blanket of African stars, next to the fire pit, while enjoying the serenade of the African bush. Enjoy walks around the island, where you will encounter the vast birdlife or resident bushbuck while learning of the flora and fauna of the island or a morning and evening game drive on the mainland. Morning and evening boat cruises offer the perfect birding opportunities, and the island offers excellent fishing.

    I just love that the Chundu Island Lodge is located on its own island in the Zambezi River! The secluded tented chalets are beautifully appointed, spacious with minimalistic decor. There is an indoor bath and an outdoor shower – an absolute must in the bush! The views of the river from the room’s spacious and private deck as well as the bathroom and bed are simply phenomenal. Recently refurbished, the design and construction are professionally done and well thought-out.
    Your morning tea/ coffee is brought to you at a pre-arranged time allowing you to listen to the awakening African bush from the warmth and comfort of your bed. The hot water bottles are a welcome surprise during the cold winter months (providing extra warmth if you don’t have the luxury of sharing the bedt with someone). All the food was outstanding – they even serve chicken livers for breakfast. Candy, the lodge’s manager, made me feel very welcomed, was extremely flexible when I decided to rather take in the lodge’s surroundings than participate in the various activities they offer such as boating experiences, fishing, game drives or canoeing. All in all a wonderful getaway – combine this with a few nights in Hwange National Park or add it at the end of a busy itinerary exploring Zimbabwe or Botswana.
