Overview

Zambia is situated mainly on a vast central plateau, and boasts the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers - as well as one of the largest waterfalls in the world, the Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. Most of the country has a mild, pleasant climate, while the river valleys are hotter and more humid; the extreme north becomes tropical on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, one of Zambia's ten large lakes. While Lusaka is the country's capital, Livingstone, just ten kilometres from the Falls, is more well known to adventurous travellers.

Royal Chundu Island Lodge

Victoria Falls, Zambia
  • TypeLodge

Set on a private stretch of the Zambezi River in Zambia, Royal Chundu indulges both the seeker of respite and thrill. As the only lodge along the Zambezi that does not share its waterways with other Zambian operators, we hold a tranquility not even the call of Zambia, the iconic cry of the African Fish Eagle, can disturb. Yet, some 30 kilometres upstream from the Victoria Falls, adventure abounds.
