Royal Chundu River Lodge
Set on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River is the exclusive Royal Chundu River Lodge, the larger of Royal Chundu's two lodges. This is a perfect option for those wanting exclusive access to the Zambezi River. The River Lodge is less than an hour away from the famed Victoria Falls and 30 minutes from Chobe National Park in Botswana which makes it a great base for a wide range of activities.
The 10 timber thatched suites are elevated on wooden decks to ensure intimate and serene views of the river. Each beautifully decorated villa has a spacious double bedroom and living space along with en suite facilities which includes a walk-in shower and twin sinks. You can enjoy the breathtaking river views from your own private veranda. The communal areas include a comfortable lounge, a well-stocked bar, a library, a TV room, and a boma area. After a day full of excursions, guests can relax with a spa treatment or lounge by the pool. The lodge's restaurant is made up of a traditional and international menu prepared by local chefs who source the finest ingredients from local suppliers or the lodge's own garden.
