Chundu Island
Zambezi River, Zimbabwe

Chundu Island is perfectly set on a small island right in the middle of the majestic Zambezi River, located just 21km upstream from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

Why We Love It and You Will Too

  • This serene and peaceful lodge has sole access to a 1.4km long island, right in the middle of the Zambezi River. This is real island-living, right in the middle of Africa!
  • Spacious en-suite suites offer full vistas over the river and into the Zambezi National Park. Family options are available too. 
  • Chundu also offers plenty of activities to try, from sunset cruises and canoeing to guided game drives and bush walks through the reserve. Victoria Falls is located only 21km away.
  • Cool off after a busy day of sightseeing in Chundu's on-site swimming pool, taking in the impressive surrounding views. Double up on relaxation time if you dare, with a private in-room massage.
  • The main lounge and dining room is an attractive and welcoming common area. Chundu also boasts its own "beach" which can also be used for special dinners during the low water months (July to February).

Your Chundu Island Experience

Chundu Island's tagline is "Zambezi meets the Seychelles", and rightfully so. Quietly nestled on a 1.4km island, right in the middle of the Zambezi River, it even has its own soft, sandy "beach".

The serene and intimate location of Chundu is its top-selling feature. Since it is only 21km from Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwean side, it's perfect for those looking for a secluded Victoria Falls safari setting close to this iconic waterfall. 

Being reachable only by boat, it's an ideal place to escape the tourist hordes. The ambience is rightfully soothing, and we love the laid-back look and feel of the private suites sheltered by the riverine trees which dot the island banks.

Chundu's palm-thatched roofs complete that island feel, especially within the main lodge and bar area where you can experience the most majestic sunsets over the Zambezi River. Dining happens almost anywhere you like, but mostly under the stars that fill the sky each night.

Along with soaking up the sublime delights of the island, there is no shortage of things to do – try some fishing, go birdwatching, try a secluded island walk, canoe along the Zambezi River or set sail on a sunset cruise. Game drives are a must within the Zambezi National Park with plenty to see en route.
