#5 of 47 in Victoria Falls
Private and peaceful, a birdlover’s paradise bounded by wildlife, here you will find the best of Africa’s natural offerings from a seasonal beach and flooded marshes to lush wetlands and open grasslands. Breath-taking Chundu Island, accessible by boat, is only 21kms upstream from Zimbabwe’s legendary Victoria Falls. Eight spacious palm thatched rooms, each with their own private deck and perfect view of the Zambezi, are nestled beneath magnificent riverine trees. Chundu is perfectly positioned to provide guests with prime access to the Zambezi National Park, where 4×4 safaris soak up the sights and sounds of the African bush. Enjoy the wealth of the bush and Zambezi River with walking trails, river cruises and fishing. Chundu provides the perfect foil to the bustling town’s excitement. Maximize the flight to Victoria Falls and enjoy the peace and privacy of island living, canoeing and river cruises as well as game drives and bush walks.

The lodge and rooms are beautifully decorated. The small private island is situated right in the middle of the Zambezi river and there are gorgeous views. The staff were very pleasant and really did everything to improve our stay. The food was delicious. There were enough activities to keep us busy but also allowed time to relax. Dardley was very helpful when we had a problem getting our COVID tests results. We really didn't know what to expect but we are so glad that we went to Chundu Island!

Wow what an amazing experience we had during our stay. This was a last-minute booking for us and we could not be more pleased by the experience that we had. The entire team are efficient and ensure that you can just relax. They arranged transport with a very nice lady for us from the airport to the Zambezi National Park. There we were greeted by Blessed the most wonderful guide. No question was too small, and he took an interest in our interests and was always happy to assist where possible. Blessed as well as Godfree spent many hours with our sons helping them to fish, they are patient and kind and very accommodating. The lodge is run efficiently by Dudley, and nothing is too much trouble. He asked us our wishes when we arrived, and he ensured that all of them were booked and arranged. The rooms at the lodge are immaculate and comfortable and the staff at the lodge, especially Cletos were so kind to our kids and ourselves. The food at the lodge is wonderful, we got to eat some of the fish that was caught, we had a birthday whilst we were there, and they made such an effort to make a cake and sing to ensure that it was a special and memorable day. The Zimbabwean people and their hospitality are truly amazing, Vic falls is a clean and safe town, from the person assisting at arrivals to the staff at the lodge they made it easy and a truly wonderful bucket list experience for myself and my family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a wonderful and relaxing family vacation. Chundu Island and all the staff there deserve to have many visitors and be supported.

The best 4 day, true African Bush experience anyone could wish for. Dudley and his team went above and beyond all expectations, thank you for making such magical moments for us. The cuisine was top notch with always a cold refreshment at hand. Freshly caught bream was expertly prepared and the comfortable tented rooms felt really secure at night. The view of Victoria Falls from the helicopter is a must and on foot through the rainforest. Wish to go back

After a trip postponed by a virus that will not be named, what a way to start it off at Chundu. We spent 4 nights and every day and night felt perfectly curated by a stellar team of legends. Duds, Blessed, Gods, and the crew deserve massive kudos for the experience they run here where service and customer satisfaction is top of the agenda. If you want your day full of activities or chilling it’s got you covered - travelling into town to see the Falls (by foot, helicopter or hanging over the literal edge of the falls they will arrange), fishing, and guided walks, sunset cruises (which never, ever get old as the sky looks a perfect arrangement of different colours each night.) Just laying by the pool reading a book feels magic and the rooms are hard to leave if you like your privacy and creature comfort. The food is outstanding and, believe me, it doesn’t stop. Whether it’s the lunch buttery bream fish or the evening lamb shank or a breakfast spread that will not leave you going hungry… you will be impressed. Snack level - 11/10. Any excuse to nibble… and I am there! Much like the wine if you like a drop. The rooms are magnificent and it’s hard to not find excuses to have an outdoor shower and morning coffees as a croc might pass you by. I just felt like the guys could never do enough to ensure our stay was even more than we wanted. Having been into town (which is about a 90min drive or a short boat if you want to pay for a speed boat which honestly we never took because it’s a game drive seeing wildlife every time) this really is the place to stay if you want a quieter, luxury experience. The early morning roar of the odd lion, the greetings of bushbuck at breakfast and the regular hippos chilling out add to making this a truly first class African experience. Well done to the team for giving us the best overall accomodation experience of our trip. I have no doubt that I will step foot on Chundu again one day which is the ultimate litmus test of a A-star experience.

Room Tip: It is a 90min trip by car into the island. But they have beers ready!

Once we arrived at Chundu after an underwhelming experience at our previous lodge we were absolutely blown away. Dardley and his staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and the setting and ambiance at the lodge is fantastic. Sadly we only had 2 days there but we left feeling totally relaxed and spoilt. We will definitely be booking and going again soon.
