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.

There are not enough positive words to describe our stay at Chundu. The island, the surrounding nature and the rooms are breathtaking and truly an Oasis. However, the real highlight of our trip has to have been the staff. Not only did everyone take extensive measures to ensure that our stay was Covid safe, but they also treated us like royalty and ensured that all our needs were always taken care of. Dardley, the manager of the lodge, is funny, charismatic and excellent company, always making sure we had what we needed during our stay and for the journey back home. Our guide, Blessed was extremely knowledgable and taught us a lot about the birds (not a lark ;)), plants and wildlife. Tinashe always made sure there was a beverage at hand and was a glowing presence serving us all the incredible food cooked up by the top-notch chef. Fanwell always had a funny story to tell and made sure we always got to our room safely at night time. We are also extremely grateful for the staff that worked behind the scenes to make our stay so enjoyable. Chundu is a very welcome reminder of how beautiful Zimbabwe and Zimbabweans are, and we will be running back at any opportunity.

Our family visited Chundu at the end of February. I can't rate it high enough. Candy, Paul, Blessed and the rest of the team were amazing. Our stay @ Chundu was the highlight of our trip and we can't wait to be able to visit again.

What a simply wonderful and private lodge set on the Zambezi River! A place to relax and let everything go, and soak in being in nature. This is the best of both worlds - water & wildlife! Would highly recommend visiting this little island gem.

In short this holiday, like any holiday in Africa, was a once in a lifetime experience and a big part of that perspective was garnered during my stay on Chundu island. A 22km safari drive through the Zambezi national park where game such as hippo and elephant are abundant, followed by a brief ferry ride got us onto the island proper. There we were welcomed by the friendly Chundu staff who gave us a tour and showed us our rooms. The gorgeous chalets themselves are separate and provided us with our own personal view of the Zambezi, allowing us to experience the bush around us (from behind mosquito nets). Besides relaxing by the pool or walking on the beach we also took advantage of the activities available such as game walks with the experienced guides, Paul, or game drives with Blessed and sunset cruises with Max. Then we were welcomed back to the island for a star and candle light dinner followed by a drink by the fire all in the open, clean Zambezi air. Our sleep was only disturbed by the sounds of the wild around us with the croaks of frogs, chirping of crickets or the occasional mumbling or splashing of a hippo. After breakfast, other activities such as fishing and bird watching walks were also available. We were offered an evening game drive through the national park to naighbouring Chamabondo national park where we saw hyenas, zebra, giraffe, elephant, sable, and wildebeest gathered around a watering hole. Our visit to Chundu, while three days long, was a lifetime too short and definitely is worth returning to a thousand times over. Thank you to all involved and I apologize for not putting adequately into words just how amazing an experience we had.

Dear imaq8 Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and hope that we will have the opportunity to host you again one day! Chundu Island, like many beautiful places around the world is currently in lockdown, and we are missing all of our guests and can't wait to see them all again. Kind regards Nikki Meyer
