FAMILY POLICY

Families are very welcome to stay at the lodge, however the open-fronted nature of the chalets and dining area is not suitable for children under 12 years.

 

For families with young children we recommend our family cottage that is set 20 metres back from the river, but still has great views.

MALARIA PRECAUTIONS

 

Chundukwa Lodge is located in a low risk malaria region, and we are fortunate to have relatively few mosquitoes around the lodge. We do recommend that you see your doctor one month prior to travelling to acquire a prescription for prophylactics. The use of mosquito repellent during your stay, as well as wearing long-sleeved tops and trousers in the evenings, is strongly advised.
