The Chundukwa Story

Livingstone and the Victoria Falls has been a sought after destination for travellers for many years and predictably, all kinds of venues and accommodation have opened their doors to people wishing to visit the Falls for a number of years. Of course, for people wanting a true and engaging Zambezi and Victoria Falls experience, knowing which venue to visit and what they can expect can be confusing. On top of that, with the large number of ‘corporate hospitality’ venues that have opened up, there is a real need for an authentic experience of the Zambezi to be on offer. 

The property upon which Chundukwa is built has been in the family for 51 years and after building the original Chundukwa in ’92, Doug (owner with Gail) then used Chundukwa as a base to run mobile safaris through Zambia. In 2008, Chundukwa went out to lease but by early 2015, Gail and Doug took over Chundukwa again. They began to rebuild the Chundukwa that you see today – Zambian inspired, steeped in history, soul and authenticity, this is a real Zambezi experience offered by real people.

For people wanting to experience the real soul of the Zambezi, this is a great place to start. From organic, home grown ingredients served in the lodge to the wide, open river facing chalets and the incredible Ride Zambezi Horse Trails, every detail of the Chundukwa experience is watched over and managed by Gail, Doug and the rest of the Chundukwa team to ensure that every visitor leaves having experience the soul of the Zambezi.
