Meeting place of the chief", Royal Chundu is a sanctum of quiet solitude and 
untouched beauty.

These two luxurious lodges are hemmed in on the skirt of the forceful Zambezi River, set on a piece of untamed African earth with rapids shielding it up and downstream, and overlooking the imposing private watercourse and surrounding bushland. Kindle your senses with the fire of Africa and let the sights and sounds transfix you in a restful respite. Transcend the barriers of time, wandering in the backyard of David Livingstone and discover the spirit of Africa.

Revel in the allure and peace that is Royal Chundu.
