Stay at Royal Chundu

Royal Chundu, which means ‘a meeting place of the chief’, is a haven of quiet solitude and untouched beauty where guests and Africa live in harmony for a special moment in time. Together with the support of the communities, Royal Chundu strives to enhance the conservation and unspoiled beauty of this land, river and its islands, ensuring it will be enjoyed by future generations. Family-owned and run, Royal Chundu comprises two lodges on the banks of the Zambezi, just upstream from the Victoria Falls.

Experience celebrations such as the parrotfish migration up the Zambezi river and immerse yourself in the culture of the local communities who call the surrounding riverbanks home. Experience the very best that Zambia has to offer with a variety of tours, from helicopter flights and canoeing, to Katombora island walks and sunset cruises. Royal Chundu offers a true African experience for its guests by providing their own private sanctuary in the heart of Africa.

The team at True Travel had a simple brief: to send us on the world’s best family safari. As soon as our boat headed down the Zambezi, it all kicked off; we passed a herd of hippos, a lazy crocodile and a giraffe drinking nonchalantly on the riverbank. A magical experience from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble and if we had any issue that needed resolving, there was always someone on hand to do this. Before and after, they were off the charts – simply an awesome team.
