Chundu Island

Perhaps Chundu’s best asset is its location. Chundu Island is located in the heart of the Zambezi National Park, only 21km from Zimbabwe’s majestic Victoria Falls. The island is superbly positioned on the Zambezi River and only accessible by boat.  From here guests can experience Africa in its purest state. It is peaceful, serene and beautiful, yet at the same time, guests have the opportunity to experience the best Zimbabwe has to offer. Peace and tranquility with opportunities for thrill seeking and adventure. After the hustle and bustle of Vic Falls, a town that caters to both the adrenaline junkies and the curious, indulge in deliciously chilled island life.  Chundu Island is an exclusive lodge with sole access to the beautiful 1.4km long island on the mighty Zambezi River.  The lodge is constructed in the shade of magnificent riverine trees blending with nature offering spacious rooms with wide vistas over the river into the Zambezi National Park or the banks of the river on the Zambian side. From Chundu Island there is a lot to do both on the water and on land:  Glorious sunset cruises with snacks and cocktails, the contrasting thrill and peace of canoeing on the river, fun fishing, exciting game drives and bush walks in the Zambezi National Park to mention a few, all under the direction and care of professional and experienced guides.

Chundu Island overview - our video

A video overview of my room and the Chundu Island property which is located in the middle of the Zambezi River, upstream from the Victoria Falls and a game drive away from the eponymous town. A lovely place to get away from it all and relax with beautiful sandy beaches that are literally squeaky-clean – and I actually had the island to myself on this occasion too 🙂
