About
Description
Chundukwa River Lodge is an African Bush Lodge built on stilts overlooking the Zambezi river. It is beautifully situated with panoramic views of the river - upstream from the Victoria Falls. Offering the best ...More of both worlds - only 30 min from the falls and far enough from Livingstone town to be away from the noise of helicopters and traffic. Essentially perfect for nature and bird lovers and for those who simply want to absorb the best of Africa. There are flights from Johannesburg and Lusaka every day and easy road access from Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. Our private thatched cottage is perfect for those wanting to enjoy a home on the Zambezi. It has 1 double en-suite bedroom, 1 double/twin bedroom and one child's bedroom, a second bathroom, an open plan lounge/kitchen area, shaded patio, deck and rock splash pool. The cottage comes fully staffed with a personal,waiter and house-keeper. Less

We are a family with two kids ages 16 and 12. We will be going next June. I was wondering if it was worth booking that you do cottage or just get a room like Jacana and add two beds for the kids. Thanks!

Our reservation for two days in May includes the sunset river cruise and entrance fee to Victoria Falls. What it does not specify is how we get to and from Victoria Falls. Does the lodge provide transportation and is it included in the rate or do we pay extra? Thanks for the help.
