We have just returned home from Zambia where we went on our honeymoon and we stayed 4 nights at Chundukwa river lodge.
Chundukwa felt like home to us from the first day we arrived and we felt so relaxed, comfortable and at ease. It was perfect. I can honestly say that there is not one thing that we feel could have been better or improved in anyway. It was intimate and authentic and had a lot of Character and charm.
The rooms were incredible with a breath taking view over the river. The grounds so clean and tidy. The food.....WOW is all I can say about the food. It felt like we were fine dinning every night and I was blown away with the quality of the food and perfect mix of flavours with every meal.
The lodge is run by Gail and Doug, with help from Alison. Doug was not there whilst we were staying but Gail was so lovely and her hospitality and kindness really made our stay at Chundukwa unique.Alison was also extremely helpful throughout.
There are lots of activities to keep you entertained at the lodge. we did a trip to the falls, horse riding, canoeing on the Zambezi, sunset cruises, all which were organised by Gail and Alison very promptly and without us having to worry about anything. The beautiful grounds and views at the lodge also provide the perfect environment if you wish to relax.
Chundukwa will hold a special place in our hearts and was a trip which we will never forget. We are so glad that we chose Chundukwa for our honeymoon. You will not be disappointed.
