My husband, parents, and I were recently in Livingstone visiting my 24 year old son serving in the Peace Corps. At the recommendation of my travel agent, we spent two nights in a family cottage at Chundukwa. I wish it was more than two nights!
When we arrived an incredible lunch was prepared for us on the deck. None of us could get over the quality of the food. We were on the all inclusive plan so all meals and drinks were included. Also included was a sunset river cruise. That alone was a safari because of all the wildlife we were able to see (crocodiles, hippos, zebras, giraffes, elephants, cape buffalo, and baboons) they also provided cocktails and snacks. When we went back to the lodge for dinner a roaring fire was set up with camp chairs. Such a nice touch! Dinner was outstanding!
The following day we had a driver provided for us to take us to the Falls. He was wonderful and knowledgeable. Because we loved the sunset cruise so much we did a second one. We were not disappointed!
What makes this lodge so wonderful is the delightful owners Gail and Doug, and their incredible staff. They truly love what they do and where they live and want you to have a true Zambian experience.
