Chundukwa was the perfect way to end our 10 day trip of South Africa and Zambia. None of the pictures do any justice to the peace and calm of this place. Gail, Allison and the entire staff is very welcoming and attentive to the needs of the guests. The food is fantastic...home grown veggies and home-cooked meals..added to the warmth of this lodge. Wish we could have spent more time here.
The chalets are on the river, open to the sights and sounds of the river Zambezi. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. Allison and Gail were in touch with us almost 2 months before our arrival, keeping us informed about what activities were available and how we could best use our time. Upon arrival to the lodge, more details were shared, making the transfers, pickups, drop-offs , what to expect at the border crossings in Zimbabwe and Botswana all seem easy. Our group of nine chose to do various activities like Devil's Pool at Victoria Falls, Chobe River Safari, village visits and many more. By day we enjoyed the activities and came back to the cozy lodge in the evenings, enjoying the drinks and delicious meals. They packed picnic lunch for us, while paying careful attention to the diet restrictions and allergies. A unforgettable celebration complete with Nshima ( bush meal) was arranged the night before we left, with the staff showing us and guiding us about the customs and food preparation. It was hard to leave. Thanks Gail, Allison and the entire staff for your thoughtfulness and making our entire vacation the best ever. Pray I for one will return here someday.
