The Chundukwa Lodge was the prefect place to relax at the end of a full on two week Safari trip to the the South Luangwa National Park. Located around 26 km outside Livingstone and sited right on the banks of the mighty Zambezi river, I would describe this as a boutique lodge.
With just 5 chalets built on stilts and a private cottage the lodge there are never more than 12 people at the lodge and this lodge is a wonderfull bolt hole from which to visit Livinstone and the Victoria Falls.
The Owners Doug & Gail Evans have built a beautiful lodge with well tended gardens, a series of lagoons and an attractive lodge house from which excellent meals are served.
The decor in the chalets and the main lodge is tasteful and typically African.
The staff are well trained, welcoming and always eager to please and the meals are of the highest standard.
Alison who manages the property is keen to help you plan your time to the best whilst you are at the lodge and our stay included a sun set cruise on the lodge's own motor boat, a visit to the local village and school which the lodge sponsors and a day's sightseeing to the the Victoria Falls and Livingstone.
Doug, Gail and Alison are the perfect hosts and I can't speak highly enough of this peacefully and tranquil lodge. Everthing about the lodge is top notch.
