It’s easy to use the phrase ‘get away from it all’, but at Chundukwa River Lodge that’s exactly what you’ll be doing. Nestled right next to the wide Zambezi River in Zambia, this owner-run lodge is only 25 kilometres upstream from the Victoria Falls. The game-rich area is perfect for your Africa safari and its proximity to The Falls is great for a visit.
