Chundu Island is located 21km’s upstream from Victoria Falls in the Zambezi National Park and is without a doubt one of the most picturesque islands on the mighty Zambezi River. This teardrop-shaped island is approximately 1.4km’s long and at its widest point approximately 0.4km. Sit back, relax and enjoy every minute on Chundu Island with us.
Chundu Island is one of a few select private concessions on the Zimbabwean side of the Zambezi River, in the Zambezi National Park, providing a peaceful base from which to explore this exceptional area.
River View Suites
Chundu Island has 6 River View Suites each accommodating two persons. The River View Suites are configured with either a super king or twin beds. The open-plan suite has an en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath and a private outdoor shower. Each suite has its own private deck with a day bed and seating area overlooking the Zambezi River allowing for a tranquil space for you to relax and enjoy a cocktail or a cup of coffee and immerse yourself in your surroundings.
Family River View Suites:
Situated on the other side of the lodge are 2 Family River View Suites. These suites are configured with either a Super King or Twin Beds and have a separate second bedroom with two beds for children. There is one open-plan en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath and private outdoor shower. Each suite has its own private deck with a daybed and seating area overlooking the Zambezi River allowing for ample space for you to enjoy some family time away from the Main Lodge should you wish to do so.
The 2 Family River View Suites each have a 2nd bedroom with 2 3/4 beds for 2 children up to the age of 18. Should both family units be occupied and provided that the maximum number of children under the age of 12 accommodated on the island is 6, a third ‘rollaway bed’ can be accommodated in the River View Suites for a child under the age of 16.
What activities can you do at Chundu Island?
There is so much to do at Chundu Island, making the most of the mighty Zambezi River, the stunning island setting and of course the Zambezi National Park. For those seeking a bit of a thrill, take a walk on the wild side – walking in the National Park with an armed professional guide, looking out for the big and small game – or set off downriver in an inflatable canoe, spotting elephants drinking from the banks while steering clear of inquisitive hippos and crocodiles.

Children under the age of 6 (six) years by request. The maximum number of children under the age of 12 on the island at any one time is 6.
