The detail

Ten exclusive River Lodge suites, disguised among the riverine vegetation, radiate seclusion and tranquility. The charm and secrecy of the four spacious Island Lodge villas are accentuated by its location resting on the Katombora river-island, sheltered by gushing rapids.

River Lodge scatters ten suites along the riverfront with wooden decks ensuring intimate and serene views accompanied by uninterrupted privacy. These luxurious suites gaze across the Zambezi River and peer into neighboring Zimbabwe’s picturesque landscape. Thatched roofing and interior furnishings echo the Zambezi hues and accentuate the surrounding natural beauty. Each suite boasts an en-suite bathroom, fan, air-conditioning, mini-bar, mosquito nets, safe, and luxury amenities.

With only four spacious villas on the island, Royal Chundu’s Island Lodge illuminates tranquility, exclusivity, and privacy. The well-appointed suites, splashed with cobalt blue and earthy palettes, open up onto private decks overlooking the river rapids. Refresh in the infinity pool and in the evenings relax in a riverfront bathtub - the perfect romantic getaway. Each villa boasts an en-suite bathroom, fan, air-conditioning, mini-bar, mosquito nets, safe, and luxury amenities.
