Chundukwa River Lodge is located on a horse ranch, set alongside the Zambezi River just 25kms from Livingstone Town. We offer clients a farm-stay experience within a natural garden of beauty and diversity, unique accommodation, home-grown and healthy food – and the opportunity to relax, horse-ride or immerse yourself in a few or all of the bucket-list experiences that Livingstone and Victoria Falls has to offer.
Our menus are always guided by what is available in the garden and our surrounding neighbours, from whom we support locally. We have a farm-to-fork philosophy which means we like to serve food that is seasonal and that reflects our “pick, clean and serve” approach.
Our boutique lodge offers five river-facing chalets and a family-friendly cottage. Guests stay with us on a fully-inclusive basis, which includes all meals, house drinks, a sunset cruise experience and the opportunity to have a private vehicle with driver for a day trip to Victoria Falls. Longer stay guests may opt for additional complimentary experiences with us.
