Description

Chundu Island Camp offers a memorable Zimbabwean safari experience on the Upper Zambezi. The camp is superbly positioned on an island in the Zambezi River, accessible only by boat. The location lends the camp a peaceful, authentic and remote atmosphere. But at the same time, being located only 21 km from Victoria Falls, Chundu Island is easily accessible to international visitors.

There are just six tented rooms, set on wooden decks with en-suite showers. The tents are simple but comfortable and in a fantastic setting. Guests are invited to wind down in the evenings with a sundowner on their private deck, while enjoying the sight of elephants and hippos on the opposite bank.

The dining area, lounge and bar are a short walk away from each room. Guests are encouraged to make use of this outdoor space, relaxing with a book in the afternoons, or enjoying a cocktail in the evenings. Meals are served around a large open-air dining table, where guests and guides can share stories of their adventures under the stars and plan the next day’s activities. Private dinners can also be arranged either on the beach or in the heart of Chundu’s bush land.

Chundu is your quintessential African hideaway. It is private, peaceful and diverse. The island offers the best of Africa’s natural offerings. From pristine beaches and flooded marshes, to lush wetlands and open grasslands.

Location & Directions

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Chundu Island Camp is located 21km from the Victoria Falls on an island in the midst of the Zambezi River.

When to go

There are two very distinct seasons at the Victoria Falls, the wet/flood season and the dry season. These seasons do not reflect the quantity of rain, rather reflect the volume of flow of the Zambezi River. From around March through to July the river surges in size as the rainfall in Angola and Zambia from months before swells the current. The falls are at their most dramatic at this time of year with huge columns of spray. The nights are cold and the days warm at this time of year. From around September to January the water levels drop, the falls are more accessible and views are clearer as the flow can drop in volume by 90%. It is worth noting that the rains come from late October through to February, this combined with high heat, 40 celcius or more, in October and November, causes high levels of humidity.
