Nestled near one of the world’s seven natural wonders, the Royal Chundu Zambezi River Lodge in Zambia is an architectural wonder to behold. Just 18 miles from Victoria Falls, the eco-sensitive sanctuary is comprised of 10 brick-under-thatch villas on the banks of the river and four villas which stand like sentinels on stilts on the private island of Katombora.
A haven for honeymooners, accommodations harmoniously marries the timeless beauty of nature with contemporary comforts, with private decks offering panoramic views of Africa’s fourth largest river, glass-walled showers, seashell-accented chandeliers which dangle over fabrics and fittings befitting a long lost era of colonial elegance, and an infinity pool framed by sun loungers and thatched umbrellas at the main lodge, which is linked to the villas by teak walkways.
Adventerous lovebirds can participate in a plethora of activities ranging from bird safaris, boat cruises, canoeing trips, visiting the elephants and buffalos which call nearby Chobe National Park home and packing for a romantic picnic repast by Victoria Falls.
