Because Royal Chundu is on a private waterway, it ensures that the only boats the guests will see on this stretch will either belong to Royal Chundu or local mokoro fishermen. The river supports large populations of wildlife, allowing guests to see animals such as hippo, crocodile, elephant, zebra and giraffe right from the lodge’s viewing decks and even from their rooms.


The Royal Chundu is the first Relais & Châteaux property in Zambia. This property features 2 separate lodges: The River Lodge, and the Island Lodge.  Both lodges are situated on the private waterway, offering guests seclusion, privacy and exceptional views.
