There is so much to do at Chundu, making the most of the mighty Zambezi River, the stunning island setting and of course the Zambezi National Park. For those seeking a bit of a thrill, take a walk on the wild side – walking in the National Park with an armed professional guide, looking out for big and small game – or set off downriver in an inflatable canoe, spotting elephants drinking from the banks while steering clear of inquisitive hippos and crocodiles.

For the curious, consider morning or evening game drives in the park and fishing or bird walks on the island. And, when you’ve had enough excitement for the day, what about relaxing at the pool overlooking the river and park. Or indulge in an in-room massage or sunset cruise with cocktails and snacks.

Enjoy a relaxed sundowner cruise in style as the sun descends in splendid multi-hued reflection on the surface of the Zambezi. A selection of drinks and snacks are served on our comfortably furnished open air barge as you enjoy the enchanting tranquillity of dusk enveloping the island.

Safari walks

Discover the thrill of walking through the Zambezi National Park. A skilled armed guide will accompany you either in the early morning or late afternoon as you take in all the wonders of nature. Keep an eye out for some of the larger animals that populate the area, including elephant, warthog, a variety of antelope, buffalo, lion and even the elusive leopard.

Canoeing on the Zambezi

Paddle down the mighty Zambezi for a couple of hours under the watchful eye of your qualified river guide. Comfortable and steady inflatable canoes seat two, making it a wonderful activity for a couple to share. Look out for elephants drinking from the shore, and of course hippos and crocodiles. This experience transforms from serene to exciting and back again in no time at all.

Safari game drives

Chundu Island offers both early morning and late afternoon safari drives conducted in specially adapted open Landcruisers, with experienced and qualified guides. In the interests of conservation we are committed to our no off-road driving policy. Safari drives take place in the Zambezi National Park, which together with the Victoria Falls National Park extends over an area of 56 000 hectares.

A typical morning drive includes an early start with a fresh cup of coffee or tea and a snack, and a short ferry ride across the river to the park. From there your guide will drive you through the park for approximately 2.5 hours exploring the scenic beauty of this beautiful park while looking out for the numerous species that inhabit this area.

Your skilled guide will interpret animal behaviour and interactions. In the late afternoon after a light tea, you can enjoy an afternoon safari drive, returning to the lodge in time for a sunset drink at the bar, or on the evening cruise.

Fun fishing

Fish from the island or putter upstream on our fishing boat, trying your hand at catching the pugnacious Nembwe Bream or take on the tussling Tigerfish – we supply rods and tackle. While our chefs will be delighted to prepare a fish you’ve caught for you to eat, all fish that are not going to be eaten must be returned to the water. We are proud supporters of catch and release fishing. For serious fishermen, please enquire about fishing charters which we will be happy to book for you at an extra charge.

Island walks

Wander the island pathways on your own and discover our incredible birdlife, monkeys and Bushbuck families. Relax with a book or just enjoy the solitude at various points along the island. Children must be accompanied by an adult on all island walks.


Birding on Chundu Island and in the Zambezi National Park offers more than 400 species of (recorded) birds, including rarities such as the African Finfoot (Podica senegalensis) and Pel’s Fishing Owl (Scotopelia peli) as well as the Shalow’s Turaco (Tauraco schalowi) which shares similar physical traits and habit to the Livingstone’s Turaco (though never sharing a range). This bright green bird has the longest crest of all the Turaco’s and occurs from western Angola and southern DRC to Tanzania, Zambia, the Caprivi Strip (Namibia) and northern Botswana. It is spotted fairly regularly on the island as well as in the park.

Massage therapy

Indulge in a massage in the privacy of your room, or on your deck overlooking the river and Zambezi National Park. Choose from a selection of relaxing or invigorating massages available.

Please note that this activity is not included in our rate and will be charged for separately. Massages need to be pre-booked a day in advance

Helicopter flips
